VMware Certified Professional – Network Virtualization 2023 (VCP-NV 2023) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

Is the VMware Certified Professional - Network Virtualization worth it?

Yes, the VMware Certified Professional - Network Virtualization (VCP-NV) certification from VMware is definitely worth it – it's a strong and clear investment in your skills as an IT professional. VCP-NV is an advanced professional credential from one of the world's most reputable virtualization and cloud computing firms. If you have professional interest in designing, implementing or managing VMware NSX environments, the VCP-NV is the credential that proves to employers you're prepared.

How much does the VCP-NV cost?

The VMware Certified Professional - Network Virtualization certifying exam costs $250 to attempt, but that isn't the only cost you'll pay to earn the VCP-NV. The prerequisites for earning a VMware certification can be complicated as well as expensive, so you should check their website for exact and timely information, but in addition to the VCP-NV exam, you'll need to attend at least one required VMware-official training course.

How difficult is the VMware Certified Professional - Network Virtualization exam?

The VCP-NV certifying exam is hard – even for experienced cloud and network professionals. What makes the VMware Certified Professional - Network Virtualization exam so difficult is its emphasis not just on universal best practices related to network management, but detailed understanding of the VMware NSX environment. The laundry list of VMware solutions for network virtualization implementations is long and detailed: earning the VCP-NV means demonstrating familiarity with all of them.

Does the VCP-NV expire?

No, as of 2019, VMware's professional-level (VCP) certifications no longer expire and they do not need to be renewed every two years (as had previously been the case). According to VMware, not every company constantly updates their VMware technology, and so it wasn't necessary (in some cases it was detrimental) to require VMware professionals to learn and certify on the newest features or capabilities.

Who should take this VMware Certified Professional - Network Virtualization course?

IT professionals with at least 3-5 years of experience whose job responsibilities include VMware, network virtualization, or cloud technologies should consider earning the VCP-NV. Network administrators can benefit from mastering network virtualization for enhancing efficiency and operational overhead, systems administrators and cloud professionals can improve availability to network resources with virtualization. And cybersecurity professionals can learn entirely new approaches and techniques to implementing network security with virtualization.
