VCPs and VCAPs Around the World: Are You on the Map?

Now more than ever IT certifications and learning programs are proving critical to the professional development of IT leaders, teams and organizations.


Currently, VMware Certified Professional (VCP) and VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) represent two of the most popular levels of certification offered by VMware to validate your knowledge and skills. These certifications provide many benefits and span across five tracks including:

  • Data Center Virtualization
  • Cloud Management and Automation
  • Desktop and Mobility
  • Network Virtualization
  • Digital Workspace.


Just as we have done in the past with our VCDXs, we’ve put together two new infographics outlining where in the world the VCPs and VCAPs are as well as some benefits of getting certified.


Enjoy the infographics, and, if you are a VCP or VCAP, let us know in the comments where you are and which certification you have.

  3. Netherlands:

    VMware Certified Professional 6 – Network Virtualisation
    VMware Certified Professional 7 – Desktop and Mobility
    VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization
    VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Administration

  4. Awesome data – I had no idea there were that many VMware certified folks! Would be nice to know how many have achieved the VCIX milestone (just out of curiosity). I’m figuring if about 4% of VCP folks have at least one VCAP, then about 25% of those folks might have both VCAPs to make the VCIX but that’s just a SWAG).

  6. Nice infographics, but i don’t see my VCAPs for my country Nicaragua in the map :O

    Maybe a directory for VCAPs, VCDXs and VCIs should be nice to have, similar to Google Certification Directory for example.

    Best Regards

    1. Hi Jose,

      Thank you for the feedback. We currently do publish a directory for VCDX – check out vcdx.vmware.com . We have VCAPs in hundreds of countries around the globe and we add bubbles showing the numbers for only the largest countries. If we tried to show every country, the map would be so busy, it would be unreadable.

    1. Hi Brian, We have been posting the certification numbers for the various certifications. Check out our new VCDX post with those numbers. We will look into potentially running the numbers for badges. Badges are typically stepping stones towards the various certifications, so up until now, we have been focused on the big rocks!
