NetApp University is in the process of refreshing the FlexPod certification exams.

 

CERTIFICATION

CURRENT EXAM

NEW EXAM

Cisco and NetApp FlexPod Design Specialist

NS0-170

NS0-173

Cisco and NetApp FlexPod Implementation and Administration Specialist

NS0-171

NS0-174

 

The refreshed FlexPod exams include questions on the latest NetApp ONTAP software and AFF hardware, updated information for Cisco servers and fabric interconnects, and new validated designs. Watch for upcoming training on the new topics and exams.

Both versions of these exams will be available at Insight 2018 in Las Vegas and Barcelona—so candidates can choose which exam they would like to take. Please note that partners are required to renew their FlexPod certifications every 2 years, so this event is a great opportunity for them to renew their certification to satisfy partner program requirements. The current versions of the FlexPod exams will be available through 2018.

 

Make sure you review the updated Reference Document.

Preparation sessions will also be offered at Insight!

 

Good luck!

So i'm already registered for the 170 and 171.    What's the best way to change to the newer tests?   I fear if I cancel my existing seats i'll loose them when I try and re-register.

Hi @SpindleNinja,

It doesn't matter which one you write, they both have the same value and validity. 

IMHO, you should just proceed with the ones you registered to.
