Changes to the Aruba certification program you should know about!

  • 1.  Changes to the Aruba certification program you should know about!

    Posted Jul 29, 2019 08:13 PM

    Aruba is excited to announce advances to the certification model aimed at simplifying the program and adding a larger return on investment.

     

    So far this year Aruba has grown its Certified Professionals by 42% and are on track to add 5,000 newly certified engineers into the market. However, we can do more to accelerate our growth and bring lasting value to Aruba certified professionals.

     

    Here are some of the highlights of the new program launching November 1st, 2019:

     

    • No more certifications with versions. Certified professional will be recognized for the Aruba expertise they have gained.
    • Predictable market relevance. Career certifications will be valid for 3 years, product and sales certifications for 2 years.
    • Simplified path to Expert. No more pre-requisites! Expert certification candidates just need to pass the written and practical exams.
    • New Aruba Edge Certification. This is an industry first certification that recognizes Aruba certification holders for their breadth of knowledge at every level. Existing AMFX will be migrated to this new certification.
    • Enhanced recertification policies. Any higher-level certification will recertify the lower one. For Aruba Edge holders, one exam recertifies all certifications.
    • Program simplification. Investments are aligned to Aruba programs.

    Hi frenzied,

     

    I guess Aruba Edge Expert certification will be the replacement for AMFX, right Jenna?

     

    What will be the anagram for this certification? For instance, ACMX or CCIE is quickly recognizable in the industry.

     

    IMHO, the use of AMFX was not distinguishing enough compared to the AC...X certifications. Guys with AMFX have successfully passed 3 Expert level certifications, that's something!

    Yes that's right, Aruba Certified Edge Expert (ACEX) will replace the AMFX and all current AMFX holders will be grandfathered in. 

     

    The anagrams will be ACEA, ACEP, and ACEX.

    The Aruba Edge certification holder has at least 3 out of 4 certications at a given level (associate/professional/expert). For example the Aruba Certified Edge Associate is granted if you hold Aruba Certified Mobility Associate, Aruba Certified Switching Associate, and Aruba Certified Design Associate. 

     

    Same applies at the professional and expert level! 

     

    Check out the FAQ here, and go to the "Aruba Edge Certification" section to learn more!

    What are the proper study guides to use?  I have the HPE Press book for the HPE6-A42 Exam (Aruba Certified Mobility Associate). 

    I feel that the book is not a very good reference/study guide compared to the exam questions.  

    Please advise.  Thank you.
