Probably start with Certified Operator or Builder depending upon what your focus is. If your a customer then go with Operator (can be upgraded to Master Operator with some additional exams). If you build EMC solutions for customers, then then the builder track is best (also can be upgraded to Master Builder). There are additional levels from there on, such as Architect etc.. but they require many more exams.
To get Operator or Builder will require three exams (a fundimentals and two tech exams), which can be taken at any prometric testing centre, and are multiple choice type exams (although they can be quite challenging!!).

I recently passed my Master Builder, and it's not too bad. Exams cost about £150 each.

Best of Luck

I'd go for the industry SNIA cert rather than a manufacturer specific one if I was you.

Thanks Prof66

     Next question would be where to get material and how to prepare for the exams. EMC Trainings seem to be expensive. Is there a way to prepare without trhe expensive classroom trainings. thanks
     Also which is the best one ou of these 5 tracks

 Business Continuity

Best place to obtain materials is "PowerLink".  In addition to the white papers and product documents, they also have a practice exam for thre assocaite certification.

EMC has re-vamped the certification paths, so you may want to take another look at the tracks avaiable.  I believe they have an associate level, and then a specialist gtrack now.
