Palo Alto Networks Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE)

The primary goal of the ACE certification is to serve as an objective indication of your ability to configure Palo Alto Networks firewalls using the PAN-OS. To pass the ACE exam, you need a foundational knowledge of, and hands-on familiarity, with PAN-OS configuration. Passing the ACE exam indicates that you possess the basic knowledge to successfully configure Palo Alto Networks firewalls using PAN-OS. The exam also serves as a study aid to prepare for PCNSE7 certification. (Some partners may also use the ACE credential to verify their expertise and progress through their partner program.)

The Accredited Configuration Engineer (ACE) exam tests your knowledge of the core features and functions of Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls. The ACE exam is web-based and consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. The exam is not timed, and you can retake it as many times as necessary to earn a passing score.

It is delivered through the Palo Alto Networks Learning Center, which is the primary resource for managing your Palo Alto Networks transcript and credentials.
