One year ago I’ve written about the VMware exams and related products version but in the past months something has changes in VMware exams and the described criteria is not (completely) valid.
But on April 7, VMware released a new exam to qualify candidates for the VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Administration (VCAP5-DCA) Certification. This new exam (exam code VDCA550) is based on vSphere v5.5, where the existing exam (exam code VDCA510) is based on vSphere v5.0.
So seems not only a strategy about the recertification (unless it will extended also to VCAP exams), but a way to refresh the exams and the related environment considering the several changes from v5.0 to v5.5.
Let’s see if there will also some update in other exams.
