Arista Certified Engineering Associate (ACE)

The Arista Configuration Essentials class and the official Arista Documentation. Note that no single piece of source material may provide all the answers. The ACE-A exam draws heavily from the ACE class material and if you took the class you were exposed to almost all of the study material for this exam!

This is an Arista Networking associate-level exam. As such, there will be no questions about programming, though we might ask how to configure eAPI in CLI. We do not ask about routing protocols, but we might ask how to configure a feature that utilizes XMPP. We might ask about a simple bash command that you might learn in the ACE class, but you are not expected to be a Linux administrator for this exam.

The goal of this exam is to test the candidate’s knowledge of Arista products and to see if they are capable of managing and maintaining an Arista switch. This test is heavily geared towards EOS CLI and Arista-specific features or differentiators.

In short, this is not a networking exam. This is a “do you know how to operate an Arista switch” exam.
