Learn more about CCIE certification from Cisco Systems.


There are no prerequisites for CCIE certification, but at least three years of practical experience implementing, deploying, operating, and troubleshooting complex Cisco networks is recommended. You will also need a familiarity with Cisco hardware and Cisco networking solutions, extensive knowledge of LAN and WAN technologies, and an in-depth understanding of the protocols used on routers, switches, bridges, and security devices.


To achieve CCIE certification, you must first pass a written qualification exam. After you pass the written exam, you qualify to schedule and take the corresponding, one-day lab exam on-site at a Cisco CCIE lab. The hands-on lab exam emphasizes Cisco equipment command knowledge and network troubleshooting skills.
