New VCAP6 Beta Exams Now Available

Editors note (2/5/16): Please note that we have reached our capacity for the VCAP6-DCV Design beta exam and registration has closed. There is still room in the VCAP6-CMA Design exam.

AVCAPs we announced in December, we have been hard at work on the VMware Certified Advanced Professional 6 (VCAP6) beta exams. And now the wait is over! The following exams are now open for public registration, with first exam appointments beginning on February 15.

Available beta exams:

Only candidates with either a VCP6 level certification or a VCP5 level certification + a VCAP5 level certification are eligible to take these beta exams.

The VCAP Deployment beta exams are available via invitation only.

VMware uses beta exams to “field test” new exam questions with a live audience. These exams are offered at a deeply discounted price, participation is limited, and they are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to popular demand, we recommend that you register soon. For more information and timing, please visit our beta exam information page.

    I requested the authorization yesterday and got granted a few hours later. But when scheduling, I need to enter a special Voucher Code. Where to get it?

    I did an authorization to attend VCAP6-DCD and I wanted to perform a payment but the exam suddenly disappeared from a list of available exams. I see that it registration is now closed for all new requests but you could at least allow those who successfully requested an authorization to register for the exam! This is unfair.

      I am in the same situation, I got authorization for the exam, but now that I am trying to schedule I no longer have it listed.

    Last year you stated in your blog (https://blogs.vmware.com/education/2015/03/migration-paths-v5-certification-v6.html), that “If you hold a VCIX-NV certification you will be automatically migrated to VCIX6-NV”.
    After reading thourgh the current migration path, it seems that I still have to take and pass the VCIX6-NV deployment exam to become VCIX6-NV.

    Can you please clarify?
    After all, the NSX version in my VCIX-NV exam last year was 6.0.2.
