    ACMA (Aruba Certified Mobility Associate)

    ACMA ratifies your technical knowledge about the deployment of WLANs in enterprise environments with a single mobility controller.

    The Aruba-Certified Mobility Associate (ACMA) exam questions cover the topics listed below. The questions include key concepts, networking and topology design, GUI and CLI interpretation, GUI and CLI troubleshooting and interpretation of CLI configuration file segments.

    The Pearson/VUE administered exam consists of 40 multiple-choice questions that must be completed within 60 minutes. The exam fee is $125.

    ACMA tests your knowledge on deploying a single controller WLAN.
