Deploying Cisco Unified Contact Center Express (UCCX)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Content

Fast Lane’s UCCX training course is a hands-on experience that teaches system engineers and other IT professionals how to deploy Cisco Unified Contact Center Express and Cisco Unified IP Interactive Voice Response (IVR) solutions within a contact center environment. Upon completing this course, you will be equipped with the knowledge of day-to-day contact center operation, including planning, installation and configuration, scripting and troubleshooting.

Who should attend

Cisco Unified Communications system channel partners/resellers, system engineers and professionals currently tasked with deploying and maintaining Cisco Unified Contact Center Express products are ideal for Fast Lane’s UCCX training. IT pros deploying and maintaining new UCCX v10.6 technologies are also welcome; this includes products such as MediaSense, Finesse and Cisco Unified Intelligence Center.

Still unsure if you should enroll in this course? Consider Dave’s story. Dave was a systems engineer for a prominent corporation in the Triangle area. Tasked with managing programs like MediaSense, Finesse and CUIC, Dave sought a broader knowledge of UCCX to better train his team members and potentially move up the ladder in his company.

Dave signed up for our UCCX course and passed all required modules and labs, and since completing the course, Dave has successfully trained his team how to implement and maintain a full UCCX suite. Furthermore, Dave now has a comprehensive knowledge of Cisco’s UCCX system, allowing him to handle more tasks on his plate and perform at a higher level for his company.


We encourage professionals interested in UCCX training at Fast Lane to have substantial knowledge of internetworking fundamentals, as well as basic IP telephony, Cisco IP phone, Cisco IP Communicator, Contact Center Operations, and Cisco Unified Communications Manager skills. Still unsure if you should enroll in this course? Keep reading below as we detail the ideal candidate for UCCX training.

Course Objectives

Like Dave, by the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Provide product descriptions, compatibility, hardware and software options, architecture, and sizing and ordering tools of the Cisco Unified Contact Center Express product suite.
  • Describe the Cisco Unified CCX script editor, how it is installed and how to implement common IVR scripting techniques.
