    VCP NSX exam version query

    nileshgore25 Lurker

      Hi,

      I want to know if there is any difference between VCP6-NV and VCP-NV 2020, both certification mention same exam to be taken.

       

      VC6-NV

      https://www.vmware.com/education-services/certification/vcp6-nv.html

      Exam - VMware Certified Professional 6 – Network Virtualization

       

      VCP-NV 2020

      https://www.vmware.com/education-services/certification/vcp-nv.html

      Exam - VMware Certified Professional 6 - Network Virtualization 6.2 Exam (Retiring Soon on June 30, 2020)

       

      When clicked on the Exam links both opens the same page

       

      https://www.vmware.com/education-services/certification/vcp6-nv-nsxv62-exam.html

      Exam Number - 2V0-642

      Associated Certification - VCP-NV 2020

       

      Exam Number - 2V0-642 - is this exam retiring on June 30, 2020 ? if yes, then whether this date will be extended in view of the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic ?

       

      Pearson onVue is not available in Japan, thats why i cannot take exam online from home ?

      Can i use some VPN to connect to other country and attempt the exam ? will it work ? will it be legal ?

       

      Regards,

      Nilesh

            Yes they are the same exam - it was originally created for VCP6-NV but is still valid today for the current VCP-NV 2020, and is on the NSX-V product.

             

            VCP-NV 2020 is the certification you will be awarded when you complete the various requirements, don't worry about VCP6-NV as new certification holders cannot be awarded it.

             

            There are currently 2 tracks for VCP-NV 2020 - for NSX-V and for NSX-T: VMware Certified Professional - Network Virtualization 2020 (VCP-NV 2020)

             

            Given the direction of the NSX product, I would expect future exams to be on NSX-T only - you can take the NSX-T path today, so the NSX-V exam retirement should be less of an issue.

             

            To answer your other questions:

             

            Exam Number - 2V0-642 - is this exam retiring on June 30, 2020?

            Yes

             

            if yes, then whether this date will be extended in view of the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic ?

            For most countries, remote testing is now available - so I doubt it.

             

            Pearson onVue is not available in Japan, thats why i cannot take exam online from home ?

            Correct.

             

            Can i use some VPN to connect to other country and attempt the exam ? will it work ? will it be legal ?

            That would be a question for VMware or for Pearson VUE.

             

            I would strongly advise sending an email to certification@vmware.com
