Accelerated NCDA Boot Camp Data ONTAP 7-Mode (ANCDA) Overview:

Accelerated NCDA Boot Camp Data ONTAP 7-Mode (ANCDA) is a 5-day, extended hour bootcamp that expands upon what students learned in the D7ADM course in order to prepare for the NCDA 7-mode certification exam.

Who Should Attend:

  • Administrators who provide basic support and perform administrative functions of the Data ONTAP 8.2 operating system running in 7-mode and those seeking NCDA certification.

Accelerated NCDA Boot Camp Data ONTAP 7-Mode (ANCDA) Certifications:
