On Firebrand’s accelerated training for Juniper’s JNCIS-ENT (JIR & JEX) certification, you’ll get an overview of intermediate routing and configuration, including protocol-independent routing, load balancing and high availability features.

In just 3 days, you’ll study Layer 2 switching and VLANs, protocol-independent routing, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and border gateway patrol.

Firebrand’s course combines the knowledge equivalent to Juniper’s Junos Intermediate Routing (JIR) and Junos Enterprise Switching (JEX) training courses. You’ll also take your JN0-346 exam during the course, which is covered by your Certification Guarantee.

On Firebrand’s course, you’ll also study:

  • Spanning tree
  • Layer 2 security
  • Intermediate system to intermediate system (IS-IS)
  • Tunnels
  • High Availability

Get hands-on with Juniper Networks SRX Services Gateways and use the Junos OS during the labs – preparing you to manage Junos OS across multiple hardware platforms. You’ll also learn through demonstrations as you gain experience in configuring and monitoring.

You’ll study Junos Enhanced Layer 2 Software (ELS) and take the related JN0-346 exam to achieve your certification. On the JN0-346 exam, all modules relating to enterprise switching are based on the ELS.

If you’re responsible for configuring and monitoring devices running the Junos OS, attaining the Juniper Networks Certified Specialist Security (JSEC) certification is ideal for you.

Firebrand’s course is also built to be your starting point to earning Juniper Network’s advanced security certifications, like the JNCIP-ENT and JNCIE-ENT.

"Course was very good, I liked the analogies given to explain complex networking areas it really helped. The instructor was very good at bringing information to a level everyone could understand and then further on that. "
Ewan jamieson, Mr. (17/2/2020 (Monday) to 22/2/2020 (Saturday))

"Knowledgeable, well spoken and relatable instructor. The instructor explained difficult concepts clearly and provided good examples to help us understand the material. He also discussed real-world examples to help solidify how the concepts are applied in the field. There were a few technical issues with the remote learning and remote labs, but overall a great experience, especially so when considering the current situation with COVID-19."

"I would highly recommend taking up a course with Firebrand because the way the course is delivered is very helpful and useful for someone who either has no knowledge or some knowledge. The instructors do everything they can to ensure everyone is learning and is always on hand to help anyone who is struggling with anything. Everyone on the course is also very helpful and in the same position as they want to learn to. So there is not just the instructor but the class as a whole to assist. The facility is very nice and I will definitely be coming back for any future courses I attend. "
