Target Audience:

The ACE Level 5 course is best suited for individuals with more than 5 years of experience in the Network Engineering field. Prior exposure to the basics of Python, Ansible, and CloudVision are needed as this is not a beginner-level course. Mid-to-senior level Network Engineers and Operations staff will find the skills most often searched for by corporations for these positions. Those individuals holding current or expired Professional certifications in other vendor programs will find a refreshed and updated approach. ACE:L5 focuses on the features and skills needed in advanced networks. You will not waste energy learning outdated technologies, approaches, or tasks no longer used in open networks.

ACE:L5 includes numerous hands-on labs. At the time of purchase, you will have numerous options for lab time with both the instructor-led and self-study packages. Most packages include 3-weeks of lab time. For the instructor-led courses, this includes the week of the course as well as two additional weeks to work on labs on your own. Every engineer is given their own dedicated environment and will not be required to share with others. The labs are built on the latest released vEOS and CloudVision codes and deployed in an AWS environment. This allows you to connect from anywhere and anytime. This is actual code and not simulators.
