Changes to Firewall/VPN Certification Track

‎12-14-2012 09:36 AM

On February 15th, 2013 the Juniper Networks Certification Program will make the following changes to the Firewall/VPN track:

 

1)  EOL the JN0-522 FWV, Associate (JNCIA-FWV) certification exam

2)  Replace the existing JN0-532 FWV, Specialist (JNCIS-FWV) certification exam with the JN0-533, Specialist (JNCIS-FWV) exam. Note: There is no change to the recommended training courses for the JNCIS-FWV exam.

 

What is the impact on candidates?

Candidates preparing for the JN0-522 FWV, Associate (JNCIA-FWV) exam or the existing JN0-532 FWV, Specialist (JNCIS-FWV) exam should plan to take their exam(s) by February 15th at any Pearson VUE testing center. Once earned, a certification credential remains valid for two years.

 

After February 15th, candidates working to earn a Firewall/VPN certification will take the new JN0-533 FWV, Specialist (JNCIS-FWV) exam. Details on the new exam, including topics covered, are available on the Firewall/VPN Track page.

 

Please contact certification-info@juniper.net with any questions.

 

Thanks,

Hi Guys,

 

I know this thread is old but I need a quick Update for the JN0-533 (JNCIS-FWV).

I've been asked if it would make sense to do this Certification, since we still have Customers with ScreenOS.

Has this Track been announced EoL or something or will it last at least another 3-10 Years?

 

Any Info will be appreciated

Now that all of the ScreenOS platforms have reached end of sale, I expect the latest date you can expect the JNCIS-FWV to be issued would be the end of support date in May of 2021.

I think the certification makes sense for those who will support ScreenOS directly.  I found the exam prep process helpful in learning the platform and supporting the features and troubleshooting tasks.
