NCDA auto extension with NCIE

Did you know, if you’ll pass NCIE (DP or SAN) AND you still have not expired yet NCDA, you automatically get certification extension (from higher-level certification) for NCDA with the same dates as NCIE?

To check:

In my case, both NCDA ONTAP & NCIE SAN ONTAP get 2018-Oct-23:

ncie san ontap

  • NetApp Certified Implementation Engineer – Data Protection Specialist (NCIE DP)
  • NetApp Certified Implementation Engineer – SAN Specialist, ONTAP (NCIE SAN)
