Based on the "New Candidate Requirements" i was expecting that the VCIX6-DCV badge was the only certification needed for a VCDX6-DCV application,
However, i have now discovered in the handbook:
Must hold the VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization (VCP6- DCV) certification.
There is also a field "VCP6-DCV" date in the application form
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.
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.
