Help build the future NCP!


The Nutanix Certification team has been busy developing an update for the Nutanix Certified Professional (NCP) program to cover AOS 5.10 – and it’s now ready for beta testing at no charge.

But there is a catch – the beta exam is only open to the first 100 people to complete it. After that, we’ll pull the results and begin working towards the live exam.

Beta testers are also a critical part of the exam development process, and Nutanix is one of the few companies to open this process to the public. We hope you’ll take part and support the program’s success.

To get started,

 

  1. Review the exam blueprint guide
  2. Register just like you would any other exam
  3. Enter discount code M9FSPDCY at check out to remove the exam fee

 

 

 

Frequently asked questions


How do Beta Exams differ from Live Exams?
Beta exams are a little different from a fully live (or GA) exam, in a couple of ways.

First, they have more questions and you’ll have longer to complete it. This lets us see which questions perform well and can be used on the live exam and which should be removed.

Unlike a live exam, you won’t receive a score right away. That will come after we analyze the results, which means there is a short delay between when you complete the exam and when you receive your results (typically around 4 weeks). But you can rest assured, passing the beta version of an exam gives you the same certification as passing the live exam.

The final difference between a beta exam and the live is exam is the price – beta exams are completely free! That’s right, you could earn the latest version of the NCP before everyone else and pay nothing for it.


Why should I take this exam if I’m already an NCP?
Passing the v5.10 version of the exam is an excellent way to show your employers, customers, and colleagues that you are committed to staying current on Nutanix technology.

@JOS7 yes, the exam is remotely proctored just like the regular NCP exam
@BG76 That's correct. It's open for the first 100 to complete the exam, not to register/schedule it. So, if 100 people complete it before your date, the exam will be closed.
Thanks for the clarification. I'll reschedule now 🙂.

For @Muhammad Usman Ayub and anyone else who took the beta exam - you’ll receive your results close to when we release the GA exam to the public. Part of the process they are doing now to finalize everything includes determining the passing score based on your input.

Results for beta exam participants will be sent out once the GA exam is released, which should be happening soon.

Hi

 

I have just noticed when going on Nutanix education that there is now a NCAP 5.10 Beta exam available. What happened to the NCP 5.10 exam? I have passed the NCP 5.5. Will I still have option to take 5.10?

 

Thanks

Exam Passed!

Passed :smiley:

Passed :)

Hi

But the discount code is not working.


thanks
The Code is not valid one.

Received certification for beta exam. Certificate is awarded as “Nutanix Certified Advanced Professional (NCAP) 5.10 Beta Exam”.

 

Can someone please confirm if it is NCP or NCAP 5.10?

 

Is there any difference between general certification and beta exam?

 

Thanks in advance.

excuse me the exam is with supervision like normal exams ??

Me too.

I think it's a mistake. I open a case Yesterday.

For those who had got results for this beta exam, when did you take this exam? I did take this exam at .NEXT Copenhagen on 10th October and still waiting my results..

I believe results are sent out to 1st 100 candidates as per the announcement.

 

Some of my colleagues also didn’t receive the result who attempted this exam.

Thanks you very much for replying!

I think that result should be sent all who are taken these beta exams anyways.. Here is the text what I got after finishing test (the result page) in .NEXT Copenhagen:

“Thank you for participating in the Nutanix Certified Professional 5.10 beta exam. As this is a beta exam, you will not receive your score immediately. Your results, along with the results of the other beta participants, will be analyzed to determine the final set of questions. You will then be scored against this set and receive your results. This process can take 4-6 weeks, and you will receive your results before the final exam is live. If your final result indicates you have passed the exam, you will be awarded the certification and will not need to take the live exam.”

I hope that results are sent to me and the others as well. If not I don’t see why to participate these anymore (Yes, these are free but still)..

The email I received states, "the beta exam is only open to the first 100 people to complete it." I scheduled my exam in October. Does that mean even though I scheduled my exam, if 100 people complete it before me, my exam could be closed before the date I chose? Or am I good since I was able to schedule it?
