The candidate has to pass through an exacting set of performance-based tests to earn the certification, with entry to the tests being given to those who have at least 1 year’s experience in implementing and administering a network operating system, and also possess troubleshooting skills acquired on-the-job. The tests require the candidate to solve problems and accomplish tasks in a simulated workplace condition, which helps in accurate assessment of the candidate’s knowledge and skills, plus response time, and confidence level.
