Thanks for this article. I'm planing to take the exam of "Switching and Routing Boot Camp (EXOS and EOS)" and basically I have done studying for this. 

My question is, "Does Extreme-Networks offer a preparation exam before my real exam?" Thank you very much in advance.

I have already downloaded it. I'm wondering whether I do not receive a hard copy via post.

As far as I know you don't get a hardcopy. At least I've never received one.

Hi Weda,

Technical Training does not mail hard copy of the Certificate to students. You should be able to print the certificate after the .pdf version is download.

Hello Marcus,

To certify for ECNA you are required to attend the class and take the exam or you can take the exam only.  See the above response for the link to the Training Class schedule.

You can purchase the exam by submitting a PO for part number TR-EXAM-XOSFUND or TR-EXAM-EOSFUND, depending on this ECNA certification you require, or you can purchase the exam codes by credit card on our Extranet site here:  https://extranet.extremenetworks.com/MySupport/MyTraining/_layouts/apps/training/exampurchase.aspx

Thanks, Suzanne
