VCP-DCV 2020 needed as a prereq for VCAP-DCV 2020?

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I am currently gearing up to take the VCAP-DCV 2020 exam hopefully before the summer. I successfully passed the VCP-NV & DCV 2019 exams last April / May. It appears from the VCAP cert page that the VCP-DCV 2020 exam is needed as a prerequisite for the VCAP exam. Arent my VCP 2019 exams sufficient as a prerequisite without have to take the VCP-DCV 2020 exam? Seems a bit redundant to me.

IMO this is a bug on the web site.

According to the site, even someone already holding the VCP-DVC 2020 would need to earn that again (see screenshot)!?

As mentioned before, contact the VMware Certification team regarding this.

Maybe scott28tt​ can forward this to the team that's responsible for the web site.

Hi,

I checked and it looks like you're right. Try calling vmware support. In this link there are telephone numbers (https://www.vmware.com/education-services/training/contact-us.html) and ask for explanations.
