Few FAQs from VMware concerning the VCP6.5-DCV:
Will vSphere V6 courses satisfy the VCP6.5-DCV certification upon passing the exam?
No, you must complete a vSphere V6.5 course to achieve certification if you do not already hold a valid VCP certification.
Will earning VCP6.5-DCV certification re-certify my older VCP certification?
Yes, by passing the VCP6.5-DCV exam you will successfully re-certify.
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.
If I take a VCP6.5 course and become VCP6.5 certified, can I then later use that same course to gain a VCP6? Can the same course be used to gain 2 different level certifications?
No, a course can be used only once. If you complete a VCP6.5 course and pass the corresponding VCP6.5 exam(s), you are not able to use that same VCP6.5 course towards gaining a VCP6. However, since training is only required one time as long as you keep your VCP current, you are not required to take another training to earn a second VCP, so you can simply take another VCP exam to earn that certification.
There is a slight difference between the vSphere 6.0 and 6.5 within the UI. The TABs changed places, to do things, the UI of the vSphere 6.5 is more streamlined and VMware is going towards full HTML 5 based web client for the future releases. Right now the client is about 80-90 percent finished.
