This five-day course is designed to serve as the ultimate preparation for the Juniper Networks Certified Internet Expert?Security (JNCIE-SEC) exam. The course focuses on caveats and tips useful for potential test candidates and emphasizes hands-on practice through a series of timed lab simulations. On the final day of the course, students are given a six hour lab simulation emulating the testing topics and environment from the real exam. This course is based on Junos OS Release 12.1X46-D10.2 for SRX Series devices.


Students should have passed the Juniper Networks Certified Internet Professional?Security (JNCIP-SEC) written exam or achieved an equal level of expertise through Education Services courseware and hands-on experience.
