Course Overview


The Engineering Cisco Meraki Solutions Part 1 (ECMS1) course is an introductory course that equips you with the knowledge and skills to confidently operate Cisco Meraki solutions as a unified management system of an entire network from a centralized dashboard.

Through a full day of instruction including live demos and guided lab practice, you will learn how to implement core configurations for a full stack solution in the Meraki Dashboard and leverage essential Meraki Dashboard tools to enforce device security policies, deploy software and apps, and perform remote, live troubleshooting on managed devices.

This is the first of two courses that prepare you to take the Cisco Meraki Solutions Specialist certification exam.
