    Topic Guidelines for CCIE Exam

    Exams are the core of the CCIE program.Training is not the CCIE program objective.Rather, the focus is on identifying those experts capable of understanding and navigating the subtleties, intricacies and potential pitfalls inherent to end-to-end networking. To become certified as a CCIE you must pass BOTH a written qualification exam AND the corresponding hands-on lab exam in one of the CCIE tracks.
    Written Exams are two-hour, multiple choice, computer-based exams available at authorized testing centers worldwide.
    Lab exams are eight-hour, hands on exams that test the ability to configure and troubleshoot equipment and are offered at selected Cisco locations.
