Hi all

I am new to Arista and am being introduced to it having had quite a long time as a Cisco engineer (16 years). My first piece of work is going to be diving in both feet to a global data center refresh program! I’m very much looking forward to it and expect to be spending a lot of time in this community to build and share knowledge :-)

I’ve started reading the Arista Warrior 2nd Edition and am grateful that some of it is familiar given it looks very Cisco like. I am also liking the differences.

I want to start by also aiming at certifications and also have a couple of questions I hope you can help with:

  1. I am CCDP and CCNP R&S, current. Looking just at the table of ACE exams, I am hoping I can aim for Level 4 or Level 6 (I may be overstating myself so happy to accept I may be doing so). In the exam table it states that 4 is a culmination of 1 – 3 plus 4. Does this mean that I have to study for all 4 exams? Or does it mean that relevant experience of 1 – 3 is what is needed? I appreciate that I don’t have the real-world Arista experience so hoping for guidance based on my experience. I also appreciate that I need to do some hands on work.
  2. This page has an ACE Recertification section that refers to certain product feature courses can be taken to accumulate points that add towards your re-cert. Where are these videos and courses? Are they paid for or part of the community / something else?

Thanks all
