Splunk Enterprise Security Admin Certification requirements

Hi,

I was trying to figure out the pre-requisites for appearing for the Splunk Enterprise Security admin certification exam, below is a snip from the PDF provided by Splunk

ES-admin-path.PNG

I have the following questions:

1. Does this mean that to appear for the Splunk ES Admin certification I do not need any previous Splunk certification ?

2. Do I have to buy any of the courses from Splunk to be eligible to appear for the Splunk Enterprise Admin certification exam ? Because the courses mentioned in both the tracks are recommended.

If I have understood this correctly, I plan on buying the Administering Splunk Enterprise Security course from Splunk and then appearing for the certification exam. (Please note I do not have any previous Splunk certification)

Thanks,
