The VMware Certified Associate Data Center Virtualisation September 1, 2013

Posted by vbry21 in VMware blogs, VMware Training.

On Friday night 30th August 2013 I sat my VCA-DCV exam and passed.

The VCA-DCV stands for VMware Certified Associate – Data Center Virtualisation

So, here’s how I prepped and passed the exam.

The training material is available free of charge from VMware’s education website.

The course is called VMware Data Center Virtualisation Fundamentals and is a self-paced 2.5 hour web delivered course.

Once through the course, the next step is to register and then sit the exam.

The exam is available via Pearson VUE (costs £80 plus VAT £88, but book now and get 50% discount, comes to £48), but is delivered direct to your browser, the exam lasts  90 minutes and consists of 50 multiple choice questions.

Good luck.

Aside from the online 2.5 hour course which seemed to just describe the VMWare products, did you need any additional knowledge?

Looking at the exam blueprint document they provide, it lists stuff not covered by the course.

Hi Dave, sorry delay getting back, nope the course is enough, the certification is really a foundation for the more technical courses, VMware are encouraging all of their sales people to sit this exam as well.

Hi sorry for the delay getting back, the associated training on the VMware certification site is enough to pass the VCA exam, I would do the VCA-DCV first and then the VCA-Cloud
