I passed the exam 2V0-72.22 and received my badge without attending any training course. Im not sure if the badge is valid. At the end of last year I also passed the EDU-1202 Exam. Does the EDU-1202 belongs to "VCP-Spring 2020 or newer" such that the 2V0-72.22 Badge is valid even i didnt attended a training course?
There is a 3rd path for the Professional Develop VMware Spring which states the following "Certification Path if you hold a VCP-Spring 2020 or Newer" as described here: https://www.vmware.com/learning/certification/vcp-am-dev.html.
It doesn't sound to me like you have the VCP given that you have only passed the 2V0-72.22 exam.
What do you mean by "badge"?
The answers are on the page you linked it, the current paths:
Option 2 will disappear from the end of June when the EDU-1202 exam retires.
I think you need to attend training, you could email email@example.com and ask them to confirm.
Well i also passed the EDU-1202 last year. I then got the badge "VMware Spring Professional 2021". Attending a training course has been optional last year.
With badges i mean the credly badges you get after passing an exam: https://info.credly.com/
@scott28tt So where is difference between the first and the third path that you just wrote? The way you described them they are identical. It doesn't really matter if you hold a vcp-2020+ or not. There are just some more accepted courses in the third path. There is a little error in your first path as the training course has to be 2022 as well according to the caption for the step 2 from the website.
So assuming that VMware Spring Professional 2021 from last year is a VCP it should match the expression for the 3rd path: "VCP-2020 or newer"? The 3rd path is little bit confusing when compared to the first path. The training is no longer "required" and just an "option" and not a "step" as in the first path. So where is the difference between the first and the third path? Are there any further documents provided for clarification?
The page has the following content:
Thanks for the reply. Im going to write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I just noticed the difference with the VCP Spring 2020 or Newer path, you can either attend training OR pass the exam, whereas with no VCP certifications (Option 1) you have to attend training AND pass the exam.
I updated my previous post.
As I mentioned, it you want to be sure email email@example.com - I'm not part of that team, I'm an ex-instructor who has been helping people with training/certification questions here since my training days.
Thanks Scott for all the replies!
I agree, it's a little confusing, as we've been migrating the Pivotal legacy exam and credential over to the formal VMware certification program. Here's the net-net:
- no training required if you take the legacy Pivotal exam, which is the older version (EDU-1202)
- training is required if you take the newer exam (2V0-72.22)
The change had to do with the old program requirements vs the newer VCP standard requirements. So, if you'd like to take advantage of the non-required training, there is the option of passing the older exam up through June, but be aware it is an older version so may not reflect the latest product updates and changes.
