CCIE Routing & Switching

Introduction

CCIE is the third level of the Cisco certification. The course is customized keeping in mind the ultimate aim of achieving technology expertise and CCIE R&S Lab Exam. It includes intensive CCIE-lab workshop to improve time-management & troubleshooting skills. At the end of the course candidates are ready to attempt the CCIE lab exam at Cisco Systems.

The CCIE Routing and Switching certification is a respected networking certification, recognizing network engineers for their knowledge, skills and expertise of Cisco solutions. This training will provide you with profound technical knowledge to design and implement complex solutions. The eight-hour lab exam tests your ability to configure actual equipment and troubleshoot the network in a timed test situation. You must make an initial attempt of the CCIE lab exam within 18-months of passing the CCIE written exam. If you do not pass the lab exam within three years of passing the written exam, you must retake the written exam before being allowed to attempt the lab exam again.
