Senior Network Designer at Routz
CCDE #20150017 & CCIE R&S #26557

After I attended Orhan Ergun’s CCDE course I passed the CCDE practical exam.I really enjoyed the course a lot.

Before I signed up I didn’t know what to expect but it’s for sure a great design course and preparation for the CCDE exam. Mainly because of the interaction with Orhan who is really an expert in explaining all the different technologies and making perfect designs out of them.

I passed the CCDE Practical exam and Orhan’s CCDE course was very important contributor to my success. I attended the CCDE course of Orhan Ergun in July and it was exactly what I needed, Orhan is taking the pain to break down the different technologies.

I attended Orhan’s April 201610 days CCDE Bootcamp. I am CCDE now !

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.

Your excellent CCDE materials and amazing Bootcamp helped me tremendously through my learning journey.Also thank you very much for being available whenever I have a design question or a complex design topics. I can’t compare your design skills and training with anyone in the industry.

I definitely strongly recommend you whoever wants to understand the network design in detail and wants to pass CCDE exam.

Reviews from the CCDEs who passed the CCDE Lab exam with this course

Hady Abdellah - CCDE# 2018::1/CCIE# 50137 - Senior Network Engineer at Qatar Hamad International Airport
Hi guys, I'm so happy that I passed the exam. I've already got my number CCDE 2018::1.

Thanks to Orhan for being the best CCDE instructor in the world. I highly recomend Orhan's CCDE Training and In-Depth-CCDE book.

Anyone who would like to learn network design or have the CCDE certificate should join his training.

He is really great mashallah, he's done many things for me. Thanks Orhan!

Abelardo Basurto - CCDE# 2018::6/CCIE# 12604 - NCE at Cisco Mexico
Hi everyone, I've just passed the CCDE Exam. My Number is CCDE 2018::6

I attended to Online CCDE Bootcamp of Orhan. I want to thank Orhan not only for the great book and bootcamp, but also for his commitment, availability and willingness to assist the CCDE community on our journey -at any time.

The Online Bootcamp of Orhan was the cherry on the cake after finishing the book.

For any one working on the CCDE, I highly encourage you to use his book and bootcamp

Jeff Patterson - CCDE# 2018::11
Hi Orhan

I wanted to pass along my appreciation for the outstanding training material. I used the online CCDE training provided by Orhan as well as the In-Depth-CCDE book and passed the exam in February 2018.

Thank you

Jeff Patterson

Jaroslaw Dobkowski - CCDE# 2017::53/CCIE#22260 (RS, SP, DC)
I passed CCDE exam on first attempt and Orhan’s bootcamp helped me switching mind-set from an engineer to designer.

Thanks again Orhan for your Instructor Led CCDE Bootcamp. .

Pramod K G - CCDE# 2017::5/CCIE# 49662
Thanks Orhan for your Instructor Led CCDE Bootcamp. It was very informative for CCDE Written and Lab preparations. Personally we used to discuss designs related to production networks (ISP,DC/Enterprise) & I must say he is technically sound in Network Design. I am impressed with your technology comparision charts when it comes to selection of routing protocols, VPN technology solutions etc.
I strongly recommend Orhan Ergun’s class if you want to pass the CCDE exam and learn network design.
Concepcion Diaz -CCIE RS, CCIE SP, CCIE DC, CCIE Col, CCIE Wir, CCIE Sec, CCDE 2017::19
The eleven days spent in Orhan bootcamp was invaluable in helping me build confidence and master my design concepts. After a long number of reading books and watch all the Cisco Live design sessions, this class was definitely the advantage i needed to take and pass my CCDE lab.
Thanks Orhan for your all supports.
Avinoash Gupta - CCIEx4, CCDE
Orhan's Bootcamp is really informative; I gain lots of knowledge from him. It helps to prepare the CCDE; Also in your work environment. I recommend my friend and colleagues to join Orhan once to get the great knowledge about Network Designing
Felix Nkansah - Chief Executive Officer at Red Mango CCDE #20160036, 2XCCIE
If you are considering studying for the coveted Cisco CCDE certification, make good use of the Cisco recommended reading list and CiscoLive videos focused on design. But your preparation won't be complete without a touch of Midas from the master CCDE trainer Orhan Ergun. He is the most complete training provider in the industry - Books, Blogs, Videos, Bootcamps, One-to-one chat, etc.Self Paced Course is a best offline CCDE resource !
Mazin Ahsan - Design Lead Engineer | Solutions Engineer | CCDE License # 20160030 | CCIE Licence # 23892
I passed the CCDE Practical Lab exam on November 17,2016 from supplications of elders and dedication from my Sensei Mr. Orhan Ergun I took different CCDE bootcamps in the past. Orhan has the most depth and expertise. You can discuss with him at an expert level on different technologies and he is focused. Both the bootcamp and his book helped me a lot in achieving the design skills to nail this beast. I would recommend taking his CCDE training to pass CCDE exam and learn the network design
Tahir Munir - Infrastructure Consultant at Accenture CCDE #20160031, 3XCCIE
I passed the CCDE exam on November 17,2016.Orhan's CCDE Live class and Self Paced training course helped me a lot to pass the both CCDE Written and Practical exams.Design comparison charts and videos will help you a lot in CCDE Practical exam. The quizzes in the self paced CCDE course is excellent resource for the CCDE Written exam.If you are studying for CCDE exam or want to learn network design,I strongly recommend you to take this course.
Michael "Zig"​ Zsiga II - Lead Technical Architect at ePlus Technology CCDE #20160032, 2XCCIE
I passed the #CCDE today! I used a lot of resources to be successful but I need to call out one specifically. Thanks Orhan Ergun for always being available at all hours to answer every question, to discuss every technology, and to work through my personality "issues" that I had throughout this process!! For all my friends venturing down the CCDE path Orhan is a great resource and friend to have!
Anders C. Petersen - Network Systems Engineer at Conscia A/S CCIE #42544 (SP) & CCDE #20160015
Orhan is forcing you to take off the implementation hat that most of us have been wearing for many years, instead he is providing a new fancy design hat, which makes you see and deal with the issues presented.
At the beginning of this CCDE course you many times are sitting thinking ‘I could solve this issue with some fancy trick/feature’, all because you keep thinking implementation. However as the course goes on Orhan is helping you to fill your new fancy design hat with all the important information not only for designing, meeting business requirements, but also dealing with the interaction of the protocols.
If you’re trying to get your head into a new hat, chasing the CCDE exam, or just wants to get on top with network design, I would go to Orhan today.
Hashiru Aminu 3xCCIE, CCDE #20160014 Technical Leader Services at Cisco Systems
I passed the most respectful Cisco exam CCDE on August 2016. I became first Nigerian CCDE and Orhan Ergun's CCDE Bootcamp was the most important resource in my success.If you want to nail down CCDE, you need to think as a designer. You need to change your mindset and understand all the technologies in the CCDE Blueprint.Orhan's resources cannot even comparable with the any CCDE Training provider in the industry.I would highly recommend the Orhan's CCDE Bootcamp for anyone who want to pass CCDE exams and understand the real life network design
