Along with this course update, there’s also an exciting limited-time offer available to complete the beta version of the Nutanix Certified Professional - Database Automation (NCP-DB) v6.5 certification exam. The NCP-DB v6.5 beta exam measures your ability to deploy, administer, optimize, and troubleshoot database workloads using Nutanix Database Service (NDB). 

The NCP-DB v6.5 beta exam is now open for beta testing at no charge! As a beta tester, you get free early access to the exam and help us refine the final version. Don’t wait, this offer is only available to the first 250 participants and ends May 7, 2023.  

Note, the NCP-DB v6 certification will retire on September 15, 2023.

Hi  mostafa_badawi, I believe this has been resolved and your name has been updated to match your ID.  Please allow one business day for responses from the support staff.


For those of us who present the exam, when will the results be ready?
