log into nu school and search for

ECA 5.5 Course

There should be at least 5 modules.

The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Administration (ECA) 5.5 course is designed to train administrators (system, network, and storage) to successfully deploy Nutanix in the datacenter. The course covers all of the tasks Nutanix administrators perform, including configuring and maintaining a Nutanix environment.

Earning the Nutanix Certified Professional (NCP) certification validates your skills and abilities deploying, administering, and troubleshooting Nutanix AOS 5.5 in the datacenter. Successful candidates are able to deploy and administer Nutanix AOS 5.5 nodes, blocks, and clusters; and can use Prism Element to monitor, manage, troubleshoot, and administer AHV hosts and virtual machines.
This is for NCP. I am looking for NCAP.
Hello Pravin,

Are the questions same or different between NPP and NCP certification?

The specific answer to your question is no, there doesn't seem to be any NCAP specific modules in nu.school.

The exam blue print for NCAP is here; https://nuschool.portal.relayware.com/content/EDUCollateral/NCAP5.5-EBGBeta-09.03.2018.pdf

The exam blueprints for all exams are here; https://www.nutanix.com/support-services/training-certification/certifications/

It is recommended that you attend the Nutanix®️ Advanced Administration and Performance Management [V5.5] class.

I do not see any specific NCAP modules in nu.school; if I do a search in there on NCAP there are zero modules.

The NCAP exam is free (for now), proctored, and contains 130 multiple choice and multiple response questions. You are allotted 180 minutes.

The Exam Blueprint has links to lots of training / study materials.

If this helps, please consider marking this response as the "answer".
NCAP exam is currently not available for global audience. Please let me know when this exam will be released??
There is a link about NCAP - https://next.nutanix.com/education-news-and-announcements-57/nutanix-certified-advanced-professional-ncap-is-here-31554
Unfortunetly I didn't find how to take NCAP from it.

I was able to book my NCAP without doing the course, it's recommended not mandatory. Maybe because I'm in UK and it's a class only course in the US?

It's potentially a risk not taking the course i suppose but then I passed NCP with a score of 4715 and have 5 years experience of the platform so you'd hope I have a good chance of passing the NCAP without a course!
