There is a new training from TrainSingal that has just been released called vSphere Advanced Networking. This training focuses on networking, and especially on those more advanced networking features which are present in vSphere 5. You'll learn some more advanced topics from networking which you might not even use, or haven't used. Topics like port mirroring, load based teaming or vSphere Security.
Today's datacenters and especially the network design must meet some requirements which might take an advantage from some of the advanced features present in vSphere 5 like Network I/O Control (NIOC) or use of Virtual Distributed Switches (vDS). You'll get hand on vSwitches and vDSwitches and you'll learn some advanced topics through troubleshooting and administration.
This Advanced Networking Training from TrainSignal has got 11 lessons and it's available through a DVDs and Online.

A quick word from Jason Nash:
When virtualization first became mainstream it did not impact networking to any great extent. But those days are gone. Today organizations want to have multiple active data centers with tier 1 applications running virtually while offering exceptional performance, security, and fault monitoring. This has put a strain on traditional virtual networking concepts.
VMware has stepped up and added many new technologies and features to vSphere networking to help meet these new challenges head on. Offerings such as thevSphere Distributed Switch (vDS) have made management, monitoring, security, and performance tiering integral features and components of the hypervisor virtual switch.
