NSE Levels, ERCs, and partner requirement dates

I guess I have a few questions--

 

How can we check what our 'official' NSE certification level is?  For those of us that hold FNCSPv5, is this converted to NSE 4 already?

 

Will NSE 4s receive express routing codes if partner certification levels are met? How long do partners have to meet the certification requirements laid out at the global conference?

 

The FAQ stated that in addition to FAZ and FAM courses NSE 5 required online tests in the learning center?  Same question for NSE 6.

 

Thanks,

Gary

Hi Gary,

 

We have identified that this is an issue and we are currently working on a method of checking your current cert level.

But meantime from the FAQ.....

 

Are the new certifications backward compatible? For example, if I am currently an FCNSP, am I automatically an NSE4? During the transition to NSE, valid FCNSP certificates will meet the NSE 4 requirement. FCNSA and FCNSP exams will remain available for six months, allowing those who have started down the FCNSA/P path to complete their certification.

 

Routing codes and deadlines to meet these requirements will be managed by the sales team, please pass this on to your local fortinet salesperson.

 

The faq is correct, the tests for FMG and FAZ will be available in out Learning Center, as will the tests for NSE6.....

 

That will be me then!!

Hello,

 

i allready attended 2 Online Courses FortiManager / FortiAnalyzer. i do have a participate certificate, the instructor said, they will be valid for NSE5. Do i have to do the Exams now to get NSE 5 ?

 

what about NSE 6 ? 

 

i am a FortiWifi Specialist since December 2014 and a FCESP (FortiMail) since February 2015 i am about to do the FortiWeb Class in April and want to attend the online Exam for FortiWeb. 

Will this be Valid for NSE 6 ? or do i have to do some new Exams for NSE 6 ?

 

What about FortiSandbox,DDOS and AD Courses? there are no online of offline courses on Learning Center ( Partner Portal) so how can i do NSE 6 then?
