Before applying for Aruba certifications you need to obtain HPE Learner ID and create a user profile with Pearson VUE, which is the Aruba exam vendor for proctored/online exams. Practical exams (HPE1 or HPE0-AxxxP) are delivered through PSI or Aruba Education Services, therefore no Pearson VUE user profile is required.
Having an Aruba expert-level certification or adding it to your repository of other certifications will give you an edge that puts you in competition with a much smaller pool of candidates for similar positions. Thus, your chances will be better for securing new opportunities, while your competition is stuck with only one of the other vendor’s certifications. Your hard work will stand out. If you achieve any three certifications of ACCX, ACSX, ACMX, ACDX then you will be recognized as Aruba Certified Edge Expert (ACEX) which is the highest level of achievement within the Aruba certification program and you will become one of the most elite network professionals in the world.
