NSE 8 - Current status

While reading the NSE8 Exam description (http://www.fortinet.com/sites/default/files/NSE8_Certification_ExamDescription.pdf), some questions popped up.
 
Apparently the tested topics and firmware versions can change any time without notice.
Is there already a NSE8 update planned this year? If the topics and firmware versions would change, would these changes have a different exam number? So that you can choose to take the old or new exam?
 
It seems that the written exam can already be scheduled at pearson vue. Is the practical exam already out of beta?
How would a remotely scheduled session look like?

I was approved on NSE8 written on pearson vue. The Exam itself is not about versions, but about concept, troubleshooting and design. You do not need to stay in features, but in "best way to something work". What I can say "out of the NDA" are: Learn more about Fortinet products that you can..
 
My practical exam will be next month on Fortinet Miami/USA office. I don't know if it is beta yet.
 
 
regards.

Hi,
As I'm sure everyone knows NDA prevents all test takers from sharing any information about the exam.
 
Having said that, I can back up what p****oni said:
it's about networking and security concepts that any individual certified at this level should handle fluently, rather than a specific firmware way-of-doing-things. I've taken both the written & lab parts of it and this applies equally for each one of them.   
 
I highly recommend going through all previous NSE level's training and hands-on practice before attempting NSE8. AFAIK NSE8 written test is already available at PearsonVue centers.
 
Cheers!

Hi Holy,
 
I think you may find the following Exam Description useful:
https://www.fortinet.com/content/dam/fortinet/assets/training/NSE8_Certification_ExamDescription.pdf
 
There is also a FAQ that might be of help:
https://www.fortinet.com/content/dam/fortinet/assets/training/NSE8_Certification_ExamFAQ.pdf
 
Both resources taken from: https://www.fortinet.com/support-and-training/training/network-security-expert-program/nse-8.html

The written exam are on Pearson Vue worldwide. The practical exam are only in Fortinet Latam HQ in Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA today... they will increase the locations soon.

Paulo Gratulation on your NSE8!

Hi Holy,
 
Unfortunately after pass on the exam, I receive a Fortinet e-mail with a NDA about it. So I cannot talk about the exam itself... 
 
But as a NSE7, I can say that will have a great chance to complete the exam.
 
The exam cover exactly the topics that are in this document:
https://www.fortinet.com/content/dam/fortinet/assets/training/NSE8_Certification_ExamDescription.pdf
 
regards,
Paulo R.

the document lists general study topics, i would assume that is for both written and pratical. if you want to be 100% sure ask Fortinet themselves as others revealing topics from the exam might get them into problems.
 
from what i heard you can now also schedule in France for the practical exam.

As Holy said there is something mentioned about the exam to take remotely. How does it work?
 
NSE 8
  • Distributors and Platinum Partners, your NSE 8 certification is due soon (please see main Training Page for your region's compliancy date). Remember that NSE 8 level is comprised of two exams, a written exam administered at Pearson Vue, after which a practical exam can be taken either remotely or in person at one of Fortinet's NSE test centers worldwide.

Hello Guys,
 
i have passed my NSE8 Written 2 Weeks ago and now preparig for NSE8 Practical in Sophia.
 
i hope that the Topics that are described in NSE8 Preparation Guide will still be the same and also the Firmware Versions.
 
for Example there is mentioned:
 
FortiADC (D series) operation and configuration
i. Basic networking
ii. Deployment options
iii. System management
iv. Server load balancing and its components
 
so i can be sure that Link Load balancing is not in scope for the exam?
 
FortiWeb operation and configuration
i. Basic networking
ii. Deployment options
iii. Policy configuration
iv. User authentication
v. Load balancing configuration
vi. Attack blocking behavior and configuration
 
 
so here i can be sure that for Example SIte Publishing is not in scope?
 
 
But the biggest questin is about FortiVoice :)
 
FortiVoice Enterprise
i. Basic settings and operation
ii. Phone system settings and extensions
 
its not much but the question is, how can i prepare for that? i have now FortiVoice VM and now? no Phones... how can i test something and how will it be on exam? wil be there any phones?
 
would be kind if someone could answer this questions.
 
Thank you

@holy i think the wise thing will be those ask Fortinet directly, as you are probably in contact already with them they can answer this (or say they won't) without any issue.
 
if someone will answer here based on their experience they are breaking the NDA and might get into trouble, so please take this up with Fortinet themselves. if you can share the answer please do.
 
and as AtiT is asking how does this remote exam work for you?

Hi,
Thank you.
 
Feedback... as mentioned above i can realy recommend the NSE8 Preparation PDF From Fortinet. Build you own lab, practise, watch your time.
 
we didnt have remote scheduling and no one told us how it should look like.
