This course is intended for NetApp customers, partners and employees who provide basic support and perform administrative functions of the Data ONTAP 8.1 operating system running in 7-mode and those seeking NCDA certification.

Prior to taking this course, you should have
Three years of experience in a storage related function, such as storage administrator or field engineer Six months experience with NetApp storage solutions Data ONTAP 7-Mode Administration (D7ADM)

NOTE: It is strongly recommended that you have attended the instructor-led D7ADM course or have the equivalent practical experience with the NetApp ONTAP operating system before attending this advanced boot camp. The web-based version of Data ONTAP 7-Mode will not provide sufficient preparation for those seeking NCDA certification upon completion of this course.

This course prepares you for the NetApp NCDA certification
