I have just looked on the cisco website and it appears BSCI has been discontinued is this really true? Can cisco remove the most fundamental course in the ccnp qualification. I am sure that this was not the case and I did not hear anything from my netacademy with this being discontinued when I was doing this during the winter months. No lecturer informed any student at the academy that this has been removed from the requirements for CCNP. I myself have just completed the BSCI netacademy course and was preparing for the exam (4 months i hope of additional studying) but today no more. I just feel for those that have just recently completed the exam will these people get a refund. I am so surprised that CISCO has taken this move without major head's up like with previous courses. I have to say I am shocked!!!
