    On Demand vs  Classroom Training

    routing1000 Novice

      Hello All,


      I am new to vmware world and their products and once i finish their prerequisites training to attend NSX-T 2.4 ICM, i am planning to take vmware authorized training to learn NSX-T 2.4 ICM course.

      but not able to decide whether i should go for classroom or on demand??




      5 working days

      need to take leave from office

      no exam voucher

      but can ask many questions to Trainer live

      no classroom recording for future revision

      lab access only for 5 days


      whereas in On Demand



      30 days in length

      free VCP Exam voucher

      but cannot ask questions live but can query in community if required

      Lab access for 30 days

      not sure if on demand videos are easily understandable or not ?

      can revise videos if required

          IMHO I recommend taking the class to be more focused on it if you take the on-demand will take you longer to finish it.

            INMO, Class room training are best if you have existing knowledge on how VMware Virtualization works.


            if you are totally new to the VMware concepts then 5 days will be too much of load to grasp the concepts...


            1. Try classroom training for good collaboration with the people and if you are quick learner it can help you.


            2. On demand classes can be considered if you are ready to spend sometime to learn the concepts slowly and gradually you will grasp the concepts ..

            VMware is an amazing technology and you can learn as long as you have the hunger to learn all the best routing1000

              Ive done the NSX-T ICM on demand training and it was actually really good! Usually i would say go classroom if you can afford it but frankly the online course was well worth doing and was very engaging. More so that some others i had completed which felt painfully slow
              Combined with some HoL & Home Labbing, it should be more than sufficient to get you going with NSX-T
