Cant find option to take ACE exam

L1 Bithead



i had been trying to take the ACE exam but i couldnt find the option of ACE in the learning center, only PCNSE and PCNSA.  I actually wanted to take the ACE since im working for a partner of Palo Alto and ACE is needed to take PCNSE directly afterwards. 


However, when i logged with my company's mail/account i found the ACE exam option and took it and passed. Is this 'normal'?

Check out the below path to PCNSE.  No more ACE in the path.

Trying to understand the issue.


So you are saying that the ACE exam is not available under your normal account but is available under some different company account? 


Or you have two different logins to PAN?


If you are sure you are in the right place and it is not showing as available you should reach out to the nextwave support team to investigate.

Hi, I have been desperatly looking for the ace exam option on my PA account and i can't find it.I can find other PA exams such as PCNSE series. 
How can i take ace exam ? 

According to this thread ACE is no longer available (unless previously scheduled for 8.1) or required.

Thats weird because i managed to take it with my 'work' account, but maybe i had it 'registered' just never took it.


Still cant find it with the personal account so maybe indeed they removed it.


By the way, i was told that since i work for a partner, ACE is enough to take afterwards directly the PCNSE exam. Anyone knows anytihng different?
