Passed VCP6.5-DCV after official training without foundation exam

Jump to solution

I passed VCP6.5-DCV exam by taking official training, still no email received from VMWare but I can see my result under vmware certification manager, someone told me I have to take online vSphere 6.5 Foundations Exam (2V0-602) too to get my final VCP6.5-DCV certification, is it true?

Yes.

At at the moment, you have only met 2 out of the 3 formal requirements for VCP6.5-DCV.

First of all, congratulations for passing the exam.

If you are new to the VCP cetification, you will need to complete all of the requirements as shown in "Path 1" at VCP6-DCV Certification . The Foundation Exam is one of those.
