Live CCIE Training Bootcamps for CCIE Routing & Swtiching!

CCIE Routing & Switching 10-Day Bootcamp

Make your CCIE goal a reality! Join the thousands of students who passed their CCIE Lab exam after participating in an INE Bootcamp. Our entirely hands-on (slideshow-free!) Bootcamps are unmatched, offering 10 full days of in-depth, comprehensive CCIE lab exam training taught by expert instructors with real-world experience. Not only will you refine your skills and expand your knowledge of the blueprint technologies, you will also learn to change the way you think about problems and how to derive solutions. In addition to helping you pass your exam, our Bootcamps give you real-world practical knowledge to carry you past the CCIE lab and into everyday applications that you'll use as a CCIE in the field.

This Bootcamp is structured to run 10 to 12 hours per day, so students are expected to stay late into the evenings. The lectures and hands-on demonstrations run from 9am to 6pm or later with a one-hour lunch break. The hands-on labs continue into the evenings. Lectures are dynamic and engaging, using only Cisco's IOS and Catalyst 3560 documentation, a digital whiteboard, and a full CCIE rack of equipment. Each student will be equipped with his or her own rack of 6 ISR routers and 4 Catalyst switches. No slides are used in this Bootcamp! Click here to view the course outline »


Our Bootcamp students share their stories...

  • "I was lucky enough to be sent on the INE 2-week bootcamp in London hosted by Brian Dennis…. The bootcamp I cannot recommend highly enough, it was a true eye opener in some areas and I met some awesome guys that I am still in contact with now, having face time with your peers really is invaluable when studying it really is! I can't thank the guys over at INE enough, the ATC videos, the workbooks, the bootcamp, the one-on-one time to run through things makes them hands down the best training company I've used and would recommend them hands down without a thought."
    ~ David Rothera, CCIE #38338

  • "After checking my name and number with the CCIE verification tool I've finally realized that I passed the R&S lab in Brussels…. At first I'd like to thank Brian Dennis, Brian McGahan, Petr Lapukhov and all others at INE for creating awesome DRM-free (... rolling hand grenade ...) training materials and high quality blog posts. Besides using INE training materials I did attend a bootcamp in London in February 2012 with Brian Dennis. After that I also attended the TS bootcamp in October 2012 but this time via Internet. Those were the best IT trainings I've ever had. Since I paid for it out of my own pocket I can say that the money was well spent."
    ~ Jochen Bartl, CCIE #38954

  • "Very happy to join the INE CCIE family. First of all big thanks to the team INE for the excellent materials and support. I am a great fan of Brian McGahan. The way he elaborates even complex things is simply more than awesome. I would definitely recommend INE (have already done that many times) for CCIE training. Brilliant ATC, very detailed WBs and excellent Troubleshooting BC. All these played a very critical role for getting my magic number today!! Thank you so much once again and will come back to you guys for SP track after a few weeks. It’s party time now :D INE rocks. !! :) "
    ~ Sai Kalyan, CCIE #38252

  • "When I started my CCIE journey, I purchased the workbooks and felt they were invaluable for practice of different technologies. As my date got closer, I decided it would be imperative to sit in on a Bootcamp … Dave Smith did a great job of providing a necessary refresher course for me to obtain my CCIE. Thanks INE. "
    ~ Brian Adelson, CCIE #41068

  • "I'm pleased to report that I passed my RS lab in Brussels on the last testing day of 2012. A big thank you to the Brians and all at INE. Brian McGahan's videos were a great resource when starting out on the path to the lab, they were great for emphasizing the importance of the Doc CD - READ IT ALL. I attended Brian D's bootcamp in London this summer and it was fantastic, I would highly recommend this to everyone. Even if you are coming to the end of your studies, you will pick up something from the course. Brian has a very good way of explaining technologies."
    ~ Matt Ferbrache, CCIE #37879

  • "It's been a lot of on and off studying for a couple years for me. Once I took the INE Bootcamp I knew the CCIE was within reach and I just needed to commit the time. Dave Smith did a great job of deep diving into a lot of technologies without making me want to shoot myself. It was a great class that set me on track to achieving my number!"
    ~ Jason Rosner, CCIE #40750

  • "Passed my lab yesterday on my first attempt! Thanks Brian. You're the man!"
    ~ Aaron Warner, CCIE 39102
