In this intermediate VMware NSX VCP6-NV training, Jacob Moran prepares learners to take the 2V0-642 exam, which is one of two exams required to earn the VCP6 - Network Virtualization certification.
VMware integrated a lot of technologies into their network virtualization product, NSX. It’s a modern software-defined networking product that will make security, application continuity, and automation relatively easy — as long as you know how to use it.
If you’re new to NSX, the first step is translating the business use case into a technology solution. That can be daunting in itself. That’s why Jacob starts with a high-level look at what NSX offers, then works up to how to implement it all. Follow along with Jacob in your own VMware Hands On Lab as he takes you from initial setup to troubleshooting NSX network components.
After completing this NSX VCP6-NV training, you'll be prepped for the 2V0-642 exam — and be well positioned to step into more senior network administrator roles and possibly even network engineer.
For anyone who manages network administrators, this NSX VCP6-NV training can be used for 2V0-642 exam prep, on-boarding new network administrators, or part of a team training plan.

Who Should Take 2V0-642 Training?
Who Should Take 2V0-641 Training?
This NSX VCP6-NV training is considered professional-level VMware training, which means it was designed for network administrators with three to five years of experience with network virtualization, specifically NSX infrastructure and software-designed networking.
New or aspiring network administrators. This VCP6-NV training was developed for anyone who manages NSX routers and switches. The advanced migration and troubleshooting skills may be out of reach for new net admins. However, learning how to use the CLI and configure DHCP and BGP will benefit network professionals at any level. Familiarity and training with these NSX functions will not only make you better at your job, but also give you specific understanding of basic NSX architecture, maintenance, and networking.
Experienced network administrators. For virtualization professionals who have already passed the prerequisite vSphere 6 Foundations exam, this VMware training will get you closer to earning your VCP. The VMWare Certified Professional 6 - Network Virtualization (VCP6-NV) training covers how to build and set up virtual networks, keep them running, and maintain them for optimal network function and reliability. Security on virtualized networks also takes a starring role in this VMware training, which is more valuable now than ever.
