A Certified Novell Administrator (CNA) is a person that has been professionally certified by Novell to administer NetWare-based based computer networks. The test fee is $125 per attempt and is administered through Pearson VUE testing sites.
The test is 68 questions with a 90 minute time limit. A minimum score of 608 out of 800 is required to pass. Results are given immediately after completion of the exam.
After passing the test, Novell will e-mail the candidate an official certification certificate. The candidate is assigned a certification number that can be used in conjunction with a login to the Novell web site's certification community pages which include access to the official program mark and other resources.
According to the Novell web site, a person planning to pursue the Certified Novell Administrator should have a strong knowledge of networking fundamentals before trying to earn the certification. In addition, Novell recommends that candidates take CompTIA's Networking+ examination beforehand, based on the belief that it would better prepare people to take the CNA exam.
Currently, students earn the CNA by taking courses Netware 6 track.
By continuing, a Novell CNA can become a Certified Novell Engineer.
The next generation of this certification is the Novell Certified Administrator - Enterprise Services (NCA-ES), which covers Novell Open Enterprise Server 2.
