New VMware certification exams announced (6.5 version)

VMware has announced today the introduction of the new certification exams for version 6.5 (Datacenter Virtualization track).

Please refer to this blog post for information.

There are three new exams:

  • vSphere 6.5 Foundations (#2V0-602) – Foundation exam, that leads you to several higher certifications; See the exam guide here.
  • VCP6.5-DCV elective exam (#2V0-622) – VMware Certified Professional exam, for those that do not have earlier VCP certificatios; See the exam guide/blueprint here.
  • VCP6.5-DCV delta exam (#2V0-622D) – Delta exam, for those having VCP6 certification; See the exam guide/blueprint here.

It’s a bit confusing that exam guide both for 2V0-622 and 2V0-622D are the same.

While there’s yet no information about VCAP 6.5 (VMware Certified Advanced Professional, version 6.5), some comments on the blog post refer that the Advanced Professional certification will be available “latter this summer”,¬†Karl Childs said.

We’ll soon start new study guides for the announced exame. Hope you enjoy.
