Juniper Course Update, Juniper Course Refresh, Nov 27, 2017

IJOS Course Refresh Coming Monday, October 23rd, 2017

Crystal Echo is pleased to announce some very good news for professionals seeking Juniper Training in Australia and Juniper Training in New Zealand.

IJOS (Intro to Junos training) version 15.b will be released on Monday, October 23rd 2017.  Click onto the following link to view the new, updated course outline pertinent to our: Introduction to the Junos Operating System training program.

In summary, here is a brief overview of the changes:

  • This new Juniper course version will now be 15.1X49-D100.6.
  • D100 introduced a new version of the J-Web Interface and so a secondary lab guide has been added that uses the J-Web Interface rather than the CLI to perform the labs. Students will now have a choice, they can perform the labs using the CLI or the J-Web Interface.
  • IPv6 address schemes have been redefined for all labs that use Junos IPv6. The new IP addresses should be shorter and easier to configure for students.
  • In an effort to strengthen Juniper’s Security presentation in the classroom, a new chapter has been added at the end of the course that focuses on Juniper Security concepts. This is a conceptual chapter only, no additional labs are performed.
  • A few additional chapters have been added in addition to the new security chapter mentioned above, including a chapter that discusses working with our support centre (JTAC), and an appendix chapter that covers IPv6 concepts.

JTNOC Course Update Coming Monday, November 27th, 2017 – Additional Content and Juniper Virtual Labs

Although we’re nearing the end of 2017, there are still exciting things to come from Juniper Networks in Australia and NZ.

On November 27th, 2017 Juniper Network’s JTNOC (Junos Troubleshooting course) version 17.a will be launched.  More details will be released closer to the launch date, so be sure to bookmark our Juniper News Blog.

What we can confirm, and would like to mention, is the course duration will change from 3 days to 4 days. The additional day will include instruction on topics such as Junos virtual device troubleshooting, DDoS protection, and ASAP coverage (Automated Support and Prevention).

  • In addition to a longer duration, version 17.a specifies the use of the Juniper vMX virtual router for labs.

Juniper Recertification Without an Exam!

Is your Juniper Certification about to Expire?

Just a reminder that effective January 1, 2017 Juniper Networks began offering a continuing education recertification option for current Juniper certified professionals with expiring credentials.  This allows recertifying professionals to attend a recommended class that corresponds to their expiring certification in lieu of completing the relevant re-certification exam.

Juniper Recertification is Possible without an Exam

To help explain, let’s share an example. If the candidate holds a JNCIS-ENT certification, then attending either the Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR) (at the same qualification level) or the Advanced Junos Enterprise Routing (AJER) (next level up in the same learning path) classes would recertify the JNCIS-ENT certification.

If you would like to lean more about the ways by which you be gain Juniper Networks Recertification, Juniper Networks have published a comprehensive overview of their various approved pathways. Simply click on this external link.

Juniper certifications are achieved by completing each stated prerequisite certification before a higher certification can be attained without exception.

If you desire a JNCIS-ENT (Enterprise Routing & Switching) level certification you must obtain the JNCIA-Junos certification.  To cover the content required to achieve your JNCIA-Junos attendance of the IJOS (Introduction to the Junos Operating System) course is recommended.

So, the order of events goes like this:

  1. JNICA-Junos
  2. JNCIS
  3. JNCIP
  4. JNCIE

To recertify you may sit the same exam you sat many years ago (noting it will be a newer exam) and the exam topics may slightly change, or you can simply sit the next higher level certification course which negates the requirement to sit the current certification you hold.  For example if you hold JNCIS-ENT level certification and before it expires you sit and pass the JNCIP-ENT level certification your JNCIS-ENT level certification remains valid.
