CIERS2 – Cisco Expert-Level Training for CCIE Routing and Switching Advanced Workshop 2 v5.0

Course Details
Code: 5099
Tuition (USD): $4,995.00 • Classroom (5 days)
This course includes Cisco Training Exclusives

This Boot Camp-style class is the sequel to CIERS1 and is designed to provide practice in a timed setting for completing multiple issue spotting and analysis with assessed labs that are equivalent in difficulty to the actual CCIE R&S v5.0 practical lab exam. Each day, you will complete an assessed lab, and then the instructor will provide an in-depth review of the lab solution.

This intense class is approximately 80% hands-on and 20% lecture, and you should be prepared to work late into the night. You will have access to all labs including configurations, the answer key, the Master Answer Key configurations, and graded reports for each lab in your portal so you can review the material as often as you wish.

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.

  • This class is just one part the Cisco 360 Learning Program for CCIE, an immersive and comprehensive educational suite designed to build expert-level skills, not merely deliver a passing CCIE exam score.
  • The Cisco 360 program has exclusive rights to run all labs on top of IOS over Linux (IOL). These are the same servers, same look and feel as the actual lab.

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.
