Hello -

Does anyone know if Nutanix will offer a more advanced certification track like Vmware's VCAP / VCIX?

I'm working on putting together a study group for the NPX certification. See the site here.

The next certification step after Nutanix Platform Professional (NPP) is Nutanix Support Specialist (NSS). As the name implies, we originally developed this certification for people that require a more in-depth understanding of the Nutanix system because they are engaged in technical support. Our own Nutanix System Reliability Engineers go through this curriculum and certification program.

We are updating the course associated with the NSS certification and will be offering it to customers as well as partners. The updated course should be available starting in June.

Finally, while not required, the NSS training and certification will help you prepare for the hands-on portion of the Nutanix Platform Expert (NPX) Design Review. See the NPX Forum for more info about the NPX progam.

Hi, Thu.

Great question. I'm glad to see that you're interested in moving forward with your Nutanix certification journey, beyond NPP.

Here is a little information regarding the NSS certification:1. It is only open to students who have attended a Nutanix L1/L2 support class (this class requires an NPP to attend).2. The class is only available in an instructor-led format (not online via eLearning).3. The certification requires two exams: a multiple-choice, and a practical.

For more information, such as pricing and scheduling options for the class, please contact
