Get a Cisco certification and your tummy tucked at the same time

Koenig Solutions, a New Dehli-based training company, is offering boot camp courses for Cisco and Microsoft certifications in exotic locations, including Goa beach and the Himalayas, reports the Dominion Post of New Zealand.  

Students pay for their own flights to their chosen destination and cost of the bootcamp includes the course and exam fees, one set of course material, plus room and board.

Koenig offers training for a range of Cisco certifications, including the new Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA/CCENT), CCNP, CCDA, and CCIE (the written exam). The cost depends on the location, accommodation level and the duration of the boot camp. For example, the nine-day CCNA/CCENT course is priced at $1,100 for students in Dehli living in a budget hotel. More prices here.

The training provider boasts a 90% pass rate for Cisco exams, and 95% for Microsoft tests.

And if you would like to bring back (or take away) something more than a vendor certification from your trip, Koenig can provide advice about medical procedures in India. According to its FAQs:

Medical services in India are at par with the world. Indian doctors are renowned all over the world. However, the costs are a fraction of costs in countries such as USA, UK, & Australia. A number of our students have scheduled cosmetic, dental and ocular procedures during their stay in India.
