Description

The Cisco Expert-Level Training for CCIE Routing and Switching Advanced Workshop 2 (CIERS2) v5.0 course teaches learners how to use an expert-level, problem-solving process including the Options Analysis method to support complex network technologies and topologies. This course is part of a blended learning curriculum that supports expert-level preparation in routing and switching. This course has been updated to reflect the recent changes in the Cisco CCIE R&S lab that is implemented in the version 5.0 blueprint.
CIERS2 Workshop 2 is approximately 20 percent lecture and 80 percent hands-on labs, designed according to a set of formal learning objectives. The workshop also includes five 8-hour performance assessments with troubleshooting and configurations sections each, which are graded and returned with interactive Mentor Guide feedback. Performance assessments are delivered on IOS on Linux (IOL) platform.
