Easiest thing to do is register under the company's Netapp account and download the Neapp appliance.  This is installed on a linux vm or phyiscal server and allows you to do 90% of what you would do on an actual Netapp.

I would then login to the website and go through any of the of the online trainig sessions that are out there.  The next step would be to ask the company to send her to Netapp training classes, as well as get some hands on with a senior tech.

Dear hopeleonie,

paulsolov's recommendation is absolutely good, but please let me also recommend the NetApp University http://www.netapp.com/us/support/university/learning.html which can be a good starting point for a person without any existing knowledge about NetApp at all.

The NetApp University does offer some free self-paced trainings, as well as refer to global external partners for additional training.

Kind regards,
Soren
