VMware exam registration – IMPORTANT!

If you want to go for certification you must be authorized by VMware to do it. Info is found on Pearson VUE webpage:

Note: All VMware Certification exams require prior VMware authorization. If you would like to reschedule an exam that was originally scheduled for July 19, 2013, you will need to cancel your appointment, and gain VMware authorization at vmware.com/certification before you are able to reschedule your exam appointment with Pearson VUE.

(If you used an exam voucher when scheduling your original exam, you will be able to reuse it  when rescheduling.)

Exam

The exam is done online via PearsonVUE website. It has 50 questions and it takes 75 minutes. It is delivered in secure browser window where you are not allowed to copy content or click mouse, but who needs it 😉

VMware Hat-Trick

I took all three exams and I have to say even though they are entry-level I had to go through eLearning material. It was valid especially for VMware Horizon and VMware vCloud Director. I am not using those products by daily basis yet, so I really had to focus.

VCA-DCV

VCA-Cloud

VCA-WM

I wish you as well to pass all three exams.
