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.

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.
