Going To India
Posted 19 May 2005 - 10:58 PM
I have decided to move to india for a period of 6 to 8 months to get intensive Cisco training... It is cheaper there and resources are available.
But i am wondering which city is the best? Anyone here can help me... I know Sadikhov has a huge number of indian members.
Thanks in advance.

Although Bombay is a bit costly, it has the best Cisco training programs available across the country.
There is one institute in bombay called 'Compufield' which is prefered mostly by the outside students.
Get more information here:
Other good institutes for Cisco training are:
1. Karrox Technologies ( karrox.com)
2. Gatestraining institute (gatestraining.com)
There is only one Cisco authorized training centre available in mumbai, in fact across India.
It is 'Datacraft'

For CCNA It costs Rs. 10000 (INC) & for CCNP it costs around Indian Rs. 40000.
Does anyone know much about Koenig bootcamps ?. I was also thinking of doing some sort of a bootcamp in India ?!
& for CCIE the bootcamp training costs around Indian Rs. 100000.
In bombay CCIE training is available only at Datacraft, Compufield & Karrrox.

Thanks for choosing to study in INDIA.
Education is always best in South India especially Chennai .
Even technical centres are very much more for studying and practising.
So better choose chennai since cost of living is cheap when compared to other places
Thanks and Regards

As I´m going soon in india for the same reason, I would like to ask you if you have already decide on which institution do you plane to take the courses?
On my point of view: Koening seems to be professionel..it cost a bit more but at least your are sure to get good courses or ?
I´m going in India in august for the CCNA only and then in January for the CCNP
There are 4 institution who seems to be OK
But I don´t which on to take..any advise?
Thx a lot
Posted 05 June 2005 - 11:14 PM
Im going around august as well, but im doing my ccna here (australia)
Koening dont offer ccie
But im waiting for more reviews till i make my decision
Posted 06 June 2005 - 03:15 AM
Did you already select an institution..which one?, in which city?
Posted 06 June 2005 - 03:29 AM
So In mumbai..it will cost my around 550 ˆ
including " "one to one instructor", food, accomodation and exam"
for 50 hours with compufield, but I did not get any advise about this institution and that is the resaon why for the moment koening is the best option... but I did not yet take any decision
Other major problem is the Strong India/english accent who can be not understandable! that´s another trick..according to koening their instructor are trained to provide an understandable english for foreigners
So guys and girls if you have any tips please share it with us

on top of that THEY THREATEN TO BEAT U BY GOONS AND BREAK UR LEGS IF U DONT PAY THE TOTAL FEE EVEN IF THEY DONT FINISH THE COURSE...
so watch out dude... dont even think of going to ur nearest JETKING ...... they even accepted they were incapable of finishing the course and it was just a big adverstisement to draw the students...
Posted 07 June 2005 - 10:59 PM
When I emailed them both they also told me that they are not linked to one another ???
What's interesting is that the student profiles and most other things also remain the same ??
I am beginning to wonder whether this is another con ??!!
Maybe our Indian forum friends will be able to advise us better on these issues and places !

nice institutes are here for ccna,ccnp & ccie
ccna 8000 (INR approx)
ccnp 33000 (INR approx)
ccie 100000 (INR approx)
Bangalore is a nice place to stay...nice climate...nice people...everything nice abt it...
Posted 08 June 2005 - 01:23 PM
im deciding between compufield, ipsol and hbfnetworks
Im leaning towards compufield, cause my current trainer who is from india claim they are very good, and have a good reputation.
hbfnetworks seems to be the most econimical.
koeing dont offer ccie
Any other input at all will be most helpful.

Also want to move to India for PIX firewall and RHCE. I've been looking at this one in Hyderabad
www.zoomgroup.comDoes anyone know anything about it? Secondly are jobs easy to get around there. I don't mean anything fancy, just something that can enable me survive, even manual work. I want to get as many certifications as i can and i think they could not be cheaper anywhere than India, but even that is still a problem. So I might have to work. Please Inform.

