The guy said the his company paid for a lot of the training along the way. CCIE is a vendor cert afterall (Yes I am a CCIE, 8041). It's not the cert, but experience (even for CCIE). Having passed the lab, I now believe that one can get this cert with modicum of experience - something I woudln't have believed before I passed.

So if the company footed the bill for his training, shouldn't it be a two-way street?
