ACCA vs ACCP?

  • 1.  ACCA vs ACCP?

    Posted Jul 25, 2018 09:15 PM

    Hello. I just completed the ClearPass Essentials class. I'm trying to understand the difference between these two exams. It seems that on the ACCA you are tested on knowledge of a smaller number of topics ... but the Essentials class should prepare one for either one? I'm kind of wondering why one would choose the ACCA cert in that case?

    It is just the competency level at which they are going to test you. If you look at Aruba certification page, they rate ACCA as a professional level and ACCP as an expert level exam (I though they should be associate and professional though). But yeah, if you think you are ready, you can take ACCP directly.

    Thank you for your help, Jay. So let me ask you this. Being new to ClearPass ... which one would I want to take? What means more (as an HPE/Aruba partner btw) to clients, to Aruba? I would think that while I have had the material for both, the likelihood of passing the ACCA is higher. Would an "associate" be looked upon differently? I'm thinking that whether a client sees "associate" or "professional" isn't going to make a heck of a lot of difference, no?

    So if you ask my opinion, I would prefer ACCP everytime over ACCA. I have same thought for ACMA/ACMP.

     

    I did ACMA as it was part of mobility bootcamp at that time but never bothered to go for ACCA.

     

    If we talk in a familiar cert terms, I see it as choosing one between CCNA and CCNP. Also, if you wannt to progress in your cert path, you will need ACCP as a prerequisite for ACCX, which indeed is a mighty cert to have!
