“Cristian is an amazing CCIE instructor for CCIE (R&S) with impressive teaching skills. I studied in a bootcamp conducted by him in Melbourne from March 23rd to April 3rd, 2015. I was thrilled to listen to him. In fact I didn’t want to lose a single minute of his instructions at the bootcamp. Cristian’s teaching methodology is incredibly impressive. He covered in-depth technical matters providing logical connections between things, powerful enough to explore and retain with me for years to come. The most important aspect of his teaching is how he stresses the value of learning fundamentals correctly. Moreover he stressed the value of a correct thinking process in preparing for the CCIE Lab. These are immeasurably valuable for me. Well done Cristian, please keep it up.” —Chad Basnayake, INE Bootcamp Student
