VMworld 2011 VMware Certification Exams (VCP, VCAP, VCA)

Dont know how many people knew this already. I just finished an email thread with the great folks over at certification@vmware.com aka EduOps.  I asked about if there were any certifications I could get at VMworld 2011 and if so what site would I register under when I go on Pearson VUE. The anwser is they are not doing certs this year. 

 

Here is the meat of the email:

Subject: RE: Question if VCP, VCAP, etc. exams will be available at VMworld 2011 [ ref:00D49hQR.5008G8Bc9:ref ]

The reason you cannot find any testing information associated at VMworld is that this year we do not have any plans to offer Certification Testing during either VMworlds.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Regards,

VMware Certification

 

I also requested that it be posted somewhere obvious either on VMworld.com or on the cert pages. I know I've seen several people asking about it on twitter and other social media.

 

Cheers,

Well, that dashes my hopes of finding a discount on the VCAP exams.

That's a shame.

 

I have a ten week wait to sit the VCAP-DCD at home, hoped VMworld might cut some time from that.

 

HamR.

Darn... I too was hoping to take the exam at VMworld at a discount. Oh well...
