The Nutanix Certified Professional Certification (NCP) certifications validate your abilities in management, skills, knowledge, and expertise required to deploy, administer, troubleshoot and maintain a Nutanix ACX environment. This training program is the culmination of over 6 years of research and development and covers all areas of business that make up a high-end virtualization solution for applications. This training program will prepare you to handle both private and public cloud services within a Nutanix infrastructure. This program consists of two parts – the training course and the Exam. Both are designed for people who want to learn and master the skills required to perform tasks within a Nutanix environment. The courses are designed to be interactive and user-friendly for people who have little to no knowledge of this type of technology.

Training can be done by enrolling in a course or the Exam. The course is offered online with full support and guidance via email, phone, or video. A training course consists of over 45 hours of classroom instruction, hands-on exercises, case studies, and tests. The program also has a final exam where you will receive the NCP-5.15 certification. The exam covers a wide variety of topics, including application deployment, virtualization services, server administration, and other topics. To successfully complete the exam, you will need to pass a two-part test that covers the subjects covered in the course. It also requires knowledge of the application components of Nutanix software and knowledge of how to use Nutanix infrastructure.

In order to gain an NCP-5.15 certification, you must be a registered Nutanix Professional by providing evidence of having the proper education and work experience. You will also need to pass a pre-test to confirm your eligibility. Once you are eligible, you can continue to practice for the test as many times as you like. Passing the exam will earn you a permanent NCP certification that is accepted by the Nutanix Professional Membership Organization. It will also provide you with the information needed to open up further career opportunities for yourself within the Nutanix organization.
