NEW: VMware Certified Technical Associate - Application Modernization 2021 (VCTA-AM 2021)

Another new exam and certification from VMware - this time it's the foundation-level certification covering the VMware Tanzu portfolio:

As will all other VCTAs, there is recommended training and a required exam, so a low "barrier to entry" for anyone who wants to earn the certification.
