CIERS1 - CCIE 360 R&S Prep Boot Camp 1

Course Description/Agenda

This intensive Boot Camp-style course is designed to help CCIE Routing & Switching candidates determine exactly where they are in their process of preparing for the CCIE R&S v4.0 practical exam and to fill technology gaps through lecture and labs.

The class is approximately 60% lecture and 40% hands-on labs, with extended hours of up to 13 hours per day. Upon completion of the technology lecture that includes best practices for applying and troubleshooting the technology, you will complete labs based on that technology. At the end of the class, you will perform two graded CCIE-level practice labs: a troubleshooting lab and a configuration lab.

Additionally, you will learn how to develop study plans and how to develop and use checklists and decision diagrams to formulate the mindset needed to pass the CCIE lab. With this information stored in your online portal, you can review the material covered in the CIERS1 class as frequently as you wish.

Note: To participate in this course and access your Cisco 360 portal and remote labs, it is highly recommended that you bring the laptop associated with your Cisco 360 Learning Program for CCIE account.
