    Hi All,

    Haven't been around that much, been very busy... Anyway just got an invite to take part of the new SCP program from Solarwinds.

    The exam will have the following breakdown:
    Topic Test Percentage
    Network Management Fundamentals 7%
    Network Management Planning 15%
    Network Management Operations 13%
    Network Fault and Performance Troubleshooting 31%
    Orion NPM Administration 34%

    So, still deciding if I should go for this or not :hhhmmm After all it's a beta with no real study materials out for it, but then again it's free...

    Ken,

    Did you take place in the beta? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on your experience if you did.

    Hi Mate,

    No, I wanted to. However at the time my closest testing centre was closed and all the other testing centres in the area (up to an hour & 10 mins away) had no vancanies.

    It may be something I'll do in the new year :)

    Seems like a whole new knowledge on the rudiments of network.

    Good luck with it, though.:D

    Ya, apologies for that. It seems we picked one of the busiest times of the year to launch and many testing centres were booked with other appointments.

    Thanks, We're starting with basic network management skills & performance knowledge, and will progress from there depending on adoption. So far the response is good, but as you guys know, a credible cert takes years to develop.

    We had quite a few folks from the UK participate in the beta .... I wonder if any of them are on this forum?

    Maybe, I haven't heard - but that doesn't mean anything :biggrin
