Free NFV Certification Offer

I am not here to sell you on the concept of NFV, SDN or explain the virtues of these new technologies. You can read all about that here, or visit our Network Facts webpage if you really want to learn more about the future of networking. You can debunk some of the SDN myths by reading this article. I work for Brocade University, the education and certification part of Brocade, and I run the Brocade Certification Program.





NFV Certification Promotion

In support of this new technology, we want to introduce you to NFV. We have a promotion to help you experience NFV with hands-on time, to get certified on our virtual routers, and get a jump on your industry peers in being certified on cutting-edge concepts. Click here to get started with this promotion.


Brocade University is pleased to announce the new SDN BCVRE bundle of self-paced, eLearning courses.  These courses are designed for network professionals with field experience who wish to take the Brocade Certified vRouter Engineer (BCVRE) exam (170-010).




The classes cover all of the topics related to installing configuring and troubleshooting a Brocade Vyatta vRouter. The bundle aims to bridge the technology gap for those who are certified in Ethernet concepts and help them become familiar with the Brocade NFV solution, and to get Brocade NFV Certified.  


The BCVRE bundle will be offered free of charge and includes a promotional code which allows the student to take the BCVRE exam one time at no cost


Watch a short video and then discover what NFV is about using Brocade Vyatta vRouter technology.




When ready, access this document containing supplemental exam study materials, to help you get certified.

I have fixed the video link. AN updated version of the video was created, and the opening screen is what is different. Please go to this link and you should be set, and all questions answered about the free BCVRE training and exam.

Despite being signed in, I too get that error. I am, however, able to view the video and managed to download the iso and get signed onto the course.

I am getting Access Denied error for Document page.


And How we will get the Promotional code?

by on ‎06-25-2014 06:19 AM

Try it now. The document was in edit mode. My mistake, I am sorry. You still need to register for the training to get the promo code for the exam.

by thulasi39 on ‎06-25-2014 07:27 AM

Thanks Joe. Very quick reply.


I already registered for the training and it's in progress (means I started to learn the module).


So Do i need to complete the training to get Promotional code?


by on ‎06-25-2014 07:31 AM

Look in the introductory module. It would be a PDF attached to the course. If you don't see it, email me directly at You don't need to complete the training to get the code, but you should complete the training to prepare for the exam.

Could you tell me if we can receive any hard-copy certificates when we do Brocade exams? I scheduled BCVFP and BCVRE exams already, if I pass will I receive any hard copies of my certificates?

by on ‎06-25-2014 03:07 PM

Our FAQs on the certification page on state we only issue PDFs. We stopped hard copies in 2009, but goo dluck on future exams.

by dionaea on ‎06-25-2014 03:42 PM

Please tell me how PDF certificates can be used on your resume and in a job interview? How do you prove you have the cert etc? Do you have to print it out?

by on ‎06-25-2014 04:15 PM

The PDFs do have your name, but our system does even better than that. We have a feature called a transcript, which means you may login, create a transcript, and insert the email address of a recipient. They get an official list of all of your certifications and dates.

Thank you so much for the info.

I am getting the access denied error despite adjusting cookies ect. 

by raghava.rao on ‎06-27-2014 07:26 AM

it says 'Access Denied' for me as well.

by on ‎06-27-2014 08:08 AM

What is being denied? I can't help without more specific information. I want to get you set, but I need more so I can investigate.

by on ‎06-28-2014 02:50 AM

Thanks Joe for the free exam and free training - nice to not have to pay for every cert.  I watched the videos then read the nutsheel, booked the exam and passed.

They are all available as part of the SDN BCVRE bundle course. Look for that. If they are missing from that bundle please email Today Brocade is closed, but all will be back on Monday and they can help.

by Arbab Nazar on ‎07-08-2014 11:22 PM

I am not able to download the iso, can you please help me in this regard. Thanks

by on ‎07-09-2014 02:31 AM

The download is blocked for some countries due to local laws. You still may participate in the promotion, and with the training and study guide, you should be able to pass the exam, as others have before you. I am sorry the download is not available; that is out of our control.
