ONF-Certified SDN Engineer Certification Exam Available at the SDN and OpenFlow World Congress

Earlier this year, ITpreneurs collaborated with the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the adoption of open Software-Defined Networking (SDN), to provide the ONF-Certified SDN Associate (OCSA) certificate, developed as part of the ONF-Certified SDN Professional (OCSP) Program. Following the release of the OCSA certification, the ONF-Certified SDN Engineer (OCSE) certification will be available for the first time at the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress from October 10-14 in The Hague, the Netherlands.

The OCSE certification is targeted at SDN professionals who are actively engaged in the technical components of networking and SDN ecosystems. The OCSE certification will validate technical skills, knowledge, and abilities of the major domains of networking practices that support the theory and practice of SDN. This certification is considered mastery-level validation for technical professionals in the domain of SDN environments.

There is an emergent need for networking professionals to continue to validate their skills, knowledge, and abilities in order to remain competitive within the evolving networking field.We are pleased to work with ITpreneurs to provide testing curriculum to all of our 15 ONF-Approved SDN Training Providers delivering training courses and expanding our network of certified professionals.
Rick Bauer, interim executive director, Open Networking Foundation

Today’s networks are constantly evolving and practitioners at all levels need to keep their skills up-to-date. The OCSP Program provides an industry-recognized standard by which individual knowledge and skills can be evaluated at varied levels within the networking space. ONF’s development of the OCSP Program is in response to the ever-growing need for those within the open SDN industry to validate their knowledge, skills, and abilities within this changing field.

ITpreneurs provides courseware, exams and related services to enable our partners to grow their business and offer new and cutting edge training portfolios. We are very pleased to work closely with ONF to enable training and consulting providers who are keen to help develop the essential SDN skills.
