Nutanix Education is very excited to announce that the Nutanix Certified Professional (NCP) certification exam is now available.

Earning the Nutanix Certified Professional (NCP) certification validates your skills and abilities deploying, administering, and troubleshooting Nutanix AOS 5.5 in the datacenter. Successful candidates are able to deploy and administer Nutanix AOS 5.5 nodes, blocks and clusters; and can use Prism Element to monitor, manage, troubleshoot, and administer AHV hosts and virtual machines.

There is no cost to take the new exam through November 27.

The new certification exam differs from the NPP program in three key ways to increase the trust in – and value of – your Nutanix certification:

The development method used for NCP was a more formal and rigorously documented process. The brings the NCP in line with industry standards that are used by almost all major IT certification programs. *

The NCP exam will be proctored, which means no outside resources may be used to complete the exam. The proctoring system we are using for the NCP exam monitors behavior during the exam and also confirms the identity of who is taking the exam. *

Remote proctoring allows us to offer the NCP exam anywhere, meaning you don’t have to travel to a testing center in another city or state. This system gives us the flexibility to offer exams as widely as possible, while maintaining a secure environment. *

The NPP certification exam will be retired on October 1, 2018. If you are currently preparing for that exam, you must complete your test before that date.
