If you are new to SAN, start by enrolling for the FC 101 class, which is in an introduction to Fibre Channel. Go to the Login & Register box on this page: Education and you can take that class for free. Without knowing much more, this is all I can recommend at this point.

Well, the FC 101 will help you prepare for the Brocade Accredited Data Center Specialist. From there, you can go on to BCFA (fabric administrator) and the BCFP (fabric professional). Have a look at this page: Certification and Accreditation Programs and the pyramid graphic. You can download the Program Overview guide for more information. Then, feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck on your path to certifications.
