NSE Training

The Fortinet Network Security Expert (NSE) Program is an 8-level certification program designed for technical professionals interested in independent validation of their network skills and experience. The program includes a wide range of self-paced and instructor-led courses, as well as practical, experiential exercises that demonstrate mastery of complex network security concepts.
The NSE Program is a key part of the Fortinet Partner Program, allowing partners to validate network security skills and experience, leverage Fortinet’s full range of network security products, help accelerate sales, and offer new services. Online portions of the training and certifications are offered free of charge to partners. You can view more information about the program on the Partner Portal.
As an incentive to begin the higher-level certification training before the event, there will be a conference fee discount structure.
