Multi-way certification
« on: December 23, 2009, 11:36:59 AM »

Many vendors have certifications with a few different branches, for example Cisco's "Routing and switching", "Security" or "Voice", where you can choose only one as well as a few or all of them. Why not to do something similar?
For example, like this:
Main test, before all of next steps: working IPv6 connection.

IPv6 certified user branch:
Level 1: surf the web via IPv6.
Level 2: IPv6 in URLs knowledge (access testing server by it's address on non-standart port)
Level 3: access some other services via IPv6.

Certified system administrator:
Level 1: IPv6-enabled web server.
Level 2: E-mail server.
Level 3: Reverse zone.
Level 4: DNS servers.
Maybe FTP server too.

Certified network administrator:
Level 1: IPv6 subnet behind a router.
Level 2: IPv6 firewall
Level 3: RIPng
Level 4: OSPFv3
Level 5: BGP peering (using private AS numbers)
Automated tests for this branch are not so simple to implement, but I think they are useful and funny.

I like the idea of having an advanced level and requiring the user to submit some info with regards to an IPv6 production network..

Proving ownership of an AS that's advertising at least 1 IPv6 range would be a great top level test.

BGP and OSPFv3 config's for X-brand devices are a bit much thou as you're no longer providing a platform agnostic test.

I'm not so sure he meant to upload a bgp or ospf config. But more that HE would have a test bgp and ospf server that connected to you (over vpn?) to your bgp or ospf server and attempted to peer, pass some traffic based on the routes HE pushed out.

Add NNTP server.  Maybe extra points if on the "top 1000" list.

PS:  Is Gary ever going to add an IPv6 address to HE's NNTP server?  ;)

Hello everyone,

IPv6 forum has launched series of certifications, that seems to be a perfect consolidation of what has been mentioned here.
It would be very interesting to see such course from "HE" combined with practical exercises.

Take a look at the amazing outline :
http://www.ipv6forum.com/ipv6_enabled/ipv6_education.php

What is your take on that?

Anything on how much it costs? Didn't really see it specified. Just that you submit a form in order to use the Education Logo on your site...

A pet/back-burner project of mine is using interactive on-line classware and develop something more robust. Takes time.

I certainly like the idea of an advanced testing program.  I have used GNS3 for lab and simulations.  I did setup BGP with MPLS with IPv6.  So long as you have a machine that will support running the virtual routers.  That may be a good way to get the tests done and prove competence and understanding of the material.  Cheers to HE for using particle testing instead of a bunch of "paper tests".
