    I would say that the VCA has about the same worth as the CCENT or MCP, it's an introduction to the virtualisation stack (Cloud, DCV or Mobile, Networking to arrive soon). It's not a VCP, it's not the same level as the VCP and shouldn't be confused with the VCP (much like the VCE exam that people take and think get's them their VCP).

    Having sat two of the exams I can't say that they were hard but definitely the Cloud exam was the harder of the two exams.

    I would also say that if they were at the full price I wouldn't have taken any of the exams, instead relying on my VCPs.

    It's nice for people wanting to get into VMware virtualisation but that's pretty much it.

    I did it and I'm registered, I have 48 hours to take the exam. Call back, maybe you'll get someone better.

    Cant be done over the phone. Has to be done in person online only. The issue seems to still persist. They say it will be rectified in 24 hours.

    Just got off the phone with pearson vue.

    I keep getting a "the sign in information you provided is not correct error" but, from the email from VMWare, they indicated: "http://www.pearsonvue.com/vmware
    to schedule your exam. Login using the name and Candidate ID provided above." Am using my candidate name as username and candidate ID as password - have any of you had such an issue in logging into Pearson Vue to schedule the exam ?

    taternuts666 the code VCA501 is good. I have talked to VMware and Pearson Vue about this. Both said its the right code for a free test.
    All, you must call PeasonVue to get the discount, I smell fish on their end but after like 20 minutes of holding and waiting the rep. from Vue gave me the free exam.

    They said it was something wrong with the promotion code(yeah right )

    I just registered a couple of minutes ago. Call the above number and say you have a scheduling issue. They will transfer you to someone. They will register. If you want ask for Jody. She helped finish it in 2 minutes and I already have the 'you are registered for the exam VCA-DCV' email with me.

    Thats the idea. But Pearson has an issue with the ability to schedule it by yourself online. Thats why Call in and schedule. Write the exam at home on the web !

    It's official. Pearson sucks!

    "We are unable to complete your request for a username and password for a VMware, Inc. testing account without receiving your authorization from VMware. Please contact VMware at VMware Certification and request a resend of your file. Please resubmit your request after VMware sends us your file."

    I am losing interest in this ridiculous cert quickly.

    Called again this morning and well they scheduled the exam over the phone. Yesterday they say they can't do it now they can. I hate Person Vue this was a joke. Also nothing back from tech support.

    You have to get approval from vmware for taking the exam. Go to vmware site and register for the exam - this gives you approval. Then the exam ( Link given in the email ). Takes about 1 Hour for the the exam to get registered.

    I did that 4 days ago and got the email quickly. Did it for the VCA cloud as well as Desktop.

    Is certification@vmware.com the best way to contact them?

    That is a huge insult to those with a CCENT or MCP. The VCA is nothing but a sales and marketing tool for VMware. I would never put this cert on my resume unless I was interviewing for a VMware sales position.

    From reading in this thread, it doesn't seem like the VCA is highly regarded (for good reason). That being said, do you think it would provide some basic value to someone trying to enter the IT field, along with CompTIA certifications? I figured it might be worth putting the VCA Cloud on my resume with my inexperience in the IT field (career change). Surely I would stop including it once I eventually obtain higher-level certifications. Thoughts on including it for someone entering the field? Is the Cloud the best choice of the free VCAs?
