                            ENTERASYS CERTIFICATION TRAININGS

Enterasys offers a modular approach to technical certification training focused on
practical, hands-on learning that’s relevant to supporting and optimizing your
Enterasys Network solutions.

Our networking certification program has everything you need to develop your
skills so you can maximize the performance of your network and better meet your
business needs. You will learn the skills to successfully deploy and manage
Enterasys products in your environment.

We also offer a number of certification levels, so you can choose the correct
amount of training to suit your business needs. All certifications are valid for two
years (in the case of ECIE, students must maintain valid ESE and ESSE-D / ESSE-
NAC certifications).

It is recommended to have at least 3 ESE’s and 2 ECIE’s (one in Connectivity and
one in one of our Security tracks; Dragon or NAC) per BLS Center to provide full
support for the different levels of Hardware Architecture Designs and Service
Class.




The number of Certified Engineers required in the field (countries) is dependent on
the size of the Hardware Architecture Design, the Service Class and Service
Strategy in general. But it is also recommended to have ESE’s in major Countries.

             Migration from 2007 to 2008 Certification Program

 • All active ECIE’s will maintain their certification until 2 years from the
   certification award.
 • All ECIE’s looking to recertify after January 1, 2008 will need to attend the
   Implementation and Operation courses for their paths (ESE, ESSE-D, ESSE-
   NAC).
 • All ESE, ESSE-D and ESSE-NAC certified professionals must recertify before
   their 2 year expiration with a recertification exam that contains content from
   each of the supporting courses (i.e. ESE will contain questions from
   Enterprise Switching, Enterprise Routing, Wireless, and Network
   Management).
 • If an ESE, ESSE-D or ESSE-NAC certified professional lets their certification
   expire prior to attending a recertification exam, they must pass all individual
   exams to regain certification. For example, an ESE who recertifies within the
   allotted 2 year timeframe can take one ESE exam. If an ESE does not
   recertify within the 2 years, they must pass individual exams in Enterprise
   Switching, Enterprise Routing, Secure Wireless, and Enterprise Management.
 • After January 1, 2008, all students attending any certification course will be
   offered an exam at the conclusion of each course at the Learning Center.
 • After January 1, 2008, all exams will be hosted by Enterasys Learning
   Centers or via a Enterasys Certified Instructional Partner.
