As VMware usually does, it is not different this year. If you're planning to pass your certs and you plan to attend VMworld, it may be a good idea to do both. VMware offers up to 50% discounts for exams passed during VMworld. I've taken the advantage of passing one of my exams too in the past, but luckily I planned on doing it the first day so after the exam is done, no more stress. Read further this post VCP and VCAP Discounts during VMworld 2019.
I don't think that I have to speak about the importance of having a VMware VCP/VCAP VMware certification. It is an industry standard for every datacenter IT guy. In order to pretend for a job on this position, without any VMware exams, it might be difficult, see impossible.
Some of you might think that usually, during VMworld there is a lot to do. That's certainly true, but the cost coming to VMworld could be lowered for your company (and you have another argument to point to your director) with exams that cost lower than usual during the year.
Here is the deal:
- 25% off select On Demand courses
- 50% off a VMware Learning Zone (our 24/7 training hub) Premium Subscription
- 50% off VMware Certified Professional (VCP) and VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) certification exams, as well as practice tests taken at VMworld
- 20% off Live Online courses (to be available a few weeks before VMworld)
The discounts are for tests taken during VMworld (at VMworld).
To become VCP-DCV 2019 certified you have 3 different choices of exam:
- Professional vSphere 6.7 Exam 2019 – Data center virtualization based on 6.7 version of vSphere.
- VMware Certified Professional 6.5 – Data Center Virtualization exam (our VCP6.5-DCV Study Guide Page and Free PDF download)
- VMware Certified Professional 6.5 – Data Center Virtualization Delta exam
Note: You must be VCP5, or VCP6. If, not, you must attend a class and have no “Delta” exam possibility.
Head to this page https://www.vmworld.com/en/us/pricing.html to claim your discount.
Note 2: For now, this has been announced for VMworld US, but I'd expect this to happen for VMworld Europe as well.
