Happy to hear you are enjoying the All-Access Training Pass and getting a lot of value out of it!
You are correct, right now we do not have an On-Demand version of the Data Center Automation Using Juniper Apstra course. The Apstra product is being updating very often and we are working hard to keep the instructor-led version up-to-date. Once the product gets to a place where it is not changing so much we will be able to create an On-Demand version. There are some online topics available in the Learning Portal: Introduction to Juniper Apstra Fabric Conductor, Implementing Juniper Apstra Fabric Conductor & Understanding Intent-based Networking. These do cover Apstra, but are not as comprehensive or current as the Instructor-led course. We also have a recorded webcast in planning, so you can keep an eye out for that too.
Regarding the On-Demand version JNCIS-Devops, the Instructor version of Junos Platform Automation and DevOps was updated earlier this year, and we are working on the On-Demand version now. It is tentatively scheduled for release in a couple of months.
Hope this information is useful, and thanks for reaching out.

Subject: Feedback on AAP after 8 months of use
Overall, Juniper Education has knocked it out of the park with this offering. The cost was $6,000 but my dashboard is showing I have roughly 160 hours of study time and roughly $28k in realized value. The labs associated with each course are great 98% of the time and the AAP material is generally all that is needed to pass the exams. At the current point of my journey, I've achieved 6-7 certs (A-P) and am now waiting on JNCIE-DC to be updated in July.
This brings me to the one criticism I have, which is that the on-demand courses for certain technologies are either non-existent and/or take forever to be updated compared to ILO. For example:
- There are ZERO on-demand courses for Apstra, which will desperately be needed for the new JNCIE-DC (the old AOS courses don't count :P).
- JNCIS-DevOps On-Demand is like 3-4 years outdated and also really needs a refresh.
In the meantime, I've started JNCIA-Cloud and JNCDA, both of which I won't be continuing as they aren't that interesting to me.
Finally, I'd like to extend my congratulations to Juniper Education Services for putting together such a high-value training package. My rating is a solid 9.5/10, which can be raised to a 10/10 should the small criticism above be remedied in the new future. No other vendor can offer anything remotely close to this. As a result, I'm going to be renewing for another year very shortly.
