The exam code HP0-P20 is based on HP-UX 11.31 release. This level of certification requires an individual to perform hands-on installation, configuration, administration and support of the HP Operating System in networked environments.

Following attendance on the relevant courses, delegates will need to dedicate time for self study and researching the topics covered on the course. They will also need to gain hands-on experience so they can put into practice what they have learnt on the courses.

Before taking any exam, delegates should ensure they have the recommended experience by checking the HP website for current exam requirements and pre-assessment questionnaires.

Exams are not included as part of the course nor in the course fee.
