    Hi Karl,

    in the VCDX6-DCV Blueprint is reported that VCP6-DCV is a pre-req but in the following page
    on “New Candidate Requirments” –> “Path1”
    is reported only as pre-req “Required Prerequisite: VCAP6-DCV Design and VCAP6-DCV Deploy certifications”.
    Wich is correct?

    Currently I hold VCAP6-DCV Deploy and in few weeks I want to schedule Design exam but I’ve not VCP6-DCV due to inheritance change…

    Hi Benja, we will be looking for the VCIX6 as the needed prerequisite. Since there are multiple ways a candidate may achieve that designation, it is possible ti have the VCIX6 and be able to apply for VCDX.

    In your case, since you already had the VCAPs and are just updating to VCAP6, once you earn them and are awarded the VCIX6, you will be eligible to apply.

    The blueprint lists the certifications needed from a “net new” candidate, someone who would start from the beginning to earn their first VCAP.
