Hi virtual_1428 and welcome to the Communities.

There are a number of free vmware training materials available and also some available for purchase but be advised that you will not attain the VCP acreditation without sitting an official VMware approved cource:

EG:

(VCP5-DCV) VCP-Datacenter Virtualization

  • Attend a qualifying VMware authorized course.
  • Gain hands-on experience with VMware vSphere 5.
  • Pass the VCP5-DCV Exam.

Here's a link to some free VMware training videos

VMware Training Top Free Courses

There are currently no free exam codes that i'm aware of

Hi,

I am an emc storage professional and in our datacenter virtualised enviornment we do have vmware vsphere, etc..

Hence, wanted to do a certification so that we can have an accreditation...

However attending vmware authorised course seems to be above my budget for an individual like me...

May be i need to check with my organisation once.. if they can do something..

Anyways thanks for the info ...

There are two other options:

1. Look at the VCA certifications - they are "starter" certifications, the recommended elearning training is free so you just pay for the exams:

VMware Certification

2. Take the vSphere training (for VCP) with a VITA - academic institutions can also offer the training, some allow registrations from outside the state/country, and they are often cheaper (although the requirements for a VITA and their instructors are lower than for VATC (commercial) training partners):

VMware IT Academy Program – VMware Labs
