After the recent change in the certification path for VCP4-DT I’ve got some doubts about the future of the VCA-DT certification (if is no more required for other *-DT certifications, why take it?).

But seems that this kind of certification will remain also in new 5 release (based on View 5 and vSphere 5), because some rumors give the possible release date of new DT certifications:

  • VCA5-DT (estimated availability late 2011)
  • VCP5-DT (estimated availability early 2012)

About the VCAP-DT certification, still there isn’t any official news, both for the v4 and, of course, the v5.
