Last week I was browsing the VMware website in an attempt to figure out the certification paths available when I noticed some new certifications had launched, VMware associate. The associate certificate sits at the very start of the certification route, and is available as an on-line exam. No need to head to a testing centre.
VMware offer the associate certification in four flavours:
- Cloud (VCA-Cloud)
- Data Center Virtualization (VCA-DCV)
- End User Computing (VCA-WM)
- Network Virtualization (VCA-NV)
The most relevant for me is the Datacenter certification. After registering on the VMware website I sat through the three hour training course. The first part of the course is a high level overview, before part two which covers the VMware products available and the business problems they help solve.
