CCIE Lab Exam

Step One: CCIE Wireless Written Exam

You must pass the two-hour, written qualification exam covering concepts and equipment commands before you are eligible to schedule the lab exam.

Step Two: CCIE Wireless Lab Exam

The eight-hour lab exam confirms that you have the job skills and technical knowledge required of a wireless expert-level network professional. You must pass the lab within three years of passing the written to achieve certification. Your first lab attempt must be made within 18 months.


CCIEs are required to recertify every two years.

To recertify you can:

  • Earn the required credits through the Cisco Continuing Education Program, or
  • Pass any current CCIE Written Exam OR CCIE Lab Exam, or
  • Pass the current CCDE Written Exam OR current CCDE Practical Exam, or
  • Pass the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) interview AND the CCAr board review to extend lower certifications.

If you do not complete your recertification before the deadlines, your CCIE certification will be suspended and you and your employer will lose the benefits associated with your expert status. You then have one year to reinstate your CCIE status before you become inactive and must begin the certification process all over again.
