Four Technology Tracks defined in Four Level in each track starting from Associate to Design Expert, that’s all about the certification roadmap.
Sometimes we get confuse that which certification shall I start with? Here is a complete path for you. First you need to choose the technology you are interested in.
- If you are interested in Data Center Products such as vSphere, vCenter, ESXi – You can choose Data Center Virtualization track.
- If you are in to NSX or Network Virtualization technology – You may go with Network Virtualization Track
- If you are interested in Cloud Technology such as vRealize Automation – Cloud Management & Automation is best track for you.
- If you are or interested or already taking care of Desktop Virtualization Technology? such as VDI, Horizon View – Go for Desktop & Mobility Track.
Once you have set your mind with technology track, now you have to look at the level you want to achieve. It is starting from:
Associate(VCA) > Professional (VCP) > Advance Professional or Implementation Expert (VCAP) > Design Expert (VCDX)
Now there are some mandatory level you need to achieve before going to next level, however few of them are not must needed. Like you don’t need to do Associate Level(VCA) to go to next level. You can directly jump to Professional Level which is VCP. However we do not recommend to cross the path as certificate roadmap is designed in such way to carve your skills step by step. Let me describe in more crisp way.
One more think I would like to highlight here specially for beginners and candidates who wants to go for VCP. If you are looking for VMware Class ID and want to give exam, you must need to attend the VMware Classes from authorized VMware Training Partners and Trainer must be a VMware Certified Instructor(VCI).
Here is link to Register for Exam.
For pricing of these VMware Classes and Certifications, please refer to VMware Certificate Link.
In Next blog, I will explain about the specific training such as VCP, VCAP. I will also share real time experience from different certified experts of different tracks. Stay tuned.
