Summary:
For individuals who install, manage and deploy VMware vSphere virtualization environments. (VMware Certified Professional 5 / VCP5 has been renamed VMware Certified Professional 5 - Data Center Virtualization VCP5-DCV).

Initial Requirements:
You must attend a VMware authorized course, gain hands-on experience with VMware vSphere, and pass the VCP Exam ($225). At our last check, about 9 courses were on the list of accepted courses, includingVMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage; VMware vSphere: Troubleshooting, VMware vSphere: Advanced Fast Track, and VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale. These are instructor-led courses with some online options.

A GoCertify visitor tipped us off that there's a lower-cost route. You may be able to find the course at half the cost through a VMWare IT Academy. These are academic institutions (such as a community college) rather than training companies, so the courses are spread over a greater time period - for example, 4 weeks of evenings instead of 5 full days.

Continuing Requirements:
None.
