Thank you for your interest in the Hitachi Data Systems certification program. You can find all the details and information about Hitachi Data Systems Certification at: www.hds.com/certification. These web pages will give you the information for the available tracks, supporting courseware, exam details and costs. Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need more information at email@example.com
Your starting point will be the Foundations track, to become Hitachi Certified Professional (HCP) (exam HH0-130). The foundations exam is required for all advanced level certifications (with the exception of FCS Implementer and FCS Architect). http://www.hds.com/services/education/certification/storage-foundations-track.html
The next step will depend on your job and on the skill set(s) you want to have validated:a) Architect track: for those who design and architect storage solutions. http://www.hds.com/services/education/certification/storage-architect-track.html
b) Implementer tracks: for those who implement storage systems (Implementer paths: install, configure, maintain), or who implement software solutions (Implementation specialist paths: business continuity or storage management)http://www.hds.com/services/education/certification/implementation-track.html
c) Solutions track: This track is designed for Hitachi Data Systems employees and partners. Solution Specialists should have strong knowledge of Hitachi storage systems, software products and associated services. http://www.hds.com/services/education/certification/certified-solutions-specialist.html
d) Storage manager tracks: for those who manage and administer storage systems as end-users.http://www.hds.com/services/education/certification/storage-management-track.html
e) New in the HDS certification program: Storage Technology track !http://www.hds.com/services/education/certification/storage-technology-track.html

HH0-130 is the Storage Foundations course and covers both Modular and Enterprise. You need this before you can go down the more advanced routes. It gives you an excellent introduction to the Hitachi range of products.
Please note that the Hitachi Certified Professional (HCP) credential obtained by passing the HH0-130 Foundations exam is a requirement for several advanced certifications, however it is not a prerequisite.
Indeed, it is strongly recommended to start with Foundations, then progress to advanced tracks such as Implementer, Architect, Solutions etc.
It is nonetheless possible to take (and pass) an advanced exam before attempting the Foundations exam. In that scenario, and assuming the advanced credential sought by the candidate does require holding a valid HCP credential, certifications will be awarded only after having passed the HH0-130 exam. In other words, no certification will be given after passing the advanced exam, but then 2 certification credentials (HCP and the advanced one) will be granted after passing the HH0-130 exam.
Should I receive a certificate or is the one given at the test centre with the pass score it? Only I've not received anything since passing the foundations cert?
The HDS Certification program office will send you an electronic copy of the certificate as well as certification marks that you can use with business cards, letterheads etc. This may take a few weeks depending on when the exam was taken.
Ok thanks, I didn't receive an email either though?
It is better to handle this separately from this discussion: please send an email to HDSCertifications@hds.com providing the details of your exam (exam number and date passed) and we will take it from there.
I got mine a few weeks after passing HH0-130 in e-mail.
How are you? Hope you are doing well!
I have completed my HDS Storage Foundation Examination on August 16, 2013 with 96% passing score, I didn't receive any link or details about my certification from HDS.
Do you know any information, when i will recieve information from HDS and can you please help me with?
Please look into your mailbox, the HDS Certification team has replied to your email on the subject.
Are there any student/adminstration guides to prepare for HCP certification?? Also, let me know if there are any practise tests available? Thanks evryone.
The "HCP" acronym can be associated with 2 different things that relate to certification so here is information about both.
HCP - Hitachi Certified Professional credential (= Storage Foundations certification via exam HH0-130)
Course THI2264 "Hitachi Data Systems Storage Foundations" supports the HH0-130 exam and helps prepare for it.
The path is described here http://www.hds.com/services/education/certification/storage-foundations-track.html, with links to the course and exam descriptions.
HCP - Hitachi Content Platform product certification (via Implementer exam HH0-260)
Course TCI0770 "Installing and Configuring Hitachi Content Platform" supports the HH0-260 exam.
Here is the link for further details: http://www.hds.com/services/education/certification/certified-implementer/implementer-pathway2.html
There are no practice tests available.
Hi Jean, Thanks for the information.
Are there any study material available for preparing for HCP - Hitachi Certified Professional credential???
As mentioned earlier the HDS Academy offers course THI2264 "Hitachi Data Systems Storage Foundations" to prepare for the HCP credential via the HH0-130 exam. But this is not a "self-study" material, if this is what you mean.
