Prior taking the ACE - Fx course (7501C) start with pre - assessments

Recommended training for students that don't pass the 7581A - Pre-Assessment Avaya Networking Fabric Product Basic Knowledge Web Based Course 7510W Product Basics for Avaya Fabric Networking Solutions 10.00 hrs MXN 3,213.31
in fact 7580A are a diagnostic of all your TI knowledge, cover from servers, applications, Traditional telephony, radio communications, and obviously basic networking topics like ip, tcp, routing protocols, etc... does not are a must to pass, but is a must to present ok?... i failed it... a lot of not networking stuff... bah. it generates a score report by topics so if you found a weak networking area it is a yellow alarm to consider.
7580A, 7581A, 7510W are REQUIRED and I Recomend to study and master this topics because these are the fundations of the new Avaya Networking Certifications.
this web based courses, pre-assesment and assesment covers the HW and SW details of the AVAYA networking gear, the diferences between firmwares BOSS (ERS Family) vs VOSS (VSP Family) and introduces the concept of Fabric.
After successfully completing the pre-assessment tests attend the ACE-Fx training and successfully complete both exams to earn the ACE-Fx credential. Note - At the completion of ACE - Fx (7501C) instruction students will complete the proctored hands on practical Avaya Fabric Networking Lab Exam (7582X), and the ACIS - Avaya Fabric Networking Exam (7590X), in the classroom. Both exam durations are included in the 40 hour course duration.

the 5th day is the hardest day... all or nothing, you have 2,5 hours to complete 7590X (web based exam - pearson managed) 3 if you are non native english speaker
, after a 40 min lunch break start a and 3.5 hours hands on exam, in fact it is to build from a scratch a SPB Network based in a exam format provided at the begining and complete 5 objectives. You also be provided with a cheat sheet with the comands, white sheets and a pen.
it is hard due to the amount to info provided but if you have a solid networking base, you only need to masterize SPB and the labs.
i taked it with 5 more attendees, non native english speakers. 4 passed at Miami
5th one failed web based exam, i think due language barrier but passed later at his country.
all engineers are mid or senior level at his companies.
all attendees dominate more than me the avaya stuff jaajaja
