Hi! You may have noticed something a little different about the forum today: we've updated the name to Nutanix Certified Professional (NCP).

NCP is the successor to the NPP program, and it covers deploying, administering, and troubleshooting Nutanix AOS 5.5 in the datacenter.

Will I have to upgrade the NPP 5.0 certification to the NCP?

Hi - the choice to upgrade or not is a personal one that depends on many factors: What version are you using in your day to day work? Do you work for a Nutanix Partner? Are you planning to pursue NCAP or NPX certification? When did you earn NPP 5.0? Is your employer looking for you to demonstrate up to the minute certification?

I understood. We are in version 5.6 (will be updated to 5.8), No. I do not work in a Nutanix partner, but would like to work one day. I did the NPP exam in May 2018.

I plan to get NCAP ( in future)

thanks for helping me.

Hi Vincent,

The NCP exam blueprint guide will show you what's covered on the exam and may help answer your question.

Hopefully some others who've taken both exams will see your questions and weigh in as well.

The NCP exam is free until November 27, after that it will cost $199 per attempt.
I took it last night, it was a lot harder than the NPP (obviously). I did not pass (barely), I was second guessing myself constantly and would have passed if I had focused on some things I thought I had down pat. Suffice it to say, I hope they look at extending the free period until next year which would be nice. **hint** **hint**
