You must pass the online exam with a score of 75%.
This is not a proctored exam, so you can take the exam online from your home or office. Please ensure that you are on a reliable internet connection before starting the exam.
The exam will be delivered through the FMSE online course. Course access can be requested through the User Center from the Training page under the Support tab.
Take the FMSE online course (only available for version 8) and work with all aspects of Security Manager and the Admin Center before taking the exam. Candidates that have used the product regularly (i.e., more than twice a week) for over 3 months seem to have the most success.
You have 90 minutes to answer 50 questions that are pulled from a question bank.
The first attempt is free with purchase of a seat in the FireMon Solutions Expert Class. Additional attempts can be purchased for $100 through your FireMon account representative.
A purchase order must be received and reconciled before the exam can be taken again. This can take up to 10 business days.
Certificates will be mailed within 30 days.
The certification is good for the major version. We are currently certifying for Security Manager version 7 and 8.
