Where can we take the exams?

on ‎03-13-2017 07:49 PM

You can only take exams at the end of an 'official' Ubiquiti

class--presented by a Ubiquiti-certified instructor. You

may be able to find a class at:

They should offer online or testing-center tests like Cisco, et al.

on ‎03-15-2017 05:34 PM

No option to 'challenge' the exams?  Bummer.

So how would they pay for the manual and course

development? What incentive would there be for

anyone to become instructors? Should this be a free

ride for those who won't attend courses?   Dave

on ‎03-15-2017 08:02 PM

Cisco instructors still make a boat load of money even though one can self study with free materials and take the test for $100.

on ‎03-16-2017 08:33 AM

'keefe', do you seriously compare the breadth and

depth of a Cisco course with what you see in this

free manual? What percentage of success do you

think there is with the Cisco test without training?   Dave

on ‎03-16-2017 08:37 AM

I have personally passed Cisco and Microsoft tests from self-studying and most Cisco certified people I know also self-studied and haven't taken classroom training.

on ‎03-16-2017 09:08 AM

That wasn't what I asked. If that were generally

true, how could Cisco instructors make a

'boatload' of money? Is it possible that Cisco

courses have far more general application and

use for career paths than this one has?  Dave

on ‎03-16-2017 09:16 AM

Some people prefer a classrooms setting and/or want an accelerated learning experience.


Also, I'm not concerned about keeping trainers in business.  What's best for the community is to have as much information available as possible.

on ‎03-16-2017 04:25 PM

I understand where your interest is. But again,

you miss the point. If you accept that a classroom

experience is valuable for some folks--if not for you--

that requires trained instructors. That's why 'keeping

them in business' is a useful goal; they don't prep

and present for nothing.


And that information you want available isn't free

either; it requires gathering/compiling/editing,

illustrating and publishing. That's what's 'best for the

community', and that's why you usually have to pay

for books. Ubiquiti takes on the cost of this book as

a community service; you want them to give it all away.  Dave

I have no problem paying for a book.


I have a big problem spending my limited time and money traveling from my remote location (3 hours to a secondary airport, almost five to a major city) and then paying someone to teach me basic networking and wireless concepts that I understand quite well.

on ‎03-16-2017 05:39 PM
All we are saying is that UBNT should offer online or testing center certification testing for people who don't have the time, money, or inclination for a classroom training session.

I've taken and passed V2 with a high score but looking forward to read this version 2.1

I find the biggest problem with not offering online courses or just offering up exams is that the courses are not held locally and we really cannot travel as we need the time for installations with customers. We have a lot of MS, Cisco, Citrix, Milestone (yuck) and other certs, mostly from just walking into testing centers and taking exams. You sign up at a local testing center, pay a fee, take the test, then pass or fail. UBNT would certainly benefit from people taking exams and just exams. This model has worked out well for a lot of large tech companies. Of course, UBNT would have to create a more solid structure as far as a pathway to certification. This idea may be too early as UBNT is just now starting a really robust program, but for now, the closest to us will be Philadelphia and it's held at a time that is completely undoable and since it seems that the training crew appears to be a traveling circus (just comparing the way the calendar looks compared to availability of training), it's really not very convenient to become certified. Believe me, I would love to complete my UBNT certs all the way to trainer and offer local training to make it easier for those interested locally.

I appreciate free training materials if they’re detailed enough to be useful.

Ditto senseiNYC. The more trained and certified people a company can field, the more brand advocates and capable installers there are.

The biggest vendors don’t have to give the training away for free because there are enough people dying to jump on their wagon. A younger brand should consider fielding certified experts as fast as possible to build a strong pool of advocacy and skills.

But certs can still be done without ever taking a class. I’ve passed 15 exams the first attempt (for MCP, MCSE, CCNA, CCDA, CCNP, CCDP, and 2 Wireless specializations), and attended 2 classes, only because my employer sent me there.
Everything else was via self-study.

I’ve only read part of the UBNT manual but now I’m installing 5AC / 24GHz systems on offshore oil rigs. Nowhere near as complicated as VSAT and IDirect systems with a Riverbed WAN accelerator. Life’s a hoot!

@UBNT-Jamie Are the test free? I just began reading the UEWA and would love to get certified

Hi there,

Was wondering if someone can help me. Im looking to do the Ubiquiti Broadband Routing & Switching Admin (UBRSA), but its not offered in South Africa. Ubiquity does not want to give me the training material as the say its an in class course.


Does anyone have the cource material they can share with me.

‎06-19-2018 06:16 AM - edited ‎06-19-2018 06:18 AM

@SuperBoss16v, training materials have been available for anyone to download and use for well over a year now...

EDIT: Sorry you're talking about UBRSA, not UBRSS, right? I'm afraid that's not yet publicly available, at least not in english.

‎06-19-2018 06:51 AM - edited ‎06-19-2018 06:51 AM

@SuperBoss16v UBRSA is an interesting story, it was announced back in late 2014. The trainer that I did my UCWA (now UBWA) and UEWA with said that I should do UBRSA instead of UBRSS since UBRSS was an entry level course. I had been trying to get to do the class ever since, there was one scheduled at Wispapalooza in October 2016 which I couldn't get anything further on. I privately scheduled a class in late 2016 through a vendor whom was told to cancel it by UBNT, 2017 came and went without anything further success. Early 2018 I found some classes being offered and managed to get one done in January, easily passing the class. I was less than impressed though, it wasn't up to the standard of the UCWA and UEWA classes which I had taken early in 2014. I wasn't paired in the class as it was supposed to be offered and told by the vendor providing the class. The training did a good job under the circumstances but it also was offered as a 2 day class but really should be 3 days. UBWA, UEWA and UBRSS material is available for download but UBRSA is not because the material isn't complete yet. You don't have enough posts for me to PM, so shoot me an email on Colin dot H at McWilliams dot cc ... I'm from PE, where you located?

@chmcwill Do you recommend doing one of the WA cources instead? Im based in Pretoria

on ‎06-19-2018 07:13 AM

@R4V3R Yes taliking about the UBRSA cource. Talked to one of the traiing centres and the said they already recieved the training cource but UBNT hasn't giving the the go ahead.

on ‎06-19-2018 07:57 PM

UBWA is for AirMax products (aka carrier/broadband), UEWA is for UniFi Products (aka Enterprise) and UBRSS is an entry-level or recommended pre-requisite for EdgeMax products (aka Routing/Switching) - so it depends on what you are looking at. The A - Admin classes (typically 2 days) are more advanced than the S - Specialist classes (typically 1 day).

on ‎06-19-2018 10:39 PM

@chmcwill I've done the UBRSS course that why is was looging to do the UBRSA so I can learn more about the edgmax/EgdeOS.


Would I then benifit from doing the UBWA and or UEWA?

on ‎12-20-2018 07:44 PM

So still no online training or just walk-in tests available? There's severe money being lost here.
