There’s no question that skills and knowledge related to various networked forms of storage – such as storage area networks (SANs), network-attached storage (NAS), virtualized storage, and even storage as a service (STaaS) – are in high demand. Also, IT professionals interested in data center or network-backbone-related positions are likely to need strong storage chops.
Average salaries for storage engineers are consistent (and lucrative) across several job-related websites. For example, SimplyHired reports the average nationwide salary is a little over $107,600 in a range starting at $74,085 and climbing just over $156,000. Potential earnings reported by Glassdoor are higher: The national average salary is just over $165,800, with the low end of the range at about $110,000 and the high end close to $182,000.
In some ways, the state of storage certification perfectly mirrors in a single subject area (or perhaps a closely clustered collection of related subjects) what occurs across the full spectrum of information technology. Some vendor-neutral storage certifications are available, particularly those from the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) and Arcitura. Also, there are numerous vendor-specific storage credentials available from providers of storage systems and solutions, including Cisco, Dell EMC, Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), HPE, NetApp and Sun/Oracle, among others.
Like other IT certifications, vendor-neutral credentials recognize broad competency in design, implementation and management, while vendor-specific programs tend to match up with technologies active IT professionals interact within the workplace (or that they’d like to interact with for prospective employers).
How is a storage-minded IT professional supposed to pick a winner here? Name recognition is one factor. Big name and big company certifications tend to attract higher numbers of certified individuals, lending more credibility to such certifications.
Popularity with employers is another consideration when selecting a certification. In our informal survey, we searched several online job sites on a given day for specific storage certifications. Note that the Cisco CCNP swamps the other certifications because its coverage goes well beyond storage. (The CCNP Data Center specialization involves storage to some degree, but it does not focus only on storage.)
Job Board Search Results (in alphabetical order, by certification)
|CCIE Data Center (Cisco)||366||516||345||364||1,591|
|CCNP Data Center (Cisco)||596||792||390||448||2,226|
|HDS Storage Administration (Hitachi)||205||256||104||110||675|
Based on name recognition and job board surveys, our picks for 2019 lie with Cisco, HDS, NetApp and SNIA. One item noticeably absent from the leader board this year is the Brocade storage program. This gap in the lineup isn’t for lack of popularity. In fact, quite the opposite is true as the job board search yielded over 3,000 employers seeking candidates with Brocade experience and certs. Unfortunately for certification seekers, after Brocade was acquired by Broadcom, its exams, accreditations, certifications, and instructor-led training are no longer available. However, many free web-based courses remain that cover Fibre Channel Storage Area Networking products for professionals seeking to expand their Brocade knowledge and skills.
The following sections explore each of the preceding certifications and/or programs.
Of all the storage-related Cisco certifications, the CCIE Data Center is the most senior and the best recognized. While it is a difficult and demanding credential to earn, it comes with a terrific payoff for its holders.
An expert-level credential, CCIE Data Center professionals are masters when it comes to planning, designing, implementing and managing IT data center infrastructures. test courses focus on connectivity (Layers 2 and 3), fabric infrastructure, storage networking and computing, network services, evolving and emerging technologies, and network services and automation.
To earn this credential, candidates must pass both a written and a rigorous 8-hour, two-part practical lab exam. The written test must be passed before candidates may attempt the lab exam. Lab exams must be attempted within 18 months of successfully passing the written exam. The lab test is delivered in two parts: The first part consists of a one-hour Diagnostic Module, while Part 2 consists of a 7-hour Configuration and Troubleshooting module. It is reputed to be fiendishly challenging.

Multiple choice questions are perhaps the easiest to complete - you simply put a cross in a box - however, the questions often have two answers that could, at first glance, be correct. Don't make the mistake of memorizing the first answer and thinking this is correct without checking all the others.
If it says 'Tick one box', you must tick one box. If you leave it blank or tick two or more boxes you will get zero marks. These multiple choice questions will not start with command words like 'Describe...' or 'Explain...'. They will be written in the form of a question like 'What...?' or 'Why...?'.
There will be more multiple choice questions on the Foundation paper.
These questions have been written by Bitesize consultants as suggestions to the types of questions that may appear in an test paper.
As a licensed Professional Engineer, or PE, you can expect many more benefits when compared to other engineers; most employers offer higher salaries and greater opportunities for advancement to PE's. Only PE's can consult in private practice, and seal company documents to be sent to the government. PEs also have more credibility as expert witnesses in court than most engineers.
Steps in obtaining a PE license:
During your senior year you should take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, which is required prior to sitting for the Professional Engineers (PE) Exam. Some requirements vary by state.
The National Council of Examiners Administers Both Exams for Engineering and Surveying
Engineering students at Michigan Tech are encouraged to take and pass the FE examination during their last semester in college, or the first year after graduation. There will never be a time when you are better prepared to pass it than near graduation.
The examination is offered in April and October each year. Students must visit http://ncees.org/exams/ to register for the test and pay the $155.00 fee. The registration deadline is approximately two months before the test.
FE test Waiver
The FE Exam may be waived for those who have earned a BS in engineering and a PhD in engineering. See the NCEES web site for details.

The participating candidates will have the same number of choices for subjects and also the same format will come in the test paper. This test will involve Multiple Choice Questions in CBT mode. More information has been mentioned below.
DU UG CUET 2023: The Chairman of the University Grant Commission (UGC), M Jagadesh Kumar recently announced that there will be no changes in the test format of the Central University Entrance Test (CUET) in 2023. Moreover, the number of examination centres is likely to elevate from around 450 to about 1000 respectively.
As per the latest notification, there were various complaints received regarding the CUET test conduct. Despite some glitches in the examination, the first-ever national was organized across 45 central universities in the previous year 2022. The test is conducted for admissions to Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes offered by the varsity. The National Testing Agency (NTA) earlier took the decision to make changes to this year’s test paper.
The appropriate measures to be considered by the officials such as the reduction in the number of subject combinations on offer along with a review of the number of cities where the exams are conducted.
Technical Glitches in CUET Exam
In 2022, there was a short delay in the intimation of test centres and many centres faced technical glitches. Also, it was reported that the question paper was uploading at a very slow speed. The system was not working in an optimized manner.
These above-mentioned technical faults were informed on August 25, 2022, when the Chief of the National Testing Agency (NTA) Vineet Joshi discussed the problems related to the conduct of the CUET exam. It was also mentioned that a committee headed by the Vice-Chancellor of the Central University of Punjab had been established for successful implementations of CUET.
