Cisco : CCIE 360 Routing and Switching Advanced Workshop 2


Velisa Africa is the official Global Knowledge partner in Sub-Saharan Africa. Course details : http://www.globalknowledge.ae/courses/cisco/routing_and_switching/ciers2.html

CIERS-2 provides an intensive, hands-on experience that includes four 8-hour Cisco CCIE-level labs and one 4-hour CCIE-style lab. Delegates perform five Performance Assessment Labs on five separate days, establishing a performance trend that allows the learners to determine their level of readiness to attempt the actual Cisco CCIE Routing and Switching lab.

After performing each of the five Performance Assessment Labs that are delivered in this course, learners receive detailed feedback on each section of the lab. This feedback includes a web-linked Score Card.

Delegates will be able to refine their end-to-end test-taking strategies and methods by applying these strategies and methods to five labs on five consecutive days. This approach helps to refine both time and stress-management techniques. Delegates will need to bring their own laptops to this class as Cisco will provide the courseware electronically. Delegates should expect the days to be long.

Students booking this workshop as a standalone product, not bundled with e-learning will also receive access to preassessment lab, Workbook (20 labs) Reference Library 200 hours virtual rack rental

This course is designed for:

  • Anyone who is in the final phase of preparation for the Cisco CCIE® Routing and Switching lab exam and who is within three to six weeks of the lab date.

Recommended as preparation for:

The Cisco CCIE Practical Exam.

The CCIE lab exam is an eight-hour, hands-on exam which requires you to configure and troubleshoot a series of complex networks to given specifications. Knowledge of troubleshooting is an important skill and candidates are expected to diagnose and solve issues as part of the CCIE lab exam. You will not configure end-user systems, but are responsible for all devices residing in the network (hubs, etc.). Point values and testing criteria are provided.

Follow on Courses

The following courses and program components are recommended for further study:

  • CCIE 360 R&S Practice Labs
  • CCIE 360 R&S Exercise Workbook

Further Information

Certification candidates are expected to have an in-depth understanding of the topics in the exam blueprints and are strongly encouraged to have three to five years of job experience before attempting certification.

This class is just one part of the Cisco CCIE 360 Learning Program for Routing and Switching ,an immersive and comprehensive educational suite designed to build expert-level skills, not merely deliver a passing CCIE exam score.

We strongly recommend that you take CIERS1 before attending CIERS2. We also recommend that you take this class three to six weeks prior to your CCIE lab exam.
