Off to the Academy

The NSE Xperts Academy is a premiere and exclusive training event for Fortinet’s top partner sales engineers in the United States. Since the inaugural event in October 2015, NSE Xperts Academy, formally known as Xtreme, has transformed partners into Fortinet “Xperts” in many ways:
  • Business Growth: The academy provides partners the opportunity to extend their vision, acquire new technical skills, advance their expertise in cutting-edge Fortinet technologies, and ultimately grow their business
  • Personal Growth: Partners will walk away with knowledge to continue their Fortinet Network Security Expert (NSE) certification path, which is highly respected in the industry. An onsite Pearson VUE testing center will be available, free of charge, for partners to test newly acquired knowledge and skills. They will also develop closer relationships with industry colleagues and the Fortinet team.
