I've the impression that the site is not very up to date....

i.e. the certification ECE-wirless list as requirement the classes for:
2.NMS Advanced Wireless Services NMS Advanced Wireless Services

The training "NMS Advanced Wireless Services" isn't available anymore.

i.e. ECS-wireless list as requirement "course exam"
Which one ? The WLAN jumpstart one day class or the wireless 4 day class.

Also if you are already ECE the site still don't show how to recertify that level.
I was told that I don't need to recertify each ECS to keep my ECEs but I'd like to see that on the webpage and also how that works.

Thanks & wish u all a great weekend,

We are currently working on updating the Extreme website to reflect a number of changes that have occurred within the Training and Certification program over the last several months.  We hope to have this updated in the next several weeks so we appreciate your patience.  In regards to your questions:
 - ECE Wireless will include Wireless + BYOD
 - ECS Wireless (which is different than ECS-WLAN) requires the exam associated to the 4 day Wireless class.
 - Lastly, in regards to ECE Networking re-certification, we are working on launching a re-certification course and associated exam targeted for release at the end of this year (2015).

As "several weeks" went by I'm really interested about the status as I don't see any changes to the website.

Hi Ron,

We are making progress on updating the Extreme Website for the certification rollout and we are expecting this to be completed shortly.  We did make a changed to the ECE Wireless is now is aligned with our Wireless Solution:  Wireless, BYOD + NetSight Certification.  For partners and customers that have the older Enterasys Switching NMS certification this will also count towards the new ECE Wireless Certification. Thank you for your patience

Just a quick update on this topic, we have removed the BYOD requirement for the Expert in Wireless Certification or  ECE-Wireless, it is now Wireless  + NetSight Boot Camp. The web site should be updated in a couple of days.

Policy and NAC integration for Wireless will be part of the existing Policy and Network Access Control (NAC) Classes in the near future.
