Delivering Virtual Desktops and Applications with Horizon Online Training

In this intermediate VMware skills training, Jacob Moran covers the desktop virtualization portion of the certifying exam for the VCP - Desktop and Mobility 2020 (VCP-DTM 2020) certification.

Horizon is VMware's most popular virtualization product, which means demand for the skills in the VCP-DTM 2020 will continue to be high. After finishing this VCP-DTM 2020 training, you'll be ready to install, access, and configure Horizon 7 — and step into more senior desktop virtualization and virtualization engineer positions.

After completing this VMware training you'll know how to choose the most appropriate version of Horizon for your company, how to deploy Horizon, and how to install a VMware Horizon Connection Server, access and configure Horizon in preparation for desktop deployment, and publish session desktops and applications using RDS farms.

The VMware certification path might seem convoluted: in order to earn the VCP-DTM 2020, you have to pass the certifying exam titled VMware Professional Horizon 7.7 Exam 2019, the course number of which is 2V0-51.19. The exam is dated 2019, but the certification is for 2020, and this training covers the desktop virtualization portions of the exam.

For anyone who manages virtualization professionals, this VMware training can be used for VCP-DTM 2020 exam prep, onboarding new virtualization professionals, individual or team training plans, or as a VMware reference resource.
