Is the "VCP6-DCV" needed for an application when we hold the "VCIX6-DCV" badge?

Jump to solution

Hi,

Based on the "New Candidate Requirements" i was expecting that the VCIX6-DCV badge was the only certification needed for a VCDX6-DCV application,

VCDX6-DCV Certification

However, i have now discovered in the handbook:

Must hold the VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization (VCP6- DCV) certification.

https://mylearn.vmware.com/lcms/web/portals/certification/Handbooks/VCDX6-DCV-Handbook.pdf

There is also a field "VCP6-DCV" date in the application form

https://mylearn.vmware.com/lcms/web/portals/certification/Applications/VCDX6-DCV-Application.pdf

I have the "VCIX6-DCV badge" but my latest VCP-DCV is version 4.

So is VCP6-DCV mandatory for the application when we hold already the "VCIX6-DCV" badge?

Note: I an waiting an answer from "Certification Support - Global" but if someone has the answer already i can adjust my plan earlier.

No.....

Not required.....U can go for forward to submit your design, as you are already have VCIX-6-DCV badge.

Hi,

VCP6-DCV is not mandatory indeed.

It has been confirmed by certification support:

As per our conversation, please be informed VCP6-DCV Certificate is not mandatory for the VCDX6-DCV Certification, VCIX6-DCV badge will serve as a requirement.
