301A: BIG-IP LTM Specialist: Architect, Setup, and Deploy

301A: BIG-IP LTM Specialist: Architect, Setup, and Deploy Course

301A: BIG-IP LTM Specialist: Architect, Setup, and Deploy Training

The 301A BIG-IP LTM Specialist is the first exam of two exams to get F5 Big-IP LTM Certified Technical Specialist.

During the 301A BIG-IP, LTM Specialist certification training course participants will learn SNAT configuration, steps necessary to configure AVR, SSL requirements, and virtual server configuration settings. By attending this course, candidates will gain knowledge on how to configure remote authentication and multiple administration roles on the LTM device, deploy or upgrade vCMP guests, and LTM device performance and more.

Achieving the F5-CTS, BIG-IP LTM certification is a prerequisite for both the Cloud and Security Solutions Expert certification tracks.

Valid F5-CA, BIG-IP Certification

Candidates can achieve this certification by passing the following exam.

  • 301A–BIG-IP LTM Specialist: Architect, Setup, and Deploy
