My February 2017 CCDE class is now over. The duration of the course was for 11 days and as usual it started with lots of advanced technology lessons. All the critical CCDE exam topics (IGP, BGP , MPLS and the other technologies) were covered in detail from the design point of view.
A minimum of 4 hours was spent each day. We had 50+ hours training this time; which helped and engaged the participants during the training. For example, many existing CCDE network engineers shared the CCDE Practical scenarios, CCDE exam tips and tricks and their strategies with the students.
Since I adjust and expand my course outline continuously; each time, students learn more about network design. There were many CCDE Practical Scenarios at the February class and those scenarios definitely will help the attendees in the CCDE Practical exam.
By the way, the next CCDE Practical exam is on 22 February 2017, in 2 days’ time!
I wish all the attendees including my students ‘good luck’ in the upcoming CCDE practical exam. Looking forward to share their feedbacks and the success stories in the future posts.

What Martin says about Orhan Ergun CCDE class
I attended Orhan’s April 2016 10 days CCDE Bootcamp.
You can tell Orhan has a great deal of experience, it really comes through when he presents his design case studies and the CCDE Practical scenarios– if you are approaching the end of your CCDE journey this is a good place to stop by and put it all together.
Thanks Orhan for everything.
I would like to inform all my readers that I have commenced the CCDE Practical Lab Exam Scenarios Bootcamp.
In the CCDE Practical Lab Scenarios Bootcamp, I will share the CCDE Practical Lab scenarios. Four Lab Scenarios will be covered.Of course, these scenarios depict some of the questions in the current CCDE practical exams. They will help you to understand the exam structure, to approach the questions and to pass the exam.

Come and learn the network design from the best !
I have just decided to schedule my next online class for the February 2016 CCDE Practical exam preparation because of three reasons. One is the high level of demand for my early CCDE bootcamps; the other is the overwhelming number of students pursuing the CCDE; the last is the high numbers of students who passed the exam from my class.
Click here for an overview of the students who have passed the latest (October 2015 ) CCDE Practical exam.
This class will not only include an overview of the technology concepts needed to pass the exam but also include several mini and full design scenario that mimic the structure of the CCDE lab exam.
I am very proud to announce that Daniel Lardeux, Johnny Britt and Mohammad Haddad passed the CCDE Practical exam yesterday and they joined the CCDE Club, which is one of the most respected IT certifications.
Their CCDE numbers will arrive in a couple of days.
See the existing Global List of the CCDEs, their companies and numbers here. If you are not in the list, have changed your company or want to be on the list, contact me.
Daniel and Mohammad joined my July class and Johnny used the CCDE Practical preparation bundle.
I would like to stress that four guys from my class or using my preparation resources attempted the November 2015 CCDE Practical exam and three of them passed! A 75% success rate is not a small thing for this certification.
They all glad that they have not only learned the CCDE-related topics but also the real life network design.
CCDE Practical Self Study Materials are available now !
Update : This materials are more than a year old. New workbook will release by July 15th 2016 as hard copy only. Old materials only cover 30% of the new book. Also videos are not available for download anymore, only can be accessible with subscription. Please click here for subscription.
Advanced Technologies Workbook
Update : New book has 50+ Case Studies, 20+ Comparison Charts , 10 Design Quizzes and Answers , as well as full length CCDE Practical Scenario.
Old Book : Design advices from a practical standpoint , more than 10 case studies and 1 CCDE practical sample scenario. You will have 1 year free update.
I am glad to announce that Russ White and I have been preparing a CCDE Practical Exam ( Lab Exam ) Scenario. This is the most realistic scenario available anywhere. Why? Because it is not only prepared by a CCDE but also by one of the exam founders!
Disclosure : This is not asked in the CCDE exam , but the structure and idea is very similar to what would be found in the exam.
Russ White is one of the CCDE exam founders and the Author of Optimal Routing Design, Practical BGP, Advanced IP Network Design, and many other network design and architecture books. Russ and I have put much effort into preparing this scenario.
There are already more than 20 people in the class and multiple people will attend the CCDE Exam in August. I am sure this scenario will be an excellent resource for the CCDE candidates.
If you want to be a good network designer as well as a CCDE, it is not enough to understand the technologies alone, but you also need to understand how business intersects with those technologies.
You need to understand how business drives the network, and how the network can drive the business.
How can you analyse the network ? How can you prepare an architecture ? What are the attributes of good design? What are the most important tradeoffs? All of this will be discussed and more!
This is the ONLY CCDE Design class offered online. Travel and time away from home is null thus saving you not only time but money!
UPDATE: THE JULY CLASS IS FULL!
