This is still in Beta until the end of the year.

 

I was taking the EDU-210 class earlier this month, and the instructor mentioned that this was for System Administrators and that the EDU-210 class is what is recommended for this PCNSA certification.

Its free to take/schedule until the end of the year, I scheduled one for Dec 30th :)

 

My understanding is that this is like PCNSE but without Panorama, CLI, Traps .. (as per the instructor).

 

The Overview section of the provided Beta Study Guide states


"The Palo Alto Networks Certified Network Security Administrator (PCNSA) is a formal, third‐party proctored certification that indicates that those who have passed it possess the in‐depth knowledge to design, install, configure, and maintain most implementations based on the Palo Alto Networks platform.
This exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills necessary to implement Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall PAN-OS® 8.1 platform in any environment. This exam will not cover Aperture and Traps."
