The Fortinet NSE Program Is Still Broken

Had to vent. I get the privilege of sitting for my NSE5 soon. (it goes to 8 and I have recently made certifications outside of my CISSP CE work a priority). Well, I’m technically an NSE 4 right now thanks to my grandfathered FCNSP. It doesn’t expire for a few months. I was under the impression that my NSE5 would reup the requirements of the lower certs. Apparently, this isn’t the case. Fortinet really needs to get their stuff together when it comes to their certification program. If they want it to be right they should seriously hire me to consult for them in regards.

Also, they need more than ONE guy running the certification department. It shouldn’t take a month to verify your standings and credentials in order to schedule testing for advancement.
