FAQs

Will vSphere V6 courses satisfy the VCP6.5-DCV certification upon passing the exam?

No, you must complete a vSphere 6.5 course to achieve certification if you do not already hold a current VCP certification. If you have taken a vSphere 5.5 or V6 course, you may take the VMware vSphere: What’s New [V5.5 to V6.5] course and it will qualify.

Will earning VCP6.5-DCV certification re-certify my older VCP certification?

Yes, by passing the VCP6.5-DCV exam you will successfully re-certify.

Do I have to complete the requirements in the order listed?

No, however we strongly recommend that you do so. Also, please note that successfully registering to take an exam does not imply that you meet the certification requirements in full.

If I take a VCP6.5 course and become VCP6.5 certified, can I then later use that same course to gain a VCP6? Can the same course be used to gain 2 different level certifications?

No, a course can be used only once. If you complete a VCP6.5 course and pass the corresponding VCP6.5 exam(s), you are not able to use that same VCP6.5 course towards gaining a VCP6. However, since training is only required one time as long as you keep your VCP current, you are not required to take another training to earn a second VCP, so you can simply take another VCP exam to earn that certification.

How do I share my VCP6.5-DCV badge?

When you’ve earned a VMware badge, you will receive an email notification alerting you to claim your badge. When you accept your badge, you’ll be brought immediately into a sharing workflow that allows you to share to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, embed in a personal website, or share over email.

What are the benefits of a badge?

  • A single source that combines your credentials and provides a complete overview of your skills.
  • Digital badges allow for you to easily share your accomplishments in social media.
  • Provides employers with easy, valid verification of your VMware credentials.
