Redesigned IT Academy for 2018
We are excited about revamping our IT Academy Program this year. We are improving the Academy curriculum to make it more relevant for today’s learner. On August 1st, we are replacing our advanced commercial VCP-DCV courses with three academic-friendly courses to prepare students with the knowledge and skills needed for the IT jobs of the future.
The documents below will describe our courses in more detail and answer any questions you may have about the IT Academy Program. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional questions.
Certification Changes for 2018
VMware will NOT certify a candidate if a student attended both courses (vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage and vSphere: Optimize & Scale) at an IT Academy but DID NOT register for the special academic version (“PSE”) of the VCP 6.x-DCV exam (2V0-622PSE [v6.5] or 2V0-621PSE [v6]) using the voucher provided by the instructor. VMware will not accept commercial (non-academic/”PSE”) versions of the VCP6-DCV or VCP6.5-DCV exams. Please read this important document for more information about this change.
