SNIA certifications address the vendor-neutral baseline storage networking knowledge and skill that is vendor-neutral. SNIA certifications will prepare you to put the individual product nuances for each vendor into a context in the industry. To be successful in your career, it is necessary to understand how the storage products fit together in a multi-vendor environment. SNIA Education provides the framework for a general understanding of storage networking concepts, troubleshooting, management and administration and architecture. The knowledge and skills the you receive from the vendor training and certification makes you better prepared to architect and deliver a full multi-vendor solution. So, SNIA certifications PLUS the select vendor Certifications give you the expertise to become a SNIA Storage Networking Expert (SCSN-E).
SNIA would suggest that you review the Certification Roadmap found here and some of the suggested training materials. We also encourage you to contact our authorized training partners here. Also, please look at the Storage Networking and Information Primer page to get you started with some resources that will aid your learning. You MUST either have earned the SCSP credential or the CompTIA Storage+ Powered by SNIA credential as it is a pre-requisite for our higher level credentials. You will find an outline of what is covered on the current CompTIA Storage+ Powered by SNIA exam as well as a list of references and study material here.
Once you have fulfilled the requirements for the SNIA Expert credential (SCSN-E) found here, you must email a .pdf copy or scan a paper copy of your SNIA Certification Partner credential to email@example.com. It will be processed by SNIA and you will receive a .pdf of your SCSN-E certificate.
SNIA promotes "green" processes whenever it can. Our SNIA certificates come in the form of a pdf. Along with that, you get the SNIA logos to put on your business cards, stationery, or badges.
Your certificate will be sent to the email address that you entered into the Prometric system. So, if your certificate does not appear, please check the email account that you gave to Prometric. Also, please look in your SPAM folder, or check with your email provider to see if attachments are blocked. Many times Yahoo customers have problems receiving our attachments. If you want a different email associated with your certification, please send us the alternate email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You also must change it in your Prometric Student Profile.
The name that will appear on your certificate is the name that you put into the Prometric system when you register for your first test and get your student ID. If you need to change the name on your certificate for a misspelling, SNIA will change it in our records, but you must also contact www.prometric.com and change your student ID information as well.
It is the policy of SNIA to revoke or refuse a credential to any person suspected of using unauthorized materials obtained using websites that advertise exact copies of SNIA exams. Psychometric data from a person's testing session will isolate patterns of cheating and gives SNIA the right to take legal action.
If you take a SNIA exam and do not pass it, SNIA requires that you wait 24 hours before taking it again. If you do not pass the exam a second time, you must wait seven (7) days. If a SNIA Exam is taken three (3) times without a passing score, you must wait 30 days to take it again.
