On April 5th 2016 (4/5/2016), I made my first post to this blog, and today on October 10th 2019 (10/10/2019) I have passed my final CCNP Exam the TSHOOT 300-135 πŸ™‚

Along the way I have hit many major life events that could very well have stopped my progress, gave me a reason to put off studying, however I am living proof that there is nothing that can stop you from achieving your goals while there is breath in your lungs!

The TSHOOT is really a high bar to clear in terms of Cisco exams, I thought it was about on par with ROUTE, if you don’t know the curriculum inside out you just will not pass it (which I failed my first attempt at TSHOOT and failed ROUTE twice before passing).

I have wanted to earn my CCNP for over a decade when I was in college, I feel an immense sense of pride and accomplishment, my head was floating above the clouds when I walked out of the test center holding a Pass grade today!

I will turn my attention to higher studies in pursuit of the CCIE Enterprise upon my return, though it will be done via Specialist certifications to hone my skills in Virtualization / SD-WAN / WAAS / Programming / Etc, however I will continue to post any and all new studies in articles to this page once I am back on THE GRIND! πŸ™‚

My CCNP Grind is finished, good luck to everyone in the pursuit, and never give up!

Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, otherwise until next time, Loopy out!!!
