VMware vSphere 5.5 VCP5-DCV FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

Administrators, technicians and virtualization specialists who need to understand the ways in which vSphere 5.5 is unique should take this course.
Yes, this training is associated with VMware's VCP5-DC5 certification and exam. When this VMware vSphere course was originally written, the VCP5-DC5 was VMware's most up-to-date certification for virtualization specialists. That cert is now retired, but the information inside it remains extremely valuable for anyone still administering vSphere 5.5.
VMware updates their certifications and the exams for them frequently, so you should check what the most current vSphere administration certification is. At the time of this writing, the Data Center Virtualization 2022 (VCP-DCV 2022) is the newest VMware cert you can work toward after you finish this vSphere course.
You should take this VMware vSphere training if you're a virtualization specialist or network administrator and you've just found out that your company or organization is still using vSphere 5.5. Most training resources will reference newer versions, but this course is relevant to the older, still perfectly functional, version.
