Check out these top 5 reasons to get NCP certified! 


We offer several certification tracks to let you build your hybrid mulitcloud career that meets your current and future goals. Our mid-level certification, the Nutanix Certified Professional (NCP), is designed for IT professionals that have developed on the job experience and are looking to define their career path. 


Here are the top 5 reasons to get your NCP certification:

#1 Define your Own Path. The NCP level lets you focus on specific concentrations so you can focus on a specific technology track, including end user computing, database automation, and data services. Check out our Certification Roadmap or use our Certification Pathfinder to find the right certification for your career goals.

#2: Earn a Higher Salary. The Global Knowledge IT Skills and Salary Survey report has been produced annually for the last 15 years, and has become a benchmark for IT professionals around the world. In their 2021 report, our NCP-MCI certification was ranked the #8 top paying certification! You can read more about that here.

#3: More Options. Position yourself for advancement and expand your opportunities for new tasks or career paths with a verified Nutanix certification. While you may have all the skills that a certified IT professional may have, without the certification, you will have to prove on the job that you know what you’re doing.

#4: Stand Out in the Job Market. Companies around the globe are always looking for candidates with Nutanix experience, so having your NCP certification will help you stand out from your peers in the job market. Of course, experience is a key element, but in the hybrid multicloud world, having your skills validated through this certification will give you a competitive advantage. Once you have your NCP certification, you can add it to your resume and LinkedIn profile so your resume stands out against those without a certification. We even provide certification badges so you can easily share your achievement.

#5 Validate your Skills. Having an NCP certification will validate your professional level skills and prove you’re well-equipped to guide your organization along their hybrid multicloud journey.
