Enhanced Flexibility, Convenience, and Validation of Skills

With three new professional and expert-level options (in the SP, ENT, and SEC tracks) candidates now have more options to specialize based on their career goals including the first ever JNCP Professional and Expert-level credentials in enterprise switching and Junos security.

The switch to written exams at the professional level gives candidates the convenience of taking exams on their schedule at any of the more than 5,000 worldwide Prometric Testing Centers or as part of onsite-training engagements…no more travel and time out of the office to take an exam!

The new Professional-level exams are fully supported by comprehensive training curricula and practice tests. The exams will be a comprehensive validation of the candidate’s skills as they test on a broad range of theoretical and Junos topics. By passing the new Professional-level exams, candidates demonstrate they have mastered the breadth of the Junos OS in their respective track and have the ability to choose the correct solution based on a given set of requirements. The focus of Expert-level exams remains a live, lab-based application of Junos skills in demanding, real-world situations.
