Aruba expert certification holders are among the highest paid and most respected professionals in the networking industry. Achieving an expert level certification validates that you have deep technical experience and skills on Aruba technologies. In order to pass an expert level exam candidates must combine years of experience with rigorous training to take an intensive eight-hour practical exam. This guide will help you to understand the prerequisites and recommended training required to earn this highly valuable technical certification.

Aruba Education Services provides hands-on advanced level training to help prepare candidates for expert level exams. Although training is not required to take the expert exam, it is highly recommended to be fully prepared. In fact, Aruba is so confident that taking training will increase your chances of passing that it now offers a free retake of an expert practical exam if you fail the first time after attending the advanced course. Effective July 15, 2019, Aruba Education Services will allow you a one-time retake ($1200 value) for free when you attend the recommended training prior to your first attempt. *See terms and conditions at the end of post.
