INE’s CCNP Routing & Switching Bootcamp should be considered an essential learning tool for any aspiring CCNP candidate. Our seven-day live, onsite bootcamp will provide you with an unparalleled training opportunity to fine tune your knowledge and gain valuable exam preparation skills.
Our Bootcamp provides a combination of lectures, whiteboards, instructor demonstrations, hands-on labs, and frequent quizzes to test your understanding of materials learned. You will not only learn about essential CCNP ROUTE and SWITCH technologies, but will also be exposed to the various ways these technologies are implemented in real-world networks.
During the course of the bootcamp, you will learn about VTP, Switching Security, First-Hop Redundancy Protocols (FHRP), Route Filtering and Summarization, IGP Route Redistribution, BGP implementation, and more. The primary emphasis of this Bootcamp is coverage of the most important topics you’re likely to be tested upon in your CCNP ROUTE and SWITCH exams. You’ll also be given the opportunity to work on after-hours TSHOOT-style labs.
In order to obtain the full benefit of this Bootcamp, it is imperative that you can pass INE’s online CCNA Routing & Switching Practice exam with a score of 85% or higher over multiple attempts. Also, to be best prepared for the bootcamp, we suggest that you view the CCNP Routing & Switching Technologies video course and work through as much as the self-paced CCNP R&S training materials as possible. The more prepared you are for the class the more you will take from it. This bootcamp is not designed to be your only form of exam preparation--you will need to have a familiarity with the exam topics in order to build on your existing knowledge throughout the bootcamp. If you have any questions about the suggested preparation necessary prior to the bootcamp, please reach out to one of our Training Specialists.
These Bootcamps are structured to run 10 hours per day, typically starting at 9am, with a one-hour lunch break. Materials used and provided for these classes include Cisco’s IOS and Catalyst 3560 documentation, a digital whiteboard, and a full CCNP rack of equipment. Each student will be equipped with his or her own rack of equipment.

I wanted to personally send a big thank you for allowing Keith Bogart to be a part of the INE team and a big part of my CCNP preparation experience. I recently attended his CCNP Bootcamp, and I must admit that it has prepared me to take my CCNP in confidence. Of course, I still have a few things I need to brush up on, but I’m not shaking in my boots anymore. I wanted to take the time to commend Keith on his teaching style and patience. The class had a varying degree of skill sets, from those just trying to get a grasp of what they were looking at for the CCNP, to those who felt almost ready to take the test. Keith’s teaching style appealed to both parties in my opinion. I wish that the bootcamp was 10 days, however with that time frame I don’t know if I would have been able to get off of work to attend. For the price paid, and the knowledge received, I feel like I got the better end of the deal. I feel like I ripped you guys off! (No take backs!) So without much gushing and admiration for Keith, I’d like to personally thank you for finding and bringing him to the INE team. He presents items in a clear and concise manner and doesn’t get upset if he has to repeat himself on a difficult topic. Oh, and did I forget to mention the hand gestures? If there is a concept you don’t fully understand, you can bet that you will get it after he explains it with his analogies and hand gestures!Christopher Christian / CCNP Bootcamp Attendee
I would like to just take a moment to say that I enjoyed this class. The instructor (Keith Bogart) was very knowable and took the time that was required to go over topics that people had questions about. For me the class was great because I had a good understanding of the protocols that would be discussed but had never had the chance to see them work. The class addressed this for me and allowed me to make mistakes and learn to fix them. If I had a question or got stuck on parts I could either ask for some assistance or wait until we went through the lab together. Either way I learned were my problems were and what I was lacking. To have a course run 7 days with routing and switching is a lot to bargain for. I believe that Keith would have taught anything that was put in front of him. He went into the most important parts of the route curriculum seeing he only had 4 days to teach it. Switch we covered very well. There were a couple topics we didn’t touch on but I believe they were less important and easier concepts then what we went through in class.Daniel Oswalt / CCNP Bootcamp Attendee
