VCPs for vSphere 6.0 and 6.5 retired at the end of August.
Take a look at this page: VMware Certified Professional - Data Center Virtualization 2019 (VCP-DCV 2019)
As you're not currently a VCP, you'll need to take a vSphere 6.7 class.
EDIT: As you're already a VCP5-DCV, you just need to pass 1 exam.
(Disclaimer: I do NOT work at/for VMware, but I am certified as a VCP-DCV since VCP4-DCV and I'm currently a VCP6.5-DCV)
I've noticed that "geekinput" has written the following in his message: "I still have the VCP5-DCV certification."
Under those circumstances, I think that he may follow the "Certification Path" for the "if you hold a VCP5 or VCP6-DCV" case that is listed at the "VMware Certified Professional - Data Center Virtualization 2019 (VCP-DCV 2019)" web page, namely the following one, that only requires that he passes one Exam (step "3. Pass the Professional Data Center Virtualization Exam") that, according to the same web page, can be one of the following two exams:
115 MINUTES 70 QUESTIONS $250
- Professional vSphere 6.7 Exam 2019 [ EXAM NUMBER = 2V0-21.19 ]
75 MINUTES 40 QUESTIONS $250
- Professional vSphere 6.7 Delta Exam 2019 [ EXAM NUMBER = 2V0-21.19D ]
The "VMware Recertification Rollback 2019 Policy FAQ" - https://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/certification/vmware-recertification-rollback-faq.pdf - also includes the following two Questions and Answers (among others) that I believe are relevant in this case:
" (...) Q. If my VCP certification has expired, does this mean that it is active again?
A. In some cases, yes. If you hold one of the certifications shown below and it shows expired, it will change to being active again in April 2019. If your certification changes to being active, you can complete the upgrade path to earn the latest version. You do not need to complete the Expired path to recertify.
Data Center Virtualization: VCP5-DCV or VCP6-DCV
Network Virtualization: VCP-NV or VCP6-NV
Cloud Management & Automation: VCP-Cloud, VCP6-CMA or VCM7-CMA
Desktop & Mobility: VCP6-DTM or VCP7-DTM
Q. I am an expired VCP5-DCV. If my certification is now active again, can I use an upgrade path to certify on VCP-DCV 2019?
A. Yes! You can now earn the VCP-DCV 2019 by passing one of the current exams. You will not be required to take additional training or pass the Foundations exam.
I hope this helps
Apologies - I missed the rather important detail about already holding the VCP5-DCV.
In which case - the training is "recommended" rather than "required", and you just need to pass 1 exam.
I am in a somewhat similar position. I have been training the last 3 months, quite intensively for the VCP 6.5 DCV exam.
Yesterday wanted to book the exam, only to discover it is no longer there.
I am afraid i will have to spend another 3 months training now, because i feel like i have to start almost from scratch.
I noticed training for the 2119 exam is different than training for the 6.5 exam.
