INE's CCNP Routing & Switching Bootcamp should be considered an essential learning tool for any aspiring CCNP candidate. Our seven-day live, onsite Bootcamp (as well as our Live Online Bootcamp) will provide you with an unparalleled training opportunity to fine tune your knowledge and gain valuable exam preparation skills.
Our Bootcamp provides a combination of lectures, whiteboards, instructor demonstrations, hands-on labs, and frequent quizzes to test your understanding of materials learned. You will not only learn about essential CCNP ROUTE and SWITCH technologies, but will also be exposed to the various ways these technologies are implemented in real-world networks.
During the Bootcamp, you will learn about VTP, Switching Security, First-Hop Redundancy Protocols (FHRP), Route Filtering and Summarization, IGP Route Redistribution, BGP implementation, and more. The primary emphasis of this Bootcamp is coverage of the most important topics you're likely to be tested upon in your CCNP ROUTE and SWITCH exams. You'll also be given the opportunity to work on after-hours TSHOOT-style labs.
These Bootcamps are structured to run 10 hours per day, typically starting at 9am, with a one-hour lunch break. Materials used and provided for these classes include Cisco's IOS and Catalyst 3560 documentation, a digital whiteboard, and a full CCNP rack of equipment. Each student will be equipped with his or her own rack of equipment.
What does it mean to audit a Bootcamp?
Classes that are sold out due to rack limitations will offer an audit option. This option will include all the same access to the live online class and materials that a regular seat offers, the only difference being you will not have rack access while in class. Instead, you will be offered access to the rack during a different week that meets with your scheduling needs. For questions regarding bootcamp audits, please reach out to our training advisors at 877-224-8987.

Minimum Preparation Required
In order to obtain the full benefit of this Bootcamp, it is imperative that you have your CCNA certification and can pass INE's online CCNA Routing & Switching Practice exam with a score of 85% or higher over multiple attempts. Also, to be best prepared for the Bootcamp, we suggest that you view the CCNP Routing & Switching Technologies video course for either the ROUTE or SWITCH topics and the corresponding ROUTE or SWITCH workbook. To be better prepared you may go through the full course and both workbooks. Prior to attending you must feel confident in either ROUTE or SWITCH technologies and feel that you are nearly ready for one of those two exams. While in class you will finish your studies for the one exam and begin your studies for the other.
The more prepared you are for the class, the more you will take from it. This Bootcamp is not designed to be your only form of exam preparation--you will need to have a familiarity with the exam topics in order to build on your existing knowledge throughout the Bootcamp. If you have any questions about the suggested preparation necessary prior to the Bootcamp, please reach out to one of our Training Specialists.
Bootcamp Reseat Policy
The re-seat/re-take terms in place at the time of purchase will apply to your case. Re-seats are available for bootcamps of the same type, or for bootcamps that have replaced the course you originally attended. You must attend your initial bootcamp before you can register for a re-seat. You may only register for one re-seat at a time and must attend the re-seat session before scheduling another re-seat. Students may schedule a re-seat for any upcoming bootcamp date, excluding those marked “Sold Out”. Any outstanding fees, including rescheduling fees, must be paid before you can register for a re-seat. You must agree to the re-seat terms before you may register.
Effective November 1, 2017, bootcamp students may purchase re-seats at a reduced rate for two years from the date that you attended your original class. At the close of the two-year timeframe, bootcamp students have the option to purchase two more years of discounted re-seats. Re-seat fees are applicable for all tracks. Re-seat fees for bootcamps 6 days or longer are $1000 per re-take. For bootcamps of 5 days or less, the cost is $500 each time you wish to re-sit. In addition to the re-seat fee, if you received a discount on your original purchase, you must pay the difference between list price at the time of purchase and the discounted rate received. If any promotional items (i.e. free travel vouchers, electronic devices, etc.) were included with your bootcamp purchase, you will be required to pay the cost of that item (up to $500) in addition to the re-seat fee. Requests for re-seats after your two-year timeframe will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
Reseat policy is subject to change at any time at the discretion of INE.
Bootcamp Payment Plans
We offer 2 month, 3 month, and 4 month payment plans for our bootcamp classes. A 5% processing fee will be collected with the first payment of all payment plans. Any exceptions are at the sole discretion of our billing team.
This is not a credit or financing plan and no interest charges are incurred from INE, except for the initial 5% processing fee.
For example, if you place an order for $4,000 and choose a 4-month payment plan, your initial payment would be $1,000 plus the 5% processing fee of $200, for a total of $1,200. The remaining $3,000 order balance will be processed automatically by INE over the next 3 months, at $1,000 per month.
With your first payment, you will receive access to your All Access Pass so you can begin watching the self-paced videos to prepare for your bootcamp.
Payment plans require you to use a debit/credit card. We accept the following debit/credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. No other payment methods are accepted for payment plan orders.
Your bootcamp must be paid in full prior to the class start date.

