NetApp Certified Storage Associate (NCSA)

NetApp Certified Storage Associates demonstrate a basic understanding of NetApp storage systems and Data ONTAP administration and management solutions. They understand the features and functions of 7-Mode and clustered Data ONTAP, and are able to perform basic administration of NetApp storage controllers running the Data ONTAP® operating system in NFS and Windows® (CIFS) multi-protocol environments.

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 year's experience with NetApp storage, we strongly recommend you take the training before you take the exam in order 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.
