What is an Advanced Bootcamp?
Our CCIE Routing & Switching Advanced Bootcamp is seven 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.
Not only will you refine your skills and expand your knowledge of the blueprint technologies, you will also learn to change the way you think about problems and how to derive solutions. In addition to helping you pass your exam, our Bootcamps give you real-world practical knowledge to carry you past the CCIE lab and into everyday applications that you’ll use as a CCIE in the field.
Who should take it?
This Bootcamp is intended for those in the final stages of their CCIE studies who are preparing to take their CCIE Routing & Switching Lab Exam. There are no formal prerequisites, but instructors will expect students to have a foundational understanding of each of the blueprint technologies covered in this exam. For those preparing with INE’s other training material, you’ll want to have completed the INE’s CCIE Routing & Switching Advanced Technologies course. You will also need a working knowledge of Cisco’s IOS interface.
What can you expect?
This Bootcamp is structured to run 10-12 hours per day, typically starting at 8am, with a one-hour lunch break. Each day will be a combination of lectures, Q&A sessions, and hands-on exercises. Students will also have full access to their lab equipment throughout the evening to continue practicing on their own or as together with other students.
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.

Our Bootcamp students share their stories...
I was lucky enough to be sent on the INE bootcamp in London hosted by Brian Dennis…. The bootcamp I cannot recommend highly enough, it was a true eye opener in some areas and I met some awesome guys that I am still in contact with now, having face time with your peers really is invaluable when studying it really is! I can’t thank the guys over at INE enough, the ATC videos, the workbooks, the bootcamp, the one-on-one time to run through things makes them hands down the best training company I’ve used and would recommend them hands down without a thought.David Rothera/CCIE #38338
Very happy to join the INE CCIE family. First of all big thanks to the team INE for the excellent materials and support. I am a great fan of Brian McGahan. The way he elaborates even complex things is simply more than awesome. I would definitely recommend INE (have already done that many times) for CCIE training. Brilliant ATC, very detailed WBs and excellent Troubleshooting BC. All these played a very critical role for getting my magic number today!! Thank you so much once again and will come back to you guys for SP track after a few weeks. It’s party time now - INE rocks !!Sai Kalyan/CCIE #38252
