CCIE Routing & Switching Fundamentals Bootcamp

Our entirely hands-on bootcamps are unmatched – offering 5 full days of in-depth, comprehensive CCIE lab exam training, taught by expert instructors with real-world experience. This Fundamentals Bootcamp is intended to serve as a jump start your journey as you begin studying for your CCIE Routing & Switching Written Exam.

Make your CCIE goal a reality! Join the thousands of students who passed their CCIE written exam after participating in an INE Bootcamp.

Our CCIE Routing & Switching Fundamentals Bootcamp is five days of intensive, hands-on, instructor-led training. The instructor will alternate between presenting material and guiding attendees through hands-on, real-world exercises. Attendees will be provided access to a complete rack system encompassing the necessary topology.

The goal of our Fundamentals Bootcamp is to equip students with a foundation-level knowledge of Cisco Routing & Switching technologies. The primary focus of the class is core concepts and topics found on the CCIE written exam.

Our Fundamentals Bootcamp is for anyone who is beginning their CCIE journey, but already has at least a CCNP-level knowledge of networking. Though a CCNP is not required, we strongly recommend at least 3-5 years of field experience prior to attempting a CCIE.

To prepare for this course, we recommend that you review our CCNP self-paced materials, which is available individually or in our All Access Pass. For further preparation, we recommend viewing the CCIE Routing & Switching Advanced Technologies Class.

This Bootcamp is structured to run 10-12 hours per day, with a one-hour lunch break. Each day will be a combination of lectures, instructor-led demonstrations, Q&A sessions, hands-on exercises, and frequent quizzes. Students will also have full access to their lab equipment throughout the evening to continue practicing on their own or as groups.

Each student will be equipped with his or her own virtual rack equipment. Each day, instructor lectures will be followed by applicable technology-focused labs. Upon completion of this class the student will have a solid foundation of knowledge and a keen understanding of what topics to focus on for the remainder of their studies.

Our lectures are dynamic and engaging, with a digital whiteboard system, and a significant amount of class time spent live on Cisco's IOS command line interface working with a full network topology. Each student will be equipped with his or her own complete rack of equipment.
