Recommended Roadmap


It is recommended to start with single-technology labs in the following order:

  • Data Link – SWITCH, WAN
  • Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) – EIGRP, OSPF, RIP, Multicast
  • Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP) – BGP, MPLS, VPN
  • Infrastructure - Security, Services

To obtain a solid understanding of technology, students may repeat the lab(s) multiple times as long as there is a sufficient number of rack hours. It is best to complete all single-technology labs before moving on to the multi-topic labs.


Multi-topic labs include Configuration, Diagnostic and Troubleshooting labs at the CCIE level of complexity. The order of performing the multi-topic labs section is not critical. Students may select a lab type based on background and comfort level with a certain type of CCIE skills.


It is also recommended to complete all multi-topic labs before moving on to the Cisco Expert-Level Training for CCIE Routing & Switching workbook labs or any of the assessment labs.
