NCSA Requirements

NCSA is the foundational NetApp certification. The training listed below will prepare you for the NCSA exam. Though the NCSA is an entry-level storage administration certification, it is a rigorous exam that will test your knowledge of the storage industry and specific features and functions of NetApp solutions. If you do not have at least 2 years of experience with NetApp storage, we strongly recommend you take the training before you take the exam to ensure your success.

For qualified academic institutions we offer a fully web-based version of the courses and labs – for more information, visit our Academic Alliances site.

Logos and certificates will be granted to those individuals who successfully pass the NS0-145 exam.
