Preparing for VMware Certification


For you guys who’ve been following, this blog site started last year as a way for me to share everything my thoughts, experiences, learnings or anything basically as I go through my Cisco Certification. My blog started with the title “Road to CCNA” which changed to “Road to CCNP R&S”. 

More than a week ago,I have done my tshoot exam sealing my CCNP Routing and Switching. Being in the IT industry, knowing that technology keeps on changing, I feel that I cannot contend myself to Cisco. I have been having this inkling to get into VMware since last year. 

CCIE R&S will still be the ultimate goal however with the expense and time to get that cert, I don’t think it will be feasible…for now. 

TAFE Brisbane is a VMware IT academy and I would like to take advantage of the materials at our disposal to study for the certs. The main difference between VMware and Cisco is that before you can get your VMware Certified Professional cert, they have to make sure you went through their accredited training. That would mean spending money on training instead of just buying books or watching vids to study. 

An immediate option would be to take VMware Certified Associate in Data Center Virtualization which only requires the recommended online training by VMware academy before they allow you to take the online exam by pearsonvue. 

The goal is to finish off the year with CCNP R&S and VCA-DC to beef up my resume….here we go!!!
