DCD Numbers

Hey folks

Anyone passed the DCD and got their DCD number recently ? Just curious as to what the numbers are these days.

Thanks

DCA and DCD are different.

But I suppose that with v5 remain the same (as for the others certifications).

I took mine July 12 and just got my number. VCAPDCD-2194. Wondering how they heck the number could have jumped so drastically. Any ideas?

I got the same thing mine was 2173 for DCD5.  A coworker took the DCD4 a few weeks after my exam and he got a number in the 500's.

This makes no sense.

I emailed VMware about it but they are so SLOW to respond this year we will probably never find out.

This may be a well known fact, but if you happen to have multiple accounts (say, if you worked for a couple partners) your transcripts could end up on any of the accounts  You can call VMware certification support and have the combine the accounts.

That being said, my DCD5 number is the same as my DCD4.

I received notifaction that I passed the beta DCA5 and would guess that I'll get the same number there also.

If suppose that you wasn't also a DCD4, correct?

In this case it make sense, also in VCP5-DT the new people (not VCP4-DT) have higher numbers (starting from 1000).

So seems that there are at least 173 people that are VCAP5-DCD and not VCAP4-DCD.

The problem is that there are MANY missing.  Last I knew the DCD numbers stopped at 500 something then picked up in the low 2000's.

Perhaps it's possible that 1500 people took it over the span of 3 months and completely forgot to post, blog, tweet, etc about it.  But I'm skeptical.

I'm curious if the DCA is doing the same.

The official word from VMware was that they jumped to 2000 for people who started with dcd5 skipping everything in between the last dcd4 and the first dcd5. Dcd4 who pass 5 kept their lower 4 number.

I'm VCAP4-DCD and I passed the VCAP5-DCD last month. Surprisingly, I received a new number for VCAP5-DCD so I'm now VCAP4-DCD 328 and VCAP5-DCD 2329 :smileyconfused:

I passed the VCAP5-DCD exam just a few days ago and was curious to know how many people had the VCAP5-DCD qualification. I emailed the VMware certification team and they replied yesterday telling me that as of this week there were about 350 globally. So..... good to know.
