VMware Education has decided to make enhancements to the Desktop Virtualization Certification Program. Effective immediately, VMware Certified Associate 4 – Desktop (VCA4-DT) certification is not a pre-requisite for the VMware Certified Professional 4 – Desktop (VCP4-DT) exam.
For the new path see the official VCP-DT page.
All other requirements for the Desktop Certification Program remain the same: for the VCAP-DT certification (still no news about it and when the beta will start) require the VCP-DT (and also the VCP certification, but this was already required for the VCP-DT).
Why of this change? Maybe because there are really few VCP-DT people? Or just to simplify the certification path? IMHO at this point the VCA-DT certification will loose his role and utility.
