    Default VCP5 and EMC/NetApp classes online at Dallas County Community College

    For those of you not wanting to wait for Stanley CC, you can take official VCP5 and or EMC/NetApp courses at Dallas County Community College online as a credit or non-credit student.

    Just passed VCP5 today!

    Paid under $400 for course as a out of district student.

    Congrats on the pass!!

    This could come in handy when I upgrade to VCP6. You wouldn't know the cost of the EMC course would you? Otherwise I'll contact them when they come back on the 2nd...

    Do either EMC or NetApp have course requirements similar to VMware?

    For the EMC exam I think you just need to read the book and take the exam... If there was hands-on labs with the course then that would be preferable to me than just going the book only route.

    I took that class; which helped me get my VCP5_DCV and VCP5_CLOUD. I'm very interested in returing later for the EMC course. I am out of state (did remote from Ohio) and each course was $800 total. They DO payments with 50% down before the first day of the semester, and the last 50% due 4 weeks later (which helped me pay for the course as I paid out-of-pocket).

    I emailed Greg the course co-ordinator for the VMware and EMC/NetApp courses and he said the combined EMC/NetApp course was $295 without the book. I am not in the US so I will find out tomorrow what the cost is for outside the US and will update this thread.
    hello. The EMC and NetApp Course is combine to give each student a good foundation on EMC and NetApp Storage Arrays. The Intro EMC/NetApp Course will cost about $295.00 not including the book. This is a completely online course and you will have labs. So, the first 8 weeks we will focus on Storage Technology and discus EMC low end to mid range storage arrays. The next 8 weeks will be all NetApp Storage Training and labs. After completing the course you will be given vouchers to take both the EMCISM and NetApp Storage certifications. We have a few seats available and I would love to students from outside the US. Thank you Greg.

    OK so it's not immediately apparent how to register for this VMware or EMC/NetApp course if you are an international student - if you are interested in this course then follow these instructions.

    1. Do not register on eConnect or ring an international student advisor! This is what I did!

    2. Visit this continuing education page and phone the number listed there (972-273-3360).

    3. Tell them you wish to do the online VMware VCP or the online EMC/NetApp course.

    4. Give them your details and they will transfer you to the cashiers office with your new Student ID (take note of it).

    5. Give the cashier your Student ID and your credit card number.

    6. Go to NorthLakeCollege.edu and visit "Online Resources" in the top-right of the page - click on "eCampus" & then "Access Courses".

    7. You can now log in using your Student ID with the letter "e" before it - e####### and the password is the same as your student id until you change it on the next screen.

    8. That's it, you should be able to see your enrolled course now.


    Just to let you know there are only 14 spots on the EMC/NetApp course and the online Spring class is now full... it cost me $208!! bargain... to check for course availability:


    1. Check the schedule page and click the link to the Spring or Fall schedules. From there follow the links to VMware & EMC ISM. Take a note of the course ID.

    2. Click "Find CE/WT Classes" on this page.

    3. Select the term, North Lake College and the course of "ITNW - Information Sciences/Systems" and click submit.

    4. You should be able to view the class availability now.

    Enjoy!

    Your'e in luck cause someone dropped out of the course and there is a place available, check post #10 on how to sign up on Tuesday (Monday is a holiday in the US). I think it'll be pretty easy, it's over 16 weeks which is a bit long for a short book but I'll be doing other exams too so it probably won't be too bad. It starts on the 27th of this month. The next course is in the Fall (September-ish). And AFAIK you get discounted vouchers for the exam at the end of the course.

    AFAIK - the introductory EMC/NetApp class is geared towards EMCISA (E10-001) & NetApp NCSA (NS0-145)

    The Cloud Services class is geared towards EMCCIS (E20-002) - don't know which NetApp exam it matches up to.

    I'll be doing both, but not at the same time. I need to get confirmation from Greg this is the case though.

    I have my Student ID already and can login but they won't give you a student ID until after you give them your details (address, DoB, confirm there is a place available etc.) - signing up on eConnect doesn't work for some reason, it's better to phone them with your credit card.

    Where did you study for the VCP5_CLOUD? I'm not familiar of any relatively cheap institutions that offer it.
