NCP 5.15 Beta Exam Now Available

Userlevel 2

Update: As of 4/20/2020 the beta exam is full and no longer accepting registrations

Be one of the first to experience the NCP v5.15 certification exam!

Nutanix University has been busy updating the Nutanix Certified Professional (NCP) program to cover AOS 5.15 – and it’s now ready for beta testing at no charge to you!

But don’t delay – the beta exam is only open to the first 100 people to complete it before May 30th. 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!


Getting Started is as easy as 1-2-3

  2. Register just like you would any other exam (Partners, please try this link if the other does not work for you)
  3. Enter discount code NCP515BETAFREE at checkout 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 5?

Passing the v5.15 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. It’s also a great way to support the Nutanix certification community.

Hi Suresh,

i guess that is the standard procedure.

To do the exam you should login with a registered valid account.

I suggest to open a request to and ask for alternatives.

Have a nice day

I see "Nutanix Certified Professional 5.15 Beta" on the exams page, but I click Take An Exam and the page does not load.
The new tab that it opens is trying to get to and gets the following error:

504 Gateway Time-out
The server didn't respond in time.

Registered for 5.10 and we cant take 5.15, then it is mandatory  for 5.10 as well?



Getting the same 504 error here as well.
