Yesterday I passed the Palo Alto Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) Exam – PAN-OS 6.0 Version, the exam was quite easier provided you have hands on experience on Palo Alto firewall.

The Palo Alto Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) Exam – PAN-OS 6.0 Version is an entry-level exam of Palo Alto Certifications, which tests your knowledge of the core features and functions of Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls. The ACE exam is web-based and consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. The exam is not timed, and you can retake it as many times as necessary to earn a passing score.

Those who wants to be an Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) Exam – PAN-OS 6.0 Version, they just need to visit Palo Alto education website and get registered. Once done with registration, one can straight away attempt the Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) Exam provided he/she has the through knowledge of Palo Alto firewall. If not the best way to master ACE concepts is to register for Firewall Installation, Configuration, & Management (EDU-101 or EDU-201), EDU-101 is available at no cost as a self-paced online learning experience. EDU-201 is instructor-led with lab exercises and is offered through Palo Alto Network Authorized Training Centers (ATCs).

I took Firewall Installation, Configuration, & Management (EDU-101) self-paced online course which is about 6 hours long. The course is quite informative and the instructor has done an amazing job in explaining the concepts in simple language.

Certainly the Firewall Installation, Configuration, & Management (EDU-101) gives any one a good understanding of the concepts, but what about the hands on experience?  You can certainly use the Firewall Installation, Configuration, and Management: Essentials I -Lab Manual for this purpose provided you have an access to any Palo Alto firewall which is not under production. Palo Alto recommends PA -200 firewall for this lab, however if you don’t have physical appliances one can make use of Unified Networking Lab for the preparation of the Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) Exam. In the upcoming post I will try to shed some light on Unified Networking Lab and how you can make it as your source of preparation.
