Help Choosing my next Certification??

Version 1

    Hi all,

    First time posting hear, so hello!


    My question is:

    I hold a valid VCP5-DCV (version 5.5) and I was wondering what you recommend as my next level course??


    My cert expires Feb. 2017, so I don't do the next level I will just renew my DCV (VCP6 I assume this time).

    I see on this page: Data Center Virtualization Certification Solution Track Page

    that my I should be considering VCAP6-DCV Design or VCAP6-DCV deploy. Correct?

    What is the difference between the two exams?

    How hard are they compared to the VCP5 exam?

    Do I need a VCP6 before I can go to VCAP6 or is my VCP5 ok?


    What do you guys think?

    I love and enjoy the 'hardware' side of IT and hate programming side of things.


    Thanks in advance!
