Technology Tracks and Learning Paths

Our educational sessions are organised into technology tracks and learning paths to make it easy to find the topics that interest you most.




To find the sessions that are most important to you we organise our technical education program into technology tracks and learning paths. You can pick and choose from sessions in multiple tracks or use the recommended learning paths to focus on the specific areas that matter most to you.


You can choose to attend sessions from the following technology tracks.



The Certification technology track sessions include technical seminars and breakouts in areas such as: collaboration, data centre, routing and switching, security, service provider, and wireless. Topics discussed in the technical seminars and breakouts are relevant to what prospective certification candidates will experience in written and lab examinations. This includes all levels from CCNA to CCIE/CCDE and Architect.
