I’ve added NetApp NCDA to my cert lineup!

May 14, 2012

This past week I traveled to San Antonio, Texas for the NetApp Advanced NCDA bootcamp.  It was pretty hardcore, going from 8am to 6pm everyday and then I spent 3 to 4 hours studying into the wee hours of the night.  Needless to say, my hard work paid off and I passed the NS0-154 exam and gained the NetApp Certified Data Management Administrator certification.  It’s the first storage oriented cert I picked up, it’s way past due, what’s VMware without storage?  A big thanks to my instructor Mark K. for making last week a success, read his bio here, and if you are planning on taking this class make sure Mark is your instructor.  The class was well put together and the course material was easy to read and understand.  It was a first class experience all around.  My only complaint were the carb heavy fried lunches that they brought in for us each day, it was a battle to stay awake after such meals as pizza, lasagna, mac and cheese, garlic bread and a bunch of other sleep inducing lunches.  My advice would be to eat little or find an alternative for what they bring in for lunch.  I owe a thank you to Chris Coleman as well, he helped me along the way to find all the study resources I needed to be successful with NetApp training, thanks a ton Chris.  Last but certainly not least, a big thanks to Insight Investments for sending me to training, and allowing me to broaden my skillset by adding some NetApp knowledge.
