Greetings,  The certification I would recommend to get familiar with storage is the NetApp Certified Storage Associate. The learning path provides knowledge and hands on experience for performing basic administration of both Data 7-Mode and clustered Data ONTAP. You can find more information on it and other certifications on our website here: http://www.netapp.com/us/services-support/university/certification.aspx   Hope this helps.  Ivel

Thanks ,

Is it NS0-145 Certification ?

Also will it cover CIFS syllabus?

Correct. That is the exam.

After that, you can work your way up the chart. What FAS system are you administering? What OS version are you running, 7-Mode or Clustered Data ONTAP? You can get the next certification for the OS and finally NCIE for either backup\DR or SAN technologies if you're running FC\iSCSI\FCoE.

Thanks sir

So, It is possible to take exam NS0-155 or NS0-156 directly ?

Yes, you can take the NCDA 155 and\or 156 directly. There is no requirement to get the NCSA (145) first.

Thanks and please advise which certification i can take?

NS0-145

NCDA 155

NCDA 156


Balaji,

You can take either one of those. You will have to look at the requirements and decided which one you're prepared for.

Thank you

What is diff between these three certifications?

NS0-145

NCDA 155

NCDA 156

I highly recommend you visit the NetApp University site and review.

The associate certification would be more entry level.

Hello,

 

I am also new to NetApp community, can you please guide me to the study material for the below certification.

 

NS0-145 exam is for NetApp Certified Storage Associate (NCSA)

 

Also, can I take this exam directly without official training?

 

 

 

Thanks

Hi, fyi you can find plenty of great NetApp videos on YouTube that will help if you don't have access to formal NetApp classes. Also, I highly recommend setting up a NetApp Simulator environment in VMware to get hands on experience and learn the product before attempting any of the certification exams.

ncda is best for you. If you have experience in networking and linux administration.
