VMware and Pearson have done further integration work on their systems, resulting in a simple registration process for all VMware certification exams.
No more "exam authorisation" process, and no more having to maintain multiple Pearson logins for VCA/VCP and for VCAP/VCIX exams - just a single, simple process to follow.
All you have to do now is:
1. Go to the page for the relevant exam via the VMware Certification site
2. Click the "Register Now" link on the respective exam page
3. Login to your VMware myLearn account (there's a "one time only" confirmation page to click through)
4. Schedule and pay for the exam
It's great to finally have such a simple process!
