So you need to turn out to be one of many elite CCIEs (Cisco Certified Internetwork Engineer). This certification is extremely reputed worldwide and there are solely roughly 100,000 CCIEs in the world. I’ve recognized folks with simply a CCIE in California, USA begin at an annual wage of $80,000 a yr with no expertise. CCIEs with up to ten years of expertise earn roughly $200,000 or extra a yr. The certification is taken into account a skilled diploma in networks and it’s a ticket to a vivid future in high-paying profession. The excellent news is, you don’t want a faculty diploma to turn out to be a CCIE, and the rewards are like having a Computer Science diploma from one of many elite faculties in the USA.
Getting began will be overwhelming, however going over the CCIE blueprint that Cisco affords on-line will reply your entire questions. The blueprint gives a record of subjects to examine and offers you prompt books to learn. You will get a full record of Cisco supplies to examine and a record of Cisco tools they use to examine for the lab.
Let’s get began on changing into a CCIE with little or no expertise. The very first step is to get your Cisco Certified Network Associate CCNA certification check quantity 640-802. This is the primary prerequisite earlier than you’ll be able to take the CCIE lab check. I like to recommend studying the Cisco Certified Network Associate examine information by Todd Lammle and buy the CCIE Lab workbooks from Ipexpert.com. I’ve used these books in the previous with a lot success. You can even want to buy a CCNA simulator to observe for the check and a few CCNA and CCIE written mind dumps; you’ll find these by looking on-line. CCIE written check quantity 350-001 is the ultimate step earlier than taking the lab and there are many mind dumps on line to allow you to move this check in a very quick time.
Since you might be on the nice journey of acquiring the elite CCIE, you need to say goodbye to your social life and full the CCNA check inside a week and the CCIE written check the second week. This is what Cisco coaching companions educate in the one week coaching class and that is what I did to move the check.
After step one, you need to have a good grasp on understanding Cisco tools and all these particular IT protocols you’ve got to know to have the option to move the CCIE check. The subsequent step is to give attention to the CCIE lab check by studying the CCIE blueprint that’s situated on the Cisco web page. By now the lab check is eight hours lengthy and all fingers on. The solely manner you’re going to move this lab with little or no expertise is to construct your individual residence lab. If you might be on a tight price range, then my suggestion is a minimal of 5 routers and 1 swap. The most cost-effective you’ll be able to go is the Cisco 2610 collection operating native IOS firewall. I’ve seen Cisco 2610 on eBay priced lower than $200. You can save a lot of cash by not shopping for routers with Fast Ethernet connections or interfaces, simply stick with the 2610 collection.
OK, your entire tools is in place, and all you’ve got to do is begin practising for the lab. I like to recommend the lab workbooks from Ipexpert. I’ve discovered these workbooks simple to perceive and every little thing they educate just about follows what goes to be on the precise CCIE lab check. Obviously, whenever you observe together with your workbooks, you will need to perceive why you might be configuring the tools this manner. I’ve discovered it useful to be a part of a couple of CCIE communities. There are a lot of CCIE candidates on the market and you’ll study to examine collectively. I’ve discovered most of my questions and solutions from these communities. Once you full all workbooks from Ipexpert, you just about simply have to work in your pace if you find yourself configuring your routers. Get use to the lab stream and take a look at to improve your pace, observe this till you’ll be able to full all workbooks in lower than 4 hours. Once you accomplish this then you might be prepared for the lab. Good luck, be affected person, and you may be one of many elite CCIEs.
