    Hi no1youknowz

    To take the VCP Exam you must study at a certified training centre, which will set you back about £2800 for a 5 day course (Doesn't include VAT and Exam fee)

    VMWare is a great product, I have just installed it as part of a High Availability project at my office. Also great for testing trial software and building test environments.

    I read on a few job websites recently that the VCP cert will get you a great pay rise but I think it is still a cutting edge cert.

    Certifications: a few

    Thanks for that george.

    We have recently undergone a VM rollout, so I need to know how to use it. Trying to get my head round it until feb, when im going on a course that if i pass the exam at the end of it, then i become a VCP.
    Certifications: VCP,A+, N+, MCSA, MCSE

    There are actually two different courses you can go on now, both end at the same point though

    there is one Exam (VCP-310 at the moment I think) but either of two courses satisfies the 'attended a classroom course pre req)

    those are
    VMWare Infrastructure 3, Install and Configure: great for people new to VMWare, gives you the basics, gets you out of the door able to get a system up and running and basic troubleshooting

    the more advanced course
    VMWare Infrastructure 3, Deploy, Secure and Analyze: much more high end course, a lot more detail in the high end operation of a virtual infrastructure as well as advanced topics, this won't however cover the basics listed in the above course, which will still come up on the exam, so you will need to know those
    a lot of the content on this course wont be in the exam (there is only one exam after all)

    VMware have announced that they will be expanding there certification line to include the VMWare Certified Architect certification which is apparantly going to be VERY hard
    Certifications: MCSE, MCITP, VCP
    WIP: > 0

    I did the Fast Track course the other week which is basically the Install & Configure 4 day course in 2 days and the Design, Secure & Analyze course in the next 2.5 days.. I'm glad I did as either of those courses for their individual 4 days would have been a waste of time, 2 longer days for them seems to make much more sense.
