VMware introduces higher-level certification programs
VMware has announced a new certification program, VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) to differentiate professionals who have continued to grow beyond the skills certified by the basic VMware Certified Professional (VCP) program.
VCAP program will offer two certification specialties for virtualization partners, end- users and consultants. VMware Certified Advanced Professional Datacenter Administration (VCAP-DCA) is directed toward System Administrators, Senior Consultants and Technical Support Engineers who are capable of working with large and more complex virtualized environments.
Successful candidates will also be capable of using automation tools, planning and designing virtualized solutions and administering all VMware vSphere Enterprise components. The exam for VCAP-DCA opens July 12, 2010.
The other specialty, VMware Certified Advanced Professional Datacenter Design (VCAP-DCD), is directed toward IT Architects and Consulting Architects who can demonstrate their skills in designing VMware solutions in a multi-site, large enterprise environment. Registration for the VCAP-DCD exam opens in August.
