I haven't looked into the training material yet, but troubleshoot Orion at scale is no joke. I hope this test is serious because if it covers the real nitty gritty details and underlying architecture then it could be extremely valuable. If it gets to being on par with a fresh SWI help desk tech then I won't think it's doing any favors to the community.
I tried the exam when it was still in beta without prior training, there were some question from the A&D exam, but the emphasis is on the word „tried“ here...
I'm really happy to see that this cert is covering as wide a range of things as it does. I was worried it might not be as technically rigorous but it appears like they did a good job with the scope and depth of it.
