Grandfathered In

If you hold a single current Arista certification from the old program (ACE, ALE, AME, APE), you will be grandfathered into the new ACE:L1. If you hold multiple certifications of the old program in any combination, you will be grandfathered into ACE:L2. This grandfathering process will allow you a one-year grace period before the new rules of recertification will apply.

If you have passed an Arista exam any time in the past we have your information on file. We are implementing an industry standard digital credentialing system with Credly Acclaim. Once this system is populated with the existing Arista certification information each individual will be mapped to either the ACE:L1 or ACE:L2 credential. At that time you will be notified and able to see your new Arista Cloud Engineer digital badge. You do not need to contact us or do any further actions to be grandfathered. We expect this system to be tested and fully operational and all notifications to go out within the next 45 days.

To begin this process, create an account using the button below. Make sure you correctly input your contact info so we can reach you. SDN Pros will handle all logistics as the manager of the new ACE Certification Program.
