is there any justification/reason/advantage to having multiple VCP certifications?
I am a VCP-DCV with the intent on taking VCP-Cloud as I use this on a daily basis. But if there is no advantage I cant justify it.
At the moment, there are 2 benefits - recertification of your current VCP, and having another certification.
In the next generation of certifications, there will be special recognition for those who hold VCPs in multiple disciplines.
