New Certification Out Now! Introducing NCM-MCI!
Userlevel 1

This post was written by Jill Liles, Sr Marketing Manager for Nutanix University

Nutanix University is excited to announce that the Nutanix Certified Advanced Professional (NCAP) 5.15 exam is now open for registration. And, that it has a new name:

Introducing Nutanix Certified Master - Multicloud Infrastructure (NCM-MCI)


This is still the same certification you know and love, the new name better reflects the technology and skill set of the certification holders!


NCP-MCI 5.x certification holders have the demonstrated ability to perform complex administrative tasks on a Nutanix Cluster, as well as optimize both virtualized workloads and infrastructure components in an AOS deployment.


For more information on the new exam download the exam blueprint guide or enroll in the Nutanix University learning path for related training, videos, practice exams and more.  


Retirement of the 5.10 Exam Version


As usual, when we release a new exam version, that also means the older version will soon retire. The NCAP 5.10 exam will no longer be offered after October 18, 2020.

If you’ve been studying and preparing for that version of the exam you can still take it between now and then. But, you can also transfer to the 5.15 exam if you would like. Contact if you have any questions.

Hi @SaadAzam can I take the NCAP exam before October 18? I put it over December 15, or should I better change for Nutanix Certified Master - Multicloud Infrastructure (NCM-MCI) same date?


Up to you. I would advise taking the NCM-MCI as it will last longer.

@Pedro Pecci 

The better option would be to take the Nutanix Certified Master - Multicloud Infrastructure (NCM-MCI)!

Hi Guys, While I was thinking what to do, Nutanix automatically replace my exam for the same date, so nothing else to do, 

Thank you!

I had done NCP-MCI 5.15 in Oct, 2020. Is it discontinued? or NCP is replaced by NCM?

No, NCM still active. 

Now it holds position between NCP-MCI and NCX-MCI.
