Praise for the previous version of the course:

"Just completed NetApp Storage training! I found the instructor Neil Anderson to be amazing. He's extremely competent, has spent time in the industry, and knows the platform very well. He colors the materials with some real world examples, which is always helpful to understand the differences between doing something in the lab and doing it in the real world.

I manage several NetApp arrays, and found myself going to the real platform to see how we've implemented the concepts presented here. Very happy I picked up this course!"

- Charles Lawton

We're going to go through the complete configuration of the system in a logical manner, from taking it out of the box to the final tweaks to ensure best performance and availability, and covering off all the NetApp features as we go.

Your learning of each technology is broken down into 5 parts to make it easy to understand and retain the knowledge:

  1. A full video explanation of the feature.
  2. A live lab video demo using the System Manager GUI
  3. A live lab video demo using the Command Line Interface.
  4. Take a quiz to check your understanding.
  5. Perform the supplied hands-on lab exercise to deepen your new real world skills.

Because the course is laid out in a logical step by step manner it also makes it easy to pick and choose the lessons which are relevant for you. If there's a feature you already know well or you don't want to see the Command Line configuration, just skip those parts without missing anything else. You can always come back later.

"My company sent me to the one week official NetApp class but in my opinion this is better, he covers much more detail than they covered in the official class. I took this class to prepare for the NetApp certification which I just obtained on Friday."

- Glenn Reed

This training gives you all the content (plus more) that you would get from these classroom courses:


On top of the amazing value, you also get these added benefits:

  • You get more in-depth coverage of the technologies because we’re not constrained by the traditional 9-5 class schedule.
  • This course is up to date, focusing on ONTAP 9.5.
  • You get access to the course forever.
  • I make the technology easy to understand, have real world experience, and genuinely care about giving you a first class training experience. You don’t know what instructor you’ll get when you take classroom training.

"One of the best courses I've taken. Neil is clear and highly knowledgeable. He explains complex Netapp concepts and breaks them down into digestible easy to understand chunks. I've taken NetApp Boot camps that are too fast paced but this is perfect. The course exceeded all expectations."

- William Mark

Is there an easy way to pay for the course?

Ask your work if they can pay for it or if you can put it on expenses. Your workplace is used to paying over $4000 to send you on a 5 day training course and they have to cover your absence for a week. Telling your manager you can get 13 days and $12,000 worth of top quality training for just $199 and it won't even take you out of the office is a very easy conversation - this should be a no brainer.

Your work are going to be pumped they have a NetApp expert on staff, but what's in it for you? Here's the average US base salary for a storage engineer in 2019:

"I purchased the NetApp course and was amazed by how the material was so easy to understand. I had been working with NetApp and had never seen the material presented like this. I can tell Neil was meant to teach others by the way he presents the material and includes good hands on practice in the training.

Throughout my career I have taken lots of professional classes that have cost thousands of dollars a class and I prefer this class over all of those. Neil has a special gift to take difficult subject matter and make it simple for others to understand."

- Scott Nelson

This could be you...

"I am happy to say that I have passed the NetApp NCDA exam. This video course was very informative to understand how NetApp works. I practiced a lot in my lab and that led me to get a NetApp job. Without this course I would not be here so a big thank you goes to Neil. I could not have done it without this course."

- Rodney Banipal
