You'll learn the advanced routing technique that gets traffic from one place to another not based on addresses but based on labels – MPLS. Multiprotocol label switching and the essentials of thinking with it – along with actually implementing and configuring it – is the main takeaway of this course.

MPLS Fundamentals FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
This MPLS course is fairly advanced and relies on a foundation of networking knowledge, so the ideal audience is network administrators with several years of experience under their belt. Network engineers – or networking professionals who want to eventually become network engineers – should also consider taking this MPLS course.
No, this MPLS course isn't designed to prepare you for any certification exams. The exams that you have to pass to earn a certification can tend to be padded with extra information and a lot of memorization – this course only focuses on the actual use cases of MPLS.
It's hard to say what certification someone might consider after taking this course since it's an advanced course on a specific topic. After this course, Cisco's CCNP Enterprise or CCNP Data Center might be easier, and the administration techniques you'll learn in this course could help with CompTIA's Network+.
You should take this MPLS training because using labels to direct traffic from one node to another can massively improve your network's speed. If you want to be the sort of network administrator who recommends and configures highly technical enterprise routing solutions, you should take this course.
