The ESE (Enterasys Systems Engineer) certification is aimed towards professionals who are capable of incorporating changing business needs and requirements into running an enterprise wired and wireless network. There are four tracks to choose from: switching, routing, wireless, and network management.
Additionally, the ESE certification validates an engineer's ability to use standards based routing protocols, such as PIM, VRRP, BGP, OSPF, and RIP. A certified ESE must also possess an understanding of network fundamentals, traditional wireless networking products, network management concepts, and traffic classifications.
In order to earn ESE (Enterasys Systems Engineer) certification, candidates must attend a mandatory training course in one of the four specialization tracks. Alternately, candidates can opt to take both the ESE Fast Track 1 training course and the ESE Fast Track 2 training course. Regardless of which course the candidate chooses, a required exam will be given at the end of the course and must be passed in order to gain certification.
Certification lasts for 24 months. Renewal may be achieved by taking a recertification exam through an Enterasys Learning Center or through a certified training partner.
