I've been in contact with Jon Hall from VMware over recent weeks, he agreed to share the figures with me, and has just given me the go-ahead to release them here! Thanks Jon!
So, here goes:
- More than 53,000 individuals hold at least one VCP certification!
- There are more than 15,000 VCP4 holders worldwide!
The most amazing of the two figures is how many people already hold the VCP4 - it's already over 15,000 and rising! Considering the exam has only been available for less than 6 months I find that incredible - it certainly explains why Pearson Vue testing centres have been so busy!
Update on Feb 16th:
Confirmed with Jon Hall that 53,000 is the number of individuals who hold the VCP, rather than the number of certifications issued.
