About the instructor

My name is Andreas Bækdahl and I am a Senior Network Architect and work as a consultant with network automation and DevNet technologies hands-on every day. I hold the highest expert-level Cisco Certification on 5 technology tracks.

In 2020 I passed both exams for DevNet Professional on the global launch-day of the program, as the first  person in the world.

In 2022 I passed the DevNet Expert lab exam as the first person in the world.

I have been teaching official Cisco courses since 2017 as a Certified Cisco Systems Instructor (CCSI).

This DevNet Expert Masterclass however is completely independent and not associated with Cisco Systems, Inc. in any way. As per Cisco policy I am not allowed to maintain CCSI status and conduct independent training at the same time, so I have now resigned my official instructor status to run the DevNet Expert masterclass instead.

For the last 2 years as Certified Instructor I score 5.0 average out of 5 on official evaluation for Customer Satisfaction (MTM CSAT)

My current DevNet Expert Masterclass training is evaluated publicly and independently on Trustpilot and all reviews so far are rated 5 out of 5.
