New course - VMware vCloud: Deploy and Manage the VMware Cloud [v1.5]

VMware are about to release the first full hands-on training course for vCloud Director, and the first instructor-led course for vCloud Director 1.5 - VMware vCloud: Deploy and Manage the VMware Cloud [v1.5]

It's a 4-day training course aimed at those who hold VCP4 or VCP5 or have the equivalent level of skills/knowledge. This is very much a hands-on course, there are 21 hands-on labs that take up an estimated 60% of the course time!

The course labs cover the installation and configuration of vCloud Director components, networking and network pools, provider vDCs, organisations, and vApps. There are also labs on monitoring, vShield, VPNs and routing, security roles, LDAP, and vCloud resources.

Delivery of this new course begins in April 2012, initially at least the course will only be delivered by VCIs who hold VCP and VCAP-DCA certifications and have good experience of working with vCloud Director.


  1. I already have a VCP3 and 4, but didnt get time to do the VCP5 before the deadline. Will this course qualify a valid course for VCP5?

    On another note. Good luck in your new job. As a former student from your Magirus days' I think you'll be sadly missed.

  2. @Anonymous, I've not heard that this course will qualify you for VCP5 and I wouldn't expect it to either as it's not a vSphere course. You need to attend the What's New course for vSphere 5. And thanks for your kind words :-)

  3. Hi Scott,

    When will this course be available in India ?



  4. @Rachit, the course schedule is available via the link in the main body of this post - it is down to your local training providers to decide when to schedule this course - I would advise contacting the VATCs in your area.
