It is being offered for the first time at my local CC and can be taken as continuing ed or credit. $185.00 not including materials - and does include a discount on the exam. It will be interesting to see what the lab machines will look like and how they will be setup to teach the course.

    I built a white box over the weekend and got esxi and a couple of VM's going on it. I guess I get to sit on the front row

    Is that 185 * 3 credits = $555?

    Mine was $599 not including the books. Books and labs are the same as the commerical class, but you work teams due to resources.

    The books (+labs) are now in digital format with UCSC. It costs only 18$US. You can use it on PC, Mac or iPad.

    $185 total price, and I'm guessing that does not include the books. I will not find out about the books until 3/20. If they are the same are you still looking to sell? Class is Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30-8ish. 600 isn't bad if it supports your lifestyle better - I think yours was weekend.

    Thats a good deal for $185. Mine was through the Continuing Education and is probably the reason for being more. Still cheaper than the 3k price tag. It was 5 Saturdays, 8-5. I'm still using the books at this time.

    I took the course there. Was the first one for VCP5 and the first one they had of the year. It was only $1000 but I can see how they increased it. Even at $1500 they are still cheaper than the normal $3500. Still sucks though.

    The labs were nested ESXi hosts running on their clusters. It was a bit slow at times but performed well overall. They basically give you a View desktop into their environment and you work from there. 24/7 access to the desktop and to your equipment. A newbie is still going to need tons of practice and labs. But it gives you a pretty good foundation.

    I'm probably only taking 1 class over the summer and it is an Advanced Server technology class that is pretty much all VMware. Wonder if I'll get a voucher at the end of the class. I noticed my University is on that list.

    QHalo or anyone who took the CCC&TI course, was attendance critical? Since the class schedule is in eastern standard time, there's no way I would be able to attend it. I did talk to the course organizer and he said sometime one has to be live with course for some sort of registration.

    It's a bummer that they raise the cost to $1500 bucks. A few months ago, it was at $1000.

    Is the UCSC course still going? I've just checked it and it only has the "inquire" button. Where as before, they have a schedule and cost of the course.

    Also, does anyone know how soon do I have to complete the vmware course after I passed the VCP5 exam in order to become a VCP5 officially?

    Bumping an old thread for the same question. Is attendance mandatory? I really want to get in on this but have to work late a few nights a week.

    Talk to your instructor, and adviser before signing up for the class. Instructor might [he is NOT required to, it all depends on the teacher's willingness to help you out] give you some extra credit work to do, to make up for the missing classes.

    I've heard of some colleges offer it cheaper but not in the last year. To be honest, I think the cost is properly alighned. I think it keeps the value up on the certification. You may want to rethink why you are getting the cert, and what value you put on educating yourself. Yes, 1-2k for a class is expensive, yet if it helps get you a job making more money than isn't it worth it? After having a solid year working in VMare and getting the VCP5, I'm now getting offers for 30k more than I made the year before.

    Does anyone in the San Antonio, Texas area have any experience with a class like this at all? I thought about exploring this option during this upcoming fall semester.

    I contacted my uni (alma mater and previous employer) and even though they were on the spreadsheet, they didn't have any info on the program. Emailed VMware and keeping my fingers crossed.

    That's my issue. A local community college is on the spreadsheet but I can't find any info on their website. Guess I'll have to make a visit out there.
