New VCP on VMware Cloud

VMware recently did a public release of the latest addition to the VCP line-up - the VMware Certified Professional - VMware Cloud (VCP-VMC)

But, what is it about?

Taken from the VCP-VMC page, here's a description of the certification:

"The VMware Certified Professional - VMware Cloud certification validates a learner's ability to identify key components of a VMware Cloud solution, including how to connect and migrate to VMware Cloud (across different hyperscaler partners) and the benefit of VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid. Certification earners have demonstrated a fundamental understanding of storage, networking, security, business continuity and disaster recovery, as well as the ability to monitor and troubleshoot, in a VMware Cloud environment."

I knew this certification had been coming for months now, we have had our pre-sales teams around the globe completing the training and exam - we already have a LOT of VCP-VMC holders internally!

At the time of writing, there are two paths of requirements depending on your current certification status:

  • If you hold a recent VCP, the only firm requirement for VCP-VMC is to pass the exam
  • If you don't hold a recent VCP, you must also complete training as well as passing the exam

For more details about the exam, visit the VMware Cloud Professional page.

The Designing, Configuring, and Managing the VMware Cloud training is not offered in a traditional instructor-led way, it is online only, and covers technologies from across the VMware portfolio - the SDDC infrastructure platform, workload management and deployment, plus operations and maintenance.

VMware did offer a number of exam vouchers for free, and at the time of writing they are still offering the training at no cost - check the latest status on this blog post.
