What to expect in the exam

The 8 hours practical exam will assess candidate's skills through the entire network lifecycle of designing, deploying, operating and optimizing complex network scenarios. The exam consists out of 2 modules that are fixed in time and will be delivered in a fixed sequence:


What is the passing score for CCIE Security v6.0 Lab Exam?

Each module has both a minimum score and a pass score. Both minimum and pass scores are set on a per-module basis, based upon exam difficulty level.

  • The pass score corresponds with expert level competence
  • The minimum score is the absolute minimum score expected from an expert level candidate

To pass the exam, candidates need to score higher than the aggregated pass score of both modules and score higher than the minimum score set on each of the modules individually

If candidates score less than the overall aggregated pass score of both modules OR score less than the minimum score set on 1 (or more) of the individual modules, they will fail the exam. Upon passing the exam, candidates will not be provided any additional score details.

Candidates that fail the exam will be given a score report, indicating what module(s) they passed or failed. Additionally, candidates will be provided cumulative scoring percentages on a per domain level, across both modules.

Frequently Asked Question

You need to pass one core exam (Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies SCOR 300-701) and the corresponding lab exam CCIE Security v6.0 to achieve your CCIE Security certificate.

Yes. The same technology core exam will serve as the core exam for the CCNP and CCIE certification.

The CCIE Security program designed to cover core technology areas and validate end-to-end lifecycle skills in complex security technologies and solutions from planning and design to operating and optimizing. Automation and programmability aspects are an integral part of the CCIE Security blueprint.

You can select weekdays or weekend batches as per your convenience. You can opt for an onsite or online course. Regular weekday (Mon – Fri) classroom training takes 8 weeks or 120 hours while Weekend (Sat-Sun) classroom training takes 2 months or 120 hours.

We provide a lab training facility in Asia with 24×7 Lab access with rack and lab administrator guide along with CCIE certified faculties. Additionally, we offer great value for money to all our candidates through Personality development sessions. We are the best CCIE training institute in Mumbai.

Yes. Please refer to the Training Plan section or get in touch with Octa Networks team for further details.

Following are some of the roles offered to CCIE Security candidates:

  • Network Engineer
  • Senior Network Engineer
  • Network Administrator
  • Network Security Engineer
  • Network Security Administrator
  • Network Security Specialist

CCIE certificates are valid for 36 months. After these initial 36-months CCIEs have the flexibility and option to recertify using one of the options below before the certification expiration date:

  • Through the Cisco Continuing Education Program only :

Earn the required 120 CE credits, or

  • Thorough Examination and Continuing Education :

1. Pass one technology core exam and earn 40 CE credits or

2. Pass any two professional concentration exams and earn 40 CE credits or

3. Pass any one professional concentration exam and earn 80 CE credits

  • Examination Only :

1. Pass any one expert-level certification exam or

2. Pass any one CCIE lab exam or

3. Pass any three professional concentration exams or

4. Pass one technology core exam and pass anyone professional concentration exam. (This is also a CCNP certification if done in the same track.)

You need to pass one core exam and the corresponding lab in the same technology to achieve your CCIE certificate.

Yes. The same technology core exam will serve as the core exam for the CCNP and CCIE certification in the same track.

Once you clear the technology core exam (SCOR 300-701), you can clear the CCIE lab exam within 3 years of passing the qualifying technology core exam. Plus if you can pass the corresponding technology concentration exam, you will get CCNP certificate too.

Having a CCNA or CCNP certificate is not necessary before appearing for the CCIE technology core exam and the corresponding lab exam. You can directly appear for the technology core exam and then attempt the CCIE lab after clearing the technology core exam provided necessary concepts and knowledge of the exam topics are understood clearly.

All the current certificates will be valid for the full three years from the date of certification. After 24th Feb 2020, you will get the new corresponding certificate too which will have the same validity as that of your original certificate. For example, if you have an active CCIE Wireless v3.1 on Feb 24th, 2020, you will be granted the new CCIE Enterprise Wireless v1.0 certification. The important thing to note here is that when you are granted the updated certification, your certification validity will remain unchanged.

If you clear the lab exam on or before 23rd Feb 2020 or you are an active CCIE, your suspended year will be converted to an active year. For example, if your active CCIE would have been suspended beginning April 21st, 2020, you will have your status activated until April 21st, 2021.

Yes, the same written exam serves as the core exam for CCNP certification and CCIE certification.

The new CCIE lab exams will be available April 27, 2020.

Learners will be able to choose between wireless and infrastructure lab exams within the Enterprise track. All other CCIE lab exams are standardized to the technology track, including Security, Service Provider, Security and Security.

Yes, you are required to pass the technology core exam before you take the lab exam.

The CCIE lab exam is being updated in order to assess candidates’ skills through the entire adoption lifecycle of designing, deploying, operating and optimizing complex network scenarios. The lab format has changed to assess these skills end-to-end.

The CCIE lab format will change to assess candidates’ skills through the entire adoption lifecycle of designing, deploying, operating, and optimizing complex network scenarios. The lab exam consists of 2 modules that are fixed in time and will be delivered in a fixed sequence:

• Module 1: Design (3 hours)

• Module 2: Deploy, Operate and Optimize (5 hours)

Automation and Network Programmability skills are an integral part of both modules.

A CCIE or CCIE Emeritus that maintains their active or Emeritus status for 20 years has the option to choose a lifetime Emeritus status with no fee. For more information on the CCIE Lifetime Emeritus Benefit, please visit https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/training-events/trainingcertifications/certifications/expert/ccie-program/emeritus.html.

Yes. If you passed exams prior to the migration that are equivalent to a technology core exam, you have three years from the date you last passed a technology core equivalent exam to take the CCIE lab in that same track. After three years have lapsed, you must pass the technology core exam again in a given track to be able to take the CCIE lab in that track. For example, an individual with an active CCNP Routing & Switching certification who last recertified their CCNP on September 23, 2019 can take the CCIE Enterprise lab up until September 24, 2022. An individual who obtained their CCNP Routing & Switching certification on February 25, 2017 will have until February 26, 2020 to take the CCIE Enterprise lab. An individual that has passed both ROUTE (300-101) and SWITCH (300-115) exams on September 23, 2019 will have until September 24, 2022 to take the CCIE Enterprise lab.
