Free Brocade Training and Certification!

This might be old news for some, but I recently came across several promotions for free Brocade training and exams for the following certifications (contact information required):

Brocade has been offering these promotions for the past several months.  As of today’s date (Oct 8, 2014) it appears the promos are still good, but I’m not sure how much longer they will last. So hurry and register if these are relevant. They’re quite the deal if you’re a Brocade customer or partner.

A little info on each:

Brocade Certified Ethernet Fabric Professional

  • For engineers seeking to validate fundamental through advanced level skills on Brocade Ethernet fabric concepts and products. Specifically designed for BCNP, CCNP, and CCIE professionals with field experience.
  • Web-based training course is Bridge to Ethernet Fabrics for Network Professionals (CEF 250-WBT). I discovered it’s easier to do a search for this instead of following the link in the Quick Start guide.
  • Certification exam is free using the promo code in the Quick Start guide.

Brocade Certified vRouter Engineer

  • For those already certified in Ethernet concepts looking to become familiar with the Brocade NFV solution, as well as anyone active in installing, configuring and troubleshooting Brocade Vyatta vRouters.
  • Web-based training is Bundle for Brocade Certified vRouter Engineer (SDN BCVRE).
  • Promo includes a 60-day fully functional evaluation of the Vyatta vRouter to get hands-on experience.
  • Certification exam is free using the promo code in the Quick Start guide.

**Passing the exams for the two certifications above meet the requirements for the Advanced Level Certified Professional Converged Networking Track.

Brocade Accredited Network Advisor Specialist accreditation

In addition to the above free training, Brocade also has plenty of other introductory level web-based training courses offered free of charge. The course catalog can be searched here. For web-based training, just choose “Self-Paced Web-Based (WBT) under the Delivery Type. A “My Brocade Training Login” is required.

Gotta love free training!
