Do I have to complete the requirements in the order listed?

No, however we strongly recommend that you do so. Also, please note that successfully registering to take an exam does not imply that you meet the certification requirements in full.

Will earning VCP6-NV by passing the VCPN610 exam re-certify my VCP certification?

Yes, if you are VCP certified and pass the VCPN610 exam before your VCP expires you will successfully re-certify by just passing the exam.

How can I prove my Cisco certification for Path 2?

If I hold a valid CCIE Data Center or CCIE Routing & Switching certification can these be validated for me to earn my VCP6-NV certification without taking a course, or do I have to go for the VCIX6-NV?

By owning a valid CCIE Data Center or CCIE Routing & Switching certification you are able to go for the VCP6-NV certification without completing a course. You will not be limited to only the VCIX6-NV.

If I take a VCP6 course and become VCP6 certified, can I then later use that same course to gain a VCP5? Can the same course be used to gain two different level certifications?

No, a course can be used only once. If you complete a VCP6 course and pass the corresponding VCP6 exam(s), you are not able to use that same VCP6 course towards gaining a VCP5. One course per certification.
