VMware Certified Associate - Network Virtualization (VCA-NV)

Hi is there ever going to be an exam for the VMware Certified Associate - Network Virtualization (VCA-NV)

It’s been advertised as coming soon since last year so that’s about 6 months now.

The eLearning course has been available for a while so I naturally assumed the exam was really coming soon.

Betas are normally invitation-only, I'll keep my ears open internally for noise though...

Hi Scott, can I assume that now as it’s almost a year since the VCA’s were launched, and that now the VMware Certified Associate - Network Virtualization (VCA-NV) is no longer mentioned as even coming soon that it’s been cancelled?

I believe this certification was pulled - the "starter level" for NV is the VCP-NV: VMware Certification

It looks like VCA-DCV is the only 1 of the 4 VCAs to have a practice exam.

Hi,

I appeared on 1st Jan 2015. Unfortunately failed with 278. There are lot of questions about Basic Network fundamentals. Going to reappear on 17th Jan again.

Hi, Congratulation for your Certification!

I would know which of three (one, two or all) certifications of VCA are more important between Cloud, Network and Data Center.
I have studied the three courses, but I want manage my money for exams Smiley Happy

Thanks for help!!

I have to be honest, the VCA really isn't worth much as far as VMware certifications go, yes it's great for a manager to take the exam to have a basic understanding of the product but as far as technology understanding goes you're looking at the VCP as the key exam to prove understanding of the technology suite is concerned.

I certainly don't look for people with VCA's on their CV, I am more interested in the VCP and VCAP exams, at least with them you know they have a decent understanding of the technology rather than spent 3 hours on a self study course.

I speak as a person with all 4 VCA's as well as a couple of VCP's (and looking at the VCAP for this year).

Just my opinion of course.

I have used a little VMware for fun and now I would certificate my knowledge.
I think that you have right for CV and the VCA level, I speak as a person that have achieved CCNA Certification and a Master Degree in Physics.

Perhaps I think that's a good idea follow the Network VCA and next go to the VCP level. I think also to start CCNP in the future.

Do you think it's a good idea?

Thanks for your attention!
