*If the student has not redeemed their digital course kit by the end of the class, it will be cancelled.  The student will receive an automated email from Cisco Network Learning Space indicating their course kit reservation has been cancelled.  If the student requests the digital course kit at a later time, and we confirm attendance in the class and receipt of payment for the course, a new course kit can be reissued.  However, if a version change has occurred in the meantime, the original version may no longer be available.
