This course is designed for:

  • CCIE candidates who are preparing for the CCIE Routing and Switching Lab Exam.

Recommended as preparation for:

  • The Cisco CCIE Practical Exam.

The CCIE lab exam is an eight-hour, hands-on exam which requires you to configure and troubleshoot a series of complex networks to given specifications. Knowledge of troubleshooting is an important skill and candidates are expected to diagnose and solve issues as part of the CCIE lab exam. You will not configure end-user systems, but are responsible for all devices residing in the network (hubs, etc.). Point values and testing criteria are provided

The following courses and program components are recommended for further study

  • CCIERS2 – CCIE 360 R&S Advanced Workshop 2
  • CCIE 360 R&S Exercise Workbook and Practice Labs
