    Default VCP 6 Exam question

    Hello,

    Please don't be mad if this has been already discussed. I wasn't able to find any relevant info..

    In order to take the VCP exam, I only have to buy the Exam Voucher, like Microsoft sells their exams?
    From what I was able to find, in order to take the exam you need to pay for VMWare's ridiculously expensive trainings.

    Can't I just buy the exam voucher and take the exam without their trainings?

    Thank you,
    Marius

    You have to have the training in order to become certified. There's no way around it.

    The cheapest option is to take the online course (vSphere 6.0: Install, Configure, Manage) at Stanly.edu.

    http://vmware2.stanly.edu/waitlist.aspx

    Get on the waitlist, take the course, you get a discounted voucher to take the exam.

    Yes a class is required. The exam part is just like Microsoft - purchase the voucher and take the exama.

    Stanley is really cheap, i think a few hundred dollars. If you were to take the training elsewhere it's going to run you about $3,000.

    You can also pay by credit card, a voucher is just a form of pre-payment - often paid at the same time as training fees.

    Stanly (and other academic partners) issue you a special type of voucher for what's call the "PSE" version of the exams.

    Take the training with VMware or a commercial partner and you'd pay for the exams via credit card or voucher.

    stanly is a great option. I'm enrolled in the VCP v6 ICM class kicking off next month and the course fee is $185 plus textbooks. The textbook purchase is either eBook for $35 or hardcopy for $45 plus shipping
