Advice on which NetApp course for SQL Server DBA


I am the staff DBA at a company that utilizes NetApp. I would like to attend NetApp training to accomplish the following tasks in my position. Please recommend the NetApp courses I would attend. I will not be setting anything up as it pertains to LUNs, disks, etc. My work will be SQL Server backups and restores, along with creating clones for developer testing areas.

     -- Microsoft SQL Server related

     -- Use SnapCenter and SnapManager (we use both) to monitor already-established backups (by the storage admin here), but be able to restore them myself.

     -- Create (Flex) clones for developers and engineers to use.




There is some free web-based training at NetApp University on Data Protection Fundamentals HERE that may tick some of your boxes, so to speak. You might also find these Technical Reports (TRs) useful as well:
