    I recently decided to book my VCP course up, unfortunately I booked it up just prior to being offered a perm position but as we aren't a VMware house it's not so bad as I wouldn't have got the VCP from them anyway.

    Anyway having spent a long time looking at the different training providers I knew I wasn't going to get much change from £2k, then I discovered a VMware Acadamy in London that offers the VCP over a 3 weekend time frame that's just amazingly cheap. My course is costing me just over £1k and is due to start in the next couple of weeks.

    I will post my thoughts and feeling on the training ala my Firebrand MCITP blog that I did last year.

    Many thanks mate. Will be eagerly awaiting your comments as I've been looking at doing the VCP at some point.

    Simon - did you ever get around to doing this course? What did you think of the 3-weekend setup??

    What company did you take the training with? I can't find the VCP4 course anywhere for less than 2.5k. Looks like my Google skills have failed me!
