Course Description

InfoSec Institute’s VMware boot camp combines a 30-day pre-study course with seven full days of immersive, instructor-led training. Our program is designed specifically for system and network engineers requiring full knowledge of VMware vSphere virtualization solutions. Successful completion of our VMware boot camp includes the following certifications:

  • VMware Certified Professional 6.5 – Data Center Virtualization (VCP6.5-DCV)
  • VMware Certified Associate – Digital Business Transformation (VCA-DBT)

As the demand for IT professionals with data center virtualization skills increases, it is essential to distinguish yourself in the market with certifications that validate your technical capabilities. Earning your VCP6.5-DCV and VCA-DBT does just that.

These industry-recognized certifications require completion of a VMware-authorized training course and experience with VMware technologies. VCP6.5-DCV and VCA-DBT certification confirms that you have the education needed to successfully install, deploy, scale and manage VMware vSphere environments.

Our VMware boot camp consists of two components:

  1. 30-Day Online Pre-Study Course: This self-paced course requires five to eight hours per week, along with pre-scheduled 90-minute WEBEX sessions each Saturday with your assigned instructor. The content is comprised of e-books and online labs of official VMWare material. You must complete this online course to sit for the VMware certification exams.
  2. VMware Certification Boot Camp: This seven-day, hands-on course will prepare you to pass your VCP6.5-DCV and VCA-DBT exams on your first attempt. The VCP6.5-DCV certification has a mandatory VMware course prerequisite. Our program fulfills the course requirement and includes the vSphere Foundations, VCP6.5-DCV and VCA-DBT exams.
