The Workstation license hasn't been part of the program for some time now: Certification Benefits
this is the answer from Education Support.
Thank you for contacting VMware Education Support.
My name is Ruhi, and I have been assigned to work on your Support Request # xxxxxxxxx
As I understand, you need assistance with Workstation License key.
Please be informed, I do apologize, but unfortunately, VMware is no longer providing free Workstation Licenses to newly certified VCP-DCVs beginning August 31st, 2015.
We are truly sorry for the inconvenience.
i think we can fix the inconvenience by giving all new VCP or VCAP certified individuals a free 1 year VMUG Advantage subscription (including when they update there certification).
Would be no-brainier for VMware to promote there user groups to stay up to date with there skills, which will indirectly encourage employers to stick with VMware
