Certification Update Announced
On December 4, 2013, Cisco announced that the CCIE Routing and Switching (R&S) exam curriculum will be revised from version 4.0 to version 5.0. Cisco continually assesses and validates the technical expertise of network engineers working in global enterprise environments. The revision reflects both changes in technology and the evolution of job roles.
The last day to test for both the Written exam v4.0 (350-001) and Lab exam v4.0 will be June 3, 2014. The CCIE R&S Written and Lab exam v5.0 will be available for testing on June 4, 2014. This announcement provides a six-month notice to candidates allowing them time to schedule and pass Written and Lab exams v4.0.
To achieve CCIE certification, you must first pass a written qualification exam. After you pass the written exam, you qualify to schedule and take the corresponding, one-day lab exam on-site at a Cisco CCIE lab. The hands-on lab exam emphasizes Cisco equipment command knowledge and network troubleshooting skills.