Any refund request received within 45 days of your scheduled instructor-led bootcamp purchased for a specific date will incur additional cancellation fees. Cancellation fees will be based on a percentage of the price that you paid for your bootcamp. Any self-paced materials that came with your order cannot be refunded; the value of these materials and any promotional items will be removed from your refunded amount, in addition to the appropriate cancellation fee. In the event that the purchaser and attendee are not the same person refunds will be processed to the purchaser.

At INE's sole discretion, you may incur a rescheduling fee if your request is placed less than 45 days before the original bootcamp start date. Rescheduling fees are based on current bootcamp list price and must be paid before you may attend.
- Rescheduling 46 days or more in advance will not incur a rescheduling fee.
- Rescheduling 45-30 days in advance will incur a 5% rescheduling fee.
- Rescheduling 30-15 days in advance will incur a 15% rescheduling fee.
- Rescheduling 14 days or less before the class start date will incur a 25% rescheduling fee.
Failure to attend your scheduled bootcamp without prior written notification will be considered a “no show” and the full bootcamp price will be forfeited.
INE reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any bootcamp. INE shall not be liable for lost travel expenses or any other expense incurred by the student related to a rescheduled bootcamp. INE assumes no liability in the case of war (declared or undeclared), natural or man-made disasters, delays or inability to travel, or other forces outside of INE's control through which INE determines attending a bootcamp may cause risk to students or INE employees.
Bootcamp confirmation will be provided 30 days before the start date. Bootcamps for which the running dates are changed 31 days or more before the originally-scheduled start date are considered “rescheduled,” not “cancelled.” In the unlikely event that INE must cancel a Bootcamp within 30 days of the scheduled start date, we will contact and work with you to determine the appropriate solution.

Bootcamp orders must be paid in full before the student may attend class.
Bootcamp must be paid in full before any applicable promotional materials can be ordered or delivered.

Hear From Previous Bootcamp Students
Keith is a very detailed instructor and kept the class engaged throughout the week. He goes through material in the workbooks but he also makes sure you have a real world understanding by either showing us through examples on the hardware or drawing it out. He makes sure there is an understanding before moving forward.Theresa T.
Keith was an amazing instructor. Luckily my class had so few people that he knew us by first name. Keith was knowledgeable in every aspect of the CCNP R&S track. You could even throw "scenarios" at him and he would work out the problem in his head. Then he would show you how the logic of the protocols would behave. Keith was able to go very in depth on the routing protocols and that really helped me feel more comfortable with large networks!Victor Vichalili - CCNAx2, CCNP
Keith is a very good mentor. This was my first time attending in class session and it was a great informative experience for me. Keith is one gem of instructor. He was kind, patient and very informative all through the course. The way he explains concepts with his hand gestures and whiteboard diagrams helped me understand them with ease. The lab sessions were the best. I personally loved the way the course is structured and would definitely recommend for students who are planning to take it. Overall it was more than a lifetime experience for the money I paid for.Satish Devan
