VCP-NV 2019 Requirements

VCP-NV 2019 Requirements

Looking at certification page looks like one of the requirements for VCP-NV 2019 is to take one of the required training courses.

Looking at one of the training courses I see sticker price of $4250 !!!

Doesn't look like you accept Cisco certs instead those training courses.

Is there a way to get VCP-NV 2019 without spending $4250 ?

It looks to me that VMARE doesn't really want people to get certifications.


Hi Andrew68000 ,

(Disclaimer: I do NOT work at/for VMware, but I am certified as a VCP-DCV since VCP4-DCV and I'm currently a VCP6.5-DCV)

First of all, let me say that I believe that you should have posted this message of yours as a post (new "Discussion") in the "VCP: VMware Certified Professional​" forum and NOT as a "Document".

If you already have an active/non-expired Cisco Cert (CCNA, CCNP or CCIE), I believe that you are NOT required to attend a training course. I'm saying this based on the "Certification Path" for the "if you hold a Cisco Certification" case that is listed at the "VMware Certified Professional - Network Virtualization 2019​" web page, namely the following :

1. Gain experience with NSX technologies

2. Submit proof that you hold an Active/Non-Expired Cisco CCNA, CCNP or CCIE certification

    Submit proof

3. Pass One of the Foundation exams

     vSphere 6 Foundations (This exam retired on August 30, 2019)

     vSphere 6.5 Foundations (This exam retired on August 30, 2019)

     VMware vSphere 6.7 Foundations Exam 2019          Schedule Exam >
              105 MINUTES 65 QUESTIONS $125

4. Pass the Professional Network Virtualization Exam

      VMware Certified Professional 6 - Network Virtualization 6.2 Exam       Schedule Exam >
              120 Minutes 77 Questions $250

I hope this helps!

I agree with everything that Ricardo said, including that you should post as a discussion/question rather than as a document.
