NetApp Certified Storage Associate (NCSA)

By becoming a NetApp Certified Storage Associate (NCSA) you will be able to exhibit a basic understanding of NetApp storage systems and Data ONTAP administration and management solutions. You will understand the components and functions of 7-Mode and clustered Data ONTAP, and perform basic administration of NetApp storage controllers running the Data ONTAP operating system in NFS and Windows® (CIFS) multiprotocol environments.

NetApp Certified Storage Associate Certification Requirements

The NetApp Certified Storage Associate certification is the foundational NetApp certification. Although the NCSA is an entry-level storage administration certification, it is a challenging exam that will test your knowledge of the storage industry and specific elements 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 NCSA Certification exam to greatly improve your odds of success.
