Lesar was recognized for his outstanding training deliveries to CCIE Routing & Switching students for the second consecutive year.
The Cisco Instructor Excellence Award recognizes Certified Cisco Systems Instructors (CCSIs) globally who provide the highest quality training experience and who demonstrate the best overall instructor performance as measured by the customer satisfaction survey.
We are proud to announce that our instructor and leading engineer Robert Lesar, CCIE #17091, is among the recipients of the Cisco 2017 Instructor Excellence Award. Lesar won the title for his outstanding work with engineers preparing for the CCIE Routing and Switching exam. The CCIE Instructor Excellence Award is awarded to instructors who consistently focus on delivering the highest-quality CCIE training, with an annual average customer satisfaction score above 4.8. Robert was also the leading CCIE instructor in the largest global Cisco CCIE Routing & Switching learning program in the world last year, within which he taught over 70 students from South Africa.
"The award clearly recognizes Robert's extensive practical experience and expertise in Cisco's Routing and Switching technology and his outstanding ability to pass this knowledge to the next generations of CCIE-certified engineers. CCIE candidates under his mentorship always emphasize Robert's excellent communication skills, and they appreciate his detailed monitoring of their progress and guidance through topics that are their weakest points, a combination that significantly helps them pass the CCIE exam. I would like to congratulate Robert for this achievement and for his excellent work as a Cisco instructor, content developer, and Cisco proctor," said Bojan Kotnik, Director of Learning Services, NIL.
We have been closely linked with the Cisco CCIE program since its inception in 1993. Our first CCIEs had the designation numbers 1354 and 1556, and we have more than 20 years of experience in delivering CCIE training to CCIE-exam candidates worldwide. All of our CCIE-instructors are active field-proven engineers who enhance the standard learning curriculum with real-life experience. This results in training that exceeds customers' expectations and highly increases their chance of passing the rigorous CCIE exam in their first attempt, which is also reflected in the Cisco CCIE Instructor Excellence award.
