Most of our messaging around the changes to the program have focused on those already actively pursuing a JNCP certification.  However, we have heard from many of you who are just starting, particularly via the FastTrack promotion, and are not sure how to best move forward.  Below are some helpful explanations.  These will also be posted on our certification web page under "What's New", along with a FAQ.  Hope this helps!

 

Are you new to the  Juniper Networks Certification Program? If so you have a number of options:

 

For Enterprise Track certifications:

  • You don’t have to wait, you can certify NOW on the following:
    • Juniper Networks Certified Internet Associate – Enterprise Routing (JNCIA-ER)
    • Juniper Networks Certified Internet Specialist – Enterprise Routing (JNCIS-ER)
    • Juniper Networks Certified Internet Associate – Enterprise Switching (JNCIA-EX)
    • These certifications are recognized and will be valid and active for two (2) years from the date of certification.  There is no risk or loss of investment by achieving these certification credentials now. You have this option until December 3, 2010.

    • If you choose to wait, you can do the following:
      • Achieve the Junos base-level certification now by taking the Juniper Networks Certified Internet Associate – Junos (JNCIA-Junos) which is the pre-requisite to the advanced level Enterprise certifications
      • On October 1, you will be able to achieve your specialist-level certification in the Enterprise track by taking the Juniper Networks Certified Internet Associate – Enterprise (JNCIA-ENT)

 

For Service Provider Track certifications:

  • You don’t have to wait, you can certify NOW on the following:
    • Juniper Networks Certified Internet Associate – M/T-series (JNCIA-M)
    • Juniper Networks Certified Internet Specialist – M/T-series (JNCIS-M)
    • Again, these certifications are recognized and will be valid and active for two (2) years from the date of certification.  There is no risk or loss of investment by achieving these certification credentials now. You have this option until October 1, 2010.

    • If you choose to wait, you achieve the following:
      • Achieve the Junos base-level certification now by taking the Juniper Networks Certified Internet Associate – Junos (JNCIA-Junos) which is the pre-requisite to the advanced level
        Service Provider certifications
      • Starting on August 6, 2010, you now have the option to achieve your specialist-level certification in the Service Provider track by taking the Juniper Networks Certified Internet Specialist – Service Provider (JNCIS-SP).

Hi Liz

 

Thanks for this summarize information. Actually I want to ask:

 

1- There would be no JNCIA-ENT and JNCIA-SP because you mention only the JNCIS-ENT and JNCIS-SP

2- When the JNCIE-ENT and JNCIE-SEC labs would be available?

 

Looking forward for your response

Aeroplane,

 

There is no JNCIA-ENT or JNCIA-SP (as there is no JNCIA-SEC).  The JNCIA-Junos cert (earned by taking the JN0-100 exam) is the prereq associate cert for the ENT/SP and SEC tracks.

 

The JNCIE-ENT and JNCIE-SEC should be available in 1H 2011.

Yes - we do expect to have a P/E level for the Service Provider track.  Timeframe is mid-2011 for this track.
