Welcome, Paul!

I wish you good luck studying for CCIE (Enterprise?). It’s a long journey but worth it. If you need help, you know where to find us.


Just a quick question will the CCIE course here help prepare me for the written exam as well or is this more suited for the lab?

Hello Paul

Allow me to welcome you to the site as well! Great to have you with us.

The CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure course on the site focuses on the lab exam. The written exam for CCIE is actually the 350-401 ENCOR exam, which is considered qualifying exam for the CCIE lab. This must first be passed before you can do the lab exam. This is detailed in Cisco’s related CCIE informational page. The ENCOR material can be found in the CCNP ENCOR course.

So if you’re going for the CCIE Enterprise certification, you’ll have to go through the ENCOR material for the qualifying exam, and the CCIE material for the lab exam. There is some overlap between these two courses, but for the most part, that material will get you through.

I hope this has been helpful!
