Are you looking for NSX-T 3.0 Training? Do you want to learn from an experienced trainer who makes complex concepts simple and easy to understand?

I am a VMware Certified Instructor who has taught thousands of hours of live training directly for VMware. Most lectures in this course are 5 - 15 minutes long. A few deeper topics are slightly longer. This course gives you a complete understanding of NSX-T concepts. So join me in becoming an NSX Guru today!

VMware NSX is the most disruptive network technology in recent memory. Demand for employees who understand NSX will continue to grow as the product reaches maturity. This course is designed to help you understand all of the concepts behind NSX-T 3.0. We'll start at the very beginning, and learn basic networking. If you are a vSphere Administrator with a limited networking background this will be very helpful.

NSX-T 3.0 will be covered in a few different sections. First we'll learn the basics about NSX-T 3.0 objects, and differentiate the Management, Control, and Data Planes. From there we'll dig deep into switching and routing functions within NSX-T 3.0. We'll also cover security, and how NSX can provide microsegmentation.

This course will also help you prepare for the VMware VCP-NV 2V0-41.20 exam. The new VCP-NV 2021 Certification can be achieved by passing the NSX-T 3.0 exam that this course is based on. In order to take the VCP-NV exam you will need to complete some course requirements from VMware as well. Be sure to check those out as you prepare to get certified.

This course navigates through the topics in a very chronological order, which is amazing. It gives insights into the various configuration elements that an administrator needs to consider. The length of the slides and DEMOs is just apt. The missing pieces would be the coverage of IAM like Roles, integration with vIDM etc. Overall, I like the course and is recommended for beginners to intermediate administrators.

Possibly the best UDemy course I've taken yet. However, I wished the networking intro was cut and more walkthroughs were included toward the end. That said, I learned much.

Solomon31 July 2021

The training courses are made up of 5-20 minute videos that I can view at my convenience. The video lessons keep-it-simple and explain things clearly and succinctly.

Rick is a great teacher but i think this course is lacking, i highly doubt anyone can pass the VCP with this course alone. This course doesn't even cover the sample questions in the exam blueprint. That being said i thought this course was good if you are looking to learn the absolute basics

So I did 5 day NSX-T 3.0 course with Vmware, training was good though fast paced and ideal for those with past experience. As a newbie, it was difficult to grasp all concepts. Rick's way of teaching is second to none, I'm now getting the confidence that upon completion of this course and having gone through the VMWARE NSX-T ® REFERENCE DESIGN GUIDE, I should be able to sit the exam.

Just awesome. The explanations of the Single Tier Routing with the Distributed Router and the Services Router is fantastic
