156-820.77 MDM with VSX after CCSE R80

Hello guys,Just a small question that came into my mind. I'm currently thinking about attending the course for the 156-820.77 Multi-Domain Security Management with Virtual System Extension, together with the exam.As far as I understand this course is only available for the R77 release and therefore the certification exam will be R77 related - together with the cert in the end. My "problem", or more or less question, is; is it possible to attend to this exam without having a R77 CCSE but only a R80 one? And if that should be possible - will it extend my R80 CCSE or does it count as a separate track on its own, as it is R77 based? And lastly, are there any plans to release that course and exam for the R80 track?Regards


Hi Team,I have given CCSA exam before last week but till now, I haven't received certificate. Also, In my Checkpoint Account, it shows that "According to our records, no certification information was found for Please, let me know what should I do? I want to give CCSE exam based on this. I have appeared exam through Pearson Vue. I also have passing score and copy of this score.@Jason_Tugwell Thanks & Regards,Manish Bhanushali

CCSE R80 - Study Recommendations

Hey guys,I am planning to achieve the CCSE R80 in the upcoming months, this summer.In about 2 weeks I will attend the official training to get a first overview and look into the topics.After pre-checking the CCSE R80 website I realized that the study guide is outdated and still refering to the R77 exam. So I searched through CheckMates and found out, that the R80 CCSE study guide is still in development and the currently available study methods appear to be:- the offcial training- the test exam (after studying, to verify your knowledge)- the exam overview that lists all the topicsNow my question is, do you guys have any recommendations do study for the CCSE R80 right now? I achieved my CCSA R80 about one year ago and never really worked with systems under R80 (except 64k appliances that run 76.50, but the management server is running R80 or some lab environments). So I am not sure if the "outdated" study guide is still fine to use.If you can recommend me any books or video courses (or websites/in general any information) I'd be very glad.Thanks in advance and best regards,Maik

CCSE update for 2020?

When will the CCSE content be updated?  I read that it's based on R80.10. We are looking forward to R80.40, so I'm wondering if I should hold off until the course includes it.

CPX exam certification

Hello, I am trying to find out if Check Point is again offering the extended certification for taking your exam at CPX like they have done in years past. I can't find anything on it for New Orleans, and from what I heard it was not possible to take the CCSM exam in person at Las Vegas last year. If anyone has the answer to if I can take my CCSM in New Orleans and it be valid for 3 years, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hackingpoint courses

I just wanted to ask if the hackingpoint courses ( teach the attendants defense in addition to attack.I have already had a browse over the curriculum and I see that most of the learning objectives involve attacks but I would be equally interested in learning how to defend against every attack covered so I was wondering if somebody could confirm for me that attacks AND methods of defense are included in those courses.Thanks in advance.

ebook 80.10

Hello,One month ago I followed the course CCSA 80.20 (3 days). No students were able to use the ebooks during the course.It is a long story (and it shouldnt have been for just a ebook !) but I will try to summarise it. A bit shameful for Checkpoint... It takes a lot of energy to just open a pdf file...First of all, the given link to the students was 80.10 and we are following the 80.20 course with an instructor ebook 80.20. Very logical.2 weeks before the course our partner (company which organise the course) asked us to register for the ebookOne week before the course, we informed our partne it was impossible to open the ebook. No solution was found.Then, at the beginning of the course, we struggled and didn't succeed to use the ebook.3 weeks after the course, even if the partner contacted Cisco, we still can not use the ebook. We were asked to use an old version of Capsule Docs Viewer. The file is still protected.At the end of the CCSA course, I was asked if I wanted to follow the CCSE course. For sure, not in such conditions !Seriously, if you want to reach customer satisfaction, you have a lot to improve.
