Now that we have released most of the version 6 certifications on our roadmap, it is time to retire some of the older version 5 certifications. These exams are based upon older content and by retiring them it allows us – and you – to focus on the newest VMware technology.
After the retirement date (shown below) the following certification exams will be retired and no new registrations will be accepted.
June 2, 2016
- VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 — Data Center Administration (VCAP5-DCA)
- VMware Certified Implementation Expert — Network Virtualization (VCIX-NV)
June 24, 2016
- VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 — Data Center Design (VCAP5-DCD)
- VMware Certified Professional — Cloud (VCP-Cloud)
If you already have an exam scheduled prior to the retirement date for these exams, you will be able to complete it. If your appointment falls after the retirement date, you may either reschedule for an earlier date or contact PearsonVue to receive a refund and take the newer version.
If you have specific questions or concerns please contact the Certification Support team.
