Hi there !


i am new to NetApp storage, can you one guide me from where i should i start learning. i am new to storage and i want some to do certification so my future can be secure

i will really appricate if you guys can provide me tutorial links or can explain me path for certification



NetAppU is also a good place to start:  https://www.netapp.com/us/services-support/university/index.aspx  








Look at the ONTAP documentation. To pass most of the CERT exams, you will need hands-on experience. 


Thanks for the reply but would you able to suggest which certification i can start as a beginner ? i checked the link and it has many certification so i am totally confused which way i should i start .. ? i do have understanding of provisioning storage


The NCTA and NCDA are the best places to start.   

See here:  https://www.netapp.com/us/services-support/university/certification/index.aspx  


NCTA is the tech overview of NetApp,   NCDA is the ONTAP admin cert.  

Also, your account team may know of some trainings or be able to offer them.
