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.
