VMware IT Academy enables university faculty, technical instructors, and secondary education teachers to deliver authorized VMware courses in a variety of settings. Students can jump-start their career and VMware knowledge with coursework through a global network of colleges and universities, and through online certification opportunities, hands-on labs, and other VMware learning resources.
VMware is committed to Education and supporting our academic community through our VMware IT Academy program. By listening to our community, we ensure that together we develop an academic program that aligns to your students’ educational needs.
We are reinstating Optimize and Scale (O&S) into the IT Academy curriculum. With this change we are reverting to the voucher process that was used before August 31, 2018.
For the Defined IT Using VMware, Solutions 3 course, a PSE voucher for the Foundations exam (602) is available to distribute to students after they complete the course. We will also be offering the PSE voucher for the 622 exam as we have previously done. This PSE voucher will give students the required class credit from VMware.
The special academic PSE voucher for the vSphere: Foundations exam (2VO-602 PSE) is listed on the Pearson-Vue site, under Available Exams, under, IT Academy Students- PSE Exams section.
The VMware IT Academy is an educational program focused on building the IT skills of secondary and post-secondary students. IT Academy provides resources for educators who deliver authorized VMware courses.
NOTE: Courses are not intended for non-academic purposes, such as training campus IT staff or delivering for-profit training to a professionals.
