Re-certification patch


I currently have the  NetApp Certified Data Administrator, ONTAP(NS0-161)  and  NetApp Certified Implementation Engineer SAN Specialist, ONTAP(NS0-161) and both are about to expire.


I wanted to know if I am able to renew both of them by taking the NetApp Certified Technology Associate(NS0-002) exam? since t his is in the same data path



I took NetApp Certified Implementation Engineer SAN Specialist exam last month and both certs get extended.


Hope this answers your question.

So I already have the Professional and Specialist Certification and  my question is that will i be able to renew both the certifications by taking the the Associate Exam?




I think the answer is no, lower level exam never extend higher level certification. Is like taking Cisco CCNA exam and expect the CCNP certs get extended but i recommend you contact


If possible let us know the answer so that other members of the community can benefit.


Hope this help.
