VMware Retires its VCP5 DCV Exam and Certification

VMware is well-known for its innovative solutions in virtualization and automation of compute and networking resources, from the desktop to the cloud. Over 500,000 customers around the world have chosen the open standards and technologies as a strong foundation. IT professionals who want to earn reliable and trustworthy credentials are more inclined to take VMware certification exams. More professionals are discovering the VMware benefits and opting to take its exams.
As time passes, some exams will disappear. This is partly due to the desire to make VMware certification the most relevant, active virtualization certification on the market. This is why older versions are being retired from VMware products. We will now discuss the two exams that are associated with the VMware Certified Professional 5 Data Center Virtualization certification (VCP5DCV).
VCP5-DCV Exam (VCP550).
VCP5-DCV Delta Exam (VCP550D)
These exams will not accept new registrations beginning March 15, 2017. You must schedule a new exam appointment before March 31, 2017 if you want to register for these exams.
You will not be able to obtain a new VCP5/DCV certification after these exams are retired. If you already have the VCP5–DCV certification, it will be yours for as long as you recertify every 2 years.
