Our intention is to make VMware certification the most relevant and active virtualization certification in the market. Part of this includes retiring exams on older versions of our products. And so, we will be retiring the two exams related to the VMware Certified Professional 5 – Data Center Virtualization (VCP5-DCV) certification.
- VCP5-DCV Exam (VCP550)
- VCP5-DCV Delta Exam (VCP550D)
We will stop taking new registrations for these exams after March 15, 2017. If you are making a new exam appointment, you must schedule it before March 31, 2017.
Once these exams are retired you will no longer be able to earn a new VCP5-DCV certification. Of course, if you already hold the VCP5-DCV certification it will remain yours as long as you recertify every two years.
If you have specific questions or concerns please contact the Certification Support team.
