Plan Your Route to Success

2 New Tools to Help you Choose the Right Nutanix Certification

There are lots of technical certifications in the industry these days, and navigating which one is the best choice for you and your career aspirations can be tricky. There are countless lists of which ones pay the most or cover the “hottest” technology, which ones are “out,” and which ones are the next “must have.”

And while we like appearing on those Top Paying lists, at Nutanix University we recognize that not every certification fits every career.

Nutanix is all about simplifying, so in that spirit, we’re releasing two straightforward tools that can help you decide which Nutanix Certification is going to be the right one for you.

#1 - Our Certification Roadmap

You’ve probably seen flowcharts from other vendors trying to show how their certifications link together and build on each other. Some look like subway diagrams for very large cities, and some are almost too simplified. We aim to strike a balance between those approaches, giving you helpful information about how our programs connect to each other and what paths are currently available for you to follow. There’s also room to expand as the industry and our program grows—so keep an eye out for future updates to come.

#2 - Our Certification Pathfinder

The interactive Certification Pathfinder tool asks 3 simple questions. By considering your experience in the industry, current area of focus, and where you want to go in the future, we can provide a recommendation for which certification(s) would be right for you. Of course, it’s always up to you—use the back button to change your answers, and you’ll get a new set of recommendations. 

Next Step

Once you’ve decided on the right certification plan, visit us at Nutanix University. There’s a wealth of resources, including training course, exam prep, blueprints, and more that can help you get started.

We hope these new tools will help you plan your route to success with Nutanix. And as always, we’re here to help. Our team is available to answer questions on social media, via our Next Community discussion board, and by email
