NetApp Extends Certification Expiration Dates by 6 Months


As the world responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, our top priority is supporting our employees, partners, and customers who are faced daily with new challenges.  NetApp University is extending the expiration date for all certifications set to expire in the year 2020 (January 1 to December 31, 2020) by 6 months (180 days).  The extension will automatically be applied to your CertMetrics account which you can view/access through CertCenter. This does not require any action on your part.


For example, if your certification expired in February 2020, that certification status will no longer show as expired and you have been granted until July 2020 to re-up your credential. If you have a certification that is set to expire on December 31, 2020, the new expiration date will be set to April 2021.


NetApp University has partnered with PearsonVUE to make remote testing through OnVUE available so that our users are able to take their certification exams from their home or office locations using a remote proctor.


We hope that this will help you on your certification journey during this challenging time!  Please take advantage of our full portfolio of free online training as you prepare to successfully take your certification exams.  You can find more information on NetApp certifications, including recommended preparation, on the NetApp University Certification page.
