The SCSM Assessment Test is for students at the intermediate level with a time limit of 20-minutes. Knowing the concepts related to network system service management and the current version of the Information Technology Infrastructure Library is helpful. With this basic understanding, the time frame given for the assessment is reasonable should you need to double-check or research questions as you progress through the exam. Completing the lab will help students develop skills in modifying existing programs that process multiple inputs, including command-line arguments and environmental variables. The assessment will also ensure that they know the relevant concepts within the network security architecture, such as components, topologies, and protocols, as well as the principles, models, methods, and tools of the network systems management platform. These skills are essential for the Systems Security Analyst, Network Operations Specialist, and Software Developer. Students will also develop skills in determining how operational and environmental changes affect the outcome of how security systems should work, which is essential for the SCSM Engineer, System Engineer, IT Generalist, and IT Support Engineer work roles. This lab is beneficial for the Network Engineer career path.
