MikroTik Certified Routing Engineer is an advanced certification that covers different aspects of routing, relevant to larger networks and ISPs, with focus on OSPF with single and multiple areas, Policy Routing, and advance use of static routing. MTCRE also covers the configuration of multi-homed devices, for Load Balancing and Failover. MTCRE is a requirement for the third level certification – MTCINE


Valid MTCNA Certificate Number.

What is the target audience?

  • This course is intended for anyone interested in learning MikroTik routing.
  • ISP Owner / Network Engineer
  • Network Consultant
  • Anyone who want to build the carrier in networking

By the end of this training session, the student will be familiar with routing . He will also be able to configure link redundancy (load balancing, failover), policy routing, vlan and tunneling.
