Junos Pulse Access Control Certification Track

The Juniper Networks Certification Program (JNCP) Junos Pulse Access Control Track allows participants to demonstrate competence with Juniper Networks technology. The Junos Pulse solution provides dynamic SSL VPN connectivity, network access control (NAC), security, and application acceleration through a simplified user experience. Successful candidates demonstrate thorough understanding of the deployment, implementation, and configuration of the Access Control component.

Note: Effective April 13, 2012, the JN0-141 AC, Associate (JNCIA-AC) exam was End of Life (EOL). The Juniper Networks Certified Internet Associate, AC (JNCIA-AC) certification and the Access Control Track also became inactive and unsupported. Please note however, that once earned, a JNCIA-AC credential is valid for a period of two years.

The replacement exam is this JN0-314 Junos Pulse Access Control, Specialist (JNCIS-AC), which earns the Juniper Networks Certified Specialist Junos Pulse Access Control (JNCIS-AC) certification.
