Course Description

Course Overview

The Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure – Advanced (DCACIA) course is designed for network engineers and administrators who have experience with Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and want to further enhance their knowledge and skills. This advanced-level course focuses on advanced ACI concepts, implementation best practices, and troubleshooting techniques.


To enroll in the DCACIA course, participants should meet the following prerequisites:

  • Completion of the Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure – Basic (DCACI) course or equivalent knowledge and experience.
  • Understanding of networking protocols, including TCP/IP, VLANs, and routing protocols.
  • Familiarity with data center architecture and virtualization technologies.
  • Basic understanding of Cisco Nexus switches and Cisco ACI.


The DCACIA course combines theoretical lectures with hands-on lab exercises to provide a comprehensive learning experience. The course is instructor-led, and participants will have access to real-world scenarios and use cases. The learning methodology includes:

  • Lectures: In-depth explanations of advanced ACI concepts and implementation strategies.
  • Demonstrations: Live demonstrations of ACI features and configurations.
  • Hands-on Labs: Participants will work on lab exercises using a virtual ACI environment to reinforce their understanding and gain practical experience.
