Principal VMware Certified Professional certifications:
NEW: VMware has announced new certification to the already crowded number of certifications. There is four VMware Certified Associate (VCA) certification. And with good news is that there is no obligatory training in order to pass those certifications and get the VCA certification!
So for example to became the VCA-DCV you can (it’s recommended only – not an obligation) follow the VMware Data Center Virtualization fundamentals, which is a freely accessible online course.
Here is a certification Road map from VMware.
VMware Training by VMware Education.
There is a large choice of Official Vmware Training courses. There are training for every level of people: beginner, confirmed, advanced.
VMware vSphere – Install, configure, manage [v5] – VCP 510 training is the base. This training is for people willing to get certified on VCP 5.
But what’s next? What would be the next step after getting the VCP 5? With many offerings for VMware Training you might be interested in passing a VCAP. Check out my experience from VCAPs here (VCAP5-DCD), or here for the VCAP5-DCA.
Note: Please note that those exams were replaced now and you have the opportunity to earn VCAP5-DCA and VCAP5-DCD by passing those exams on vSphere 5.5! Those codes for those exams are VDCA550 and (or) VDCD550.
