Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) Routing & Switching certifies the expert-level skills required of network engineers to plan, prepare, operate, monitor and troubleshoot a complex, converged network infrastructure. Professionals who achieve Cisco CCIE certification have demonstrated expert network engineering skills and mastery of Cisco products and solutions.

You must pass the two-hour, written qualification exam that covers networking topics such as IP, IP routing, bridging and switch-related technologies as well as some equipment commands before you are eligible to schedule the lab exam.

The eight-hour, hands-on lab exam tests your ability to configure actual equipment and troubleshoot the network in a timed test situation. You must pass the lab exam within three years of passing the written exam to achieve certification, and your first lab attempt must be made within 18 months.
