VCP-Cloud Exam Released

Today we released the VCP-Cloud exam, which gives you two ways to earn your VCP-Cloud certification depending on where you are in your career.

Path 1
If you are already a VCP5-DV (VMware Certified Professional 5 – Datacenter Virtualization, formerly known as VCP5), all you need to do is pass the IaaS exam to earn your VCP-Cloud certification. There are two courses that can help you prepare for this exam, but they aren’t required:

Path 2
If you are just starting with VMware technologies or don’t have VCP5-DV certification, then you need to take two steps to earn your VCP-Cloud certification:

  1. Attend one of these qualifying courses:
  2. Pass the VCP-Cloud exam

      Hi Valerian,

      You have two options to earning VCP-Cloud certification.

      Path 1 – Upgrade your current VCP4 certification to VCP5-DV (by attending a vSphere 5.x What’s New course & passing the VCP5-DV exam) and then take & pass the IaaS exam


      Path 2 – Attend a qualifying vCloud course and take/pass the new VCP-Cloud exam.
