Legacy & New Exams

Many of the Symantec certification exams will be replaced by a newer product version of the exam as technology and trends continue to evolve. Legacy exams may still be available on Pearson VUE’s website, as Symantec recognizes that legacy product versions continue to hold their value in the marketplace as long as there is demand from the industry.

To prepare for certification exams, we encourage you to review the Certification Exam Page for more information. Additionally study of the course content, exam objectives, sample questions, product documentation, and on-the-job experience, are also recommended. Be cautioned that attendance in a training course does not guarantee passage of a certification exam.
