CCIE Collaboration Certification and Training

Distinguish yourself as a leader in Collaboration technologies

Achieving CCIE Collaboration certification proves your skills with complex collaboration solutions. To earn CCIE Collaboration certification, you pass two exams: a qualifying exam that covers core collaboration technologies, and a hands-on lab exam that covers enterprise collaboration solutions through the entire network lifecycle, from designing and deploying to operating and optimizing.

What's new

Your exam, your way. The CCIE BYOD Mobile Lab is here!

The CCIE Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) lab allows CCIE exam candidates to take the lab, using their own devices (laptop, monitor, keyboard, mouse), at expanded locations and dates. The BYOD Mobile Lab exam fee is $1600 USD, a $300 USD savings compares to the $1900 USD Cisco kit mobile lab exam fee. The CCIE BYOD Mobile Lab is open for registration.
