The SNIA Storage Networking Certification Program (SNCP) provides a strong foundation of vendor-neutral, systems-level credentials that integrate with and complement individual vendor certifications. Its four credentials – SNIA Certified Storage Professional; SNIA Certified Storage Engineer; SNIA Certified Storage Architect; and SNIA Certified Storage Networking Expert – reflect the advancement and growth of storage networking technologies, and establish a uniform standard by which individual knowledge and skill sets can be evaluated, thereby providing employers in the storage industry with an independent assessment of the individual.
Should you become certified? With heterogeneous data centers as the de facto environment today, IT certification can be of great value especially if it’s in a career area where you are trying to advance, and even more importantly if it is a vendor-neutral certification which complements specific product skills. And with surveys saying IT storage professionals may anticipate six-figure salaries, going for certification seems like a good idea. Don’t just take our word for it – CIO Magazine has cited SNIA Certified Storage Networking Expert (SCSN-E) as #2 of their top seven storage certifications – and the way to join an elite group of storage professionals at the top of their games.
SNIA now makes it even easier to take its three exams – Foundations; Management/Administration; and Assessment, Planning, and Design. Exams are now available for on-site test takers globally via a new relationship with Kryterion Testing Network.
