Certification Help

Hey everyone,

I'm new to the Juniper world and i'm seeking some help...

I'm looking in to studying and taking a JNCIA certification. I noticed I have MANY options though:


I'm leaning towards the jncia-m certification but im really not sure and stumped. In the very near future, i'm going to be working with Netscreen 5GT's, Netscreen 5GT-ADLS, Netopia 3341 and Netopia 3346 boxes. I'll be working with configs, VPN tunnels, DSL, Dial Up, troubleshooting issues etc.

Anyone have any recommendations over the jncia-m cert which will benefit me more?

If I complete the above cert, will I receive a hardcopy JNCIA certification? Do I have to complete multiple exams to receive the JNCIA cert or will I receive one for every exam? What is the passing grade for the above exam?

Thanks a lot everyone..

    yes - you can plug the IDS-IPS-Firewall module in the M series router,
    but JNCIA-M really focusing on M series router product knowledge and how to make it running first.
    if you really need a fast track configuring netscreen firewall/vpn then you must master the screenos - go with JNCIA-FWV.

    you'll get the hard copy, and 2 years recognition as JNCIA-x.

    the More I know, that is more and More I dont know.

    Thanks a lot for the response.

    I was just reading about the JNCIA-FWV and it looks much more appealing than the "m'. Would it gave me a basic understanding on any of those 4 boxes I mentioned (Netscreen 5GT's, Netscreen 5GT-ADLS, Netopia 3341 and Netopia 3346)

    IMO if you want to specifically focus doing netscreen then go with JNCIA-FWV,
    but the basic terms of firewalling or VPN is the same from one another - just with a little adjustment in how you handle what a specific device want for a set of actions in its input command.

    Great, thanks for the reply.

    Do you have any suggested learning material? Any books or possibly free online resources?

    Thank You

    I'm not a netscreen guy, so I don't have many suggestions.... but I hear this book is supposed to be good.

    Taking the CJFV course would make sense. (Yeah, I'm a firewall trainer, so what else couls I say ? :D ) Just look at the juniper site to find a training centre....
    For specific topics: look at www.juniper.net/techpubs, screen-os software. Everything is there, but it's hard to filter out what you don't need.