I change my mind...I booked with Gates (CCNA and CCNP)
I will be there in the last week of this month till the end of August
I booked for the regular courses, however the boot camp look like not so bad and I definitely would like to take it....but I don't have enough money:blush:
Cheers and greetings from Belgium

I will describe the training facilities as functional as it had everything needed just not well decorated. The quality of training from my trainer Sheetal was very good.
The organization of Koenig is excellent. They will bend over backwards to make sure you are happy. I was delayed on the way and just one phone call made sure my travel plans were adjusted to my new itinerary.
The trainers were recognized by all students to be of very high calibre - as good as in the UK. One possible problem can be if you get a trainer with a thick Indian accent. In this case I suggest you talk to Sandeep and ask for a change of trainer. Teaching styles and calibre varied and some tutors seemed better than others. But this can be said for any training institute.
My Hotel in Shimla was a budget Hotel. It had an excellent view. It was high on the mountain and we had 60 steps to climb. I remember a colleague of ours was happy to have lost almost 10 pounds since he joined the boot camp. The service of the hotel was comparable to a guest house in the UK.
We had to work 6 days a week, learn, learn and learn. This did not leave much time fo sighseeing. I gave myself a week after the course to go to Dharamshalain the hope of meeting His Holiness Dalai Lama. I was not successful though.
The pick-up and drops to the hotel and back were very well taken care of. Koenig assignes a person to assist you in everything you want (transport, accomodation, directions, everything you want). I actually preferred waking through the beautiful mountaneous terrain, just like most of my colleagues.
Is it worth going there ? My company is still doing it. Also the time table is ver interesting and they give a lot of flexbility for joining.
Do keep in mind that this is no for everyone. You should be highly motivated and have enough experience.

I flew to Delhi by Kuwait airlines since they offered the cheapest deal. It meant changing flights at Kuwait city. If you can afford fly direct.
On arrival I was met at the Delhi airport by a smiling chap. He spoke little English but was courteous and friendly. I was escorted to a waiting car and had to ride through Delhi traffic. The ride was a cultural shock. It can rival the thrill of any roller coaster ride anywhere in the world. People do not follow traffic rules here and breaking the rules is more common than following them.
Anyway I did reach the Hotel in a state of shock. I was immediately checked in. I was even met by an English guy at the Hotel. He was attending a Boot Camp at Koenig and a 15 minutes chat with him did much to relieve my apprehensions. Koenig was for real. Phew.
The Hotel room was comparable to a decent B&B we have back home. It had hot and cold running water and a desk to keep my laptop. It also had a small fridge. I arrived on a Sunday so had the full day to relax and get over the jet lag. In the evening I met my English friend and we went for a beer. The Indian beer is not bad and Kingfisher is the most popular brand here. You do get Heneiken here but it is much more expensive.
My first room was very noisy and I spoke to the hotel reception to change it. They did the next day. Now I could relax and study.
Monday I was taken by cab to the training centre. I was met by a lady there but I insisted on meeting Sandeep. He was the guy who I had communicated with and I felt more confident parting my money with him.
I was lucky to have a good trainer. His knowledge of the subject was excellent. Places where he was lacking, he was honest enough to admit and get back to me in reasonable time. In fact, most of the students I spoke to were happy with their trainers. While I was there 3 students took their RHCE exam and all passed. I do not think that the training is a problem here. The quality is as good as anywhere in the world.
They have a big lunch room. The food is not exactly what we get in our country. There are no beef products and having chicken everyday does get boring. My Hotel was vegetarian and I had to eat all my meals outside.
If you want to pass exams, it is worth coming here. There is no magic. You have to study very hard. There is so much information to be crammed that it is unlikely you will carry it all back to UK. I am still revising the books I received their. I got them couriered because I could not carry the more than 15 kgs. it weighed (books alone).
The certification did help. In past 4 weeks I have made 10 applications and already have 2 interviews lined up. I just need to pass the technical interview now.
Good luck to everyone and hope the above information helps.

You chhose a best place to gain knowledge....im in chennai only
in my opinion if you need to Study CCNA any small centers is more than enough
bcz you need just one or two routers to do the things.
Here a famous institute for handling CISCO division is SANS BOUND
SOLUTIONS....for more information about this institute ask MCSE2k3 moderator
"sal" he know well about this.but one main disadvantage is you find lots and lots
of people their.for a single class nearly 100 students will be their.but the infrasturcture are nice.And cost of living chennai is good u can get cool places to vist and enjoy ur stay here.

currently in the states, i'll be visiting my native-place Pune for personal reasons this Jan. at the same time i'm also contemplating on doing some security-related courses some Pix, Unix admin or Project Management.
i went through the names of the institutes that you guys mentioned on this board. thanks for that......but, are there any specific places that are good for Pix, or Unix....(...because i know that's how it was (atleast when i was there....)...that some places were specifically great for a particular speciality.....
can you please give me your inputs for the following courses:
2) Unix admin
3) Project Management (PMP certification)
4) SSCP (security certification)
....as usual, i'm not sure what i want to do :-) but i'm just making an effort to do it at the best possible place...
thank you for your time and attention and i look forward to some input ....(India is great !!)
