How to prepare

Instructor-led and eLearning Courses

We recommend that candidates complete the ECMS1 and ECMS2 training courses prior to taking the exam. These courses serve as "bootcamps" that will prepare candidates with the necessary knowledge and practical experiences to be successful in their attempts at passing the exam. Both courses are available in instructor-led as well as eLearning formats.


Self-study Resources

The following self-study resources are meant to supplement a candidate’s learning experience and exam preparation. This contains a comprehensive collection of Meraki documentation articles mapped to potential exam topics with some additional video-on-demand content. A separate supplemental guide prepares a candidate for the practical, hands-on component of the technology.
