Lab and Practical Exam Registration

The following information is applicable to all CCIE Lab and Practical Exams.

Once you have passed the CCIE written exam, you are eligible to schedule your CCIE lab and practical exam. Passing scores on written exams are automatically downloaded from testing vendors, but may not appear immediately. We suggest you wait ten days after your written exam before attempting to schedule the lab.

 

You will need the following to schedule your lab exam:

  • Valid Cisco user account

  • Identification number you used to register for your written exam (in the U.S. and Canada the ID number is generally your Social Security or Social Insurance number. In other regions, the testing vendor assigns the number.)

  • Date of your passing written exam

  • Passing score on written exam

Cost

CCIE Lab and and Practical Exam(s) are $1,500 USD per attempt, not including travel and lodging expenses.  Costs may vary due to exchange rates and local taxes. You are responsible for any fees your financial institution may charge to complete the payment transaction.

 

Full payment for lab exams must be made 90 days before the exam date to hold your reservation. Exams for which payment is not received by the payment due date will be automatically dropped from the lab exam schedule. You can verify the payment due date on an exam you have scheduled by logging in and viewing your Certification Status. Click here to Pay for a Lab or Practical Exam Online. requires Login

 

Please Note:

  • Only one email notice is sent as a payment reminder

  • If your exam is dropped due to non-payment, you will need to reschedule your lab exam date.

  • You may book an exam for a date less than 90 days away, if you complete payment on the day you book the exam.

  • Credit card payments will be processed on the payment due date, exactly 90 days prior to the scheduled lab date, as will invoices for all payment types. No invoices will be generated before the lab exam due date.
