Passing the CCIE Security exam means that you are ready to take the lab exam. Within 48 to 72 hours, Cisco will be notified of your result. There is no need to fax your result, as was previously required. To set a lab exam date, visit the following Cisco.com page and select the location and exam date you prefer:
The lab exam is popular, and you might need to wait a month or more for an opening. Some locations have a waiting list of 6 months or more. For example, the Sydney, Australia CCIE lab is generally not fully booked, and you might get a seat at a time of your choice; in Brussels, Belgium, you might need to wait 6 months. Make sure you agree to a testing date that you feel comfortable with, and leave yourself plenty of time to study for the rigorous lab exam. After passing the written test, you have 18 months to pass the lab exam, so, if necessary, you can study for a few months before taking it. After each lab attempt, you have an additional 12 months to pass the lab, you can have up to 3 years to pass the lab if you happen to fail the lab exam more than once.
