Cisco has just formally announced a set of updates regarding the CCIE-level certifications of its certification track.
The Cisco 360 Learning Program for CCIE Routing and Switching designed to accompany the process of preparing candidates for the CCIE Routing and Switching certification.
The Program begins with a 4-hour pre-assessment that defines the acceptance or not of the candidate within the Program. The basic idea is to allow companies that apply for CCIE certification technicians to select the best qualified technicians for the process.
Once the candidate qualifies for the Cisco 360 Program, a process of practical workshops, evaluations and mentoring begins that allow them to acquire the necessary knowledge and track their progress through an online system called the Learning Management System.
This new Program will be available exclusively through Learning Partners carefully selected and trained by Cisco to participate in this Program that is unprecedented to date.
