Hello Vincent,

The non PSE version of Professional VMware vSphere 6.7 - 2V0-21.19 is being retired at the end of December 2020 but if I understand your post correctly both VMware vSphere 6.7 Foundations Exam 2019 - 2V0-01.19PSE and Professional VMware vSphere 6.7 - 2V0-21.19PSE will continue to be available online from Pearson VUE until the end of July 2021 for those who have vouchers for the PSE exams (e.g., by passing the VMware ICM and O&S v6.7 courses).  Am I understanding correctly?

Thank you in advance,

- Richard

That is correct Richard.

For clarification: these PSE vouchers are only accessible to institutions enrolled in the VMware IT Academy program.

Does this mean that a student that took the 6.7 course at a VATC in say November would only have 1 month to pass the exam?

Thank you

Hi Scott

They seem to have wiped our previous correspondence regarding achieving the VCP?

New format I see!

Can I take the time to thank you for all the guidance given in getting me on the right path for the VCP. Everything seems to have fallen in place nicely, and pre planning for 7, in 2021. I really have achieved a lot this year, not just with vSphere, and will be looking forward with renewed confidence.

 

Thank you

Hi Scott

 

It was something else, but my history has been trimmed. Not to worry. Great advice given

So question. If I fail the exam before the Dec.31 date and there are no retake times available before then, can I retake the exam in January anyway or is that just it, and I have to move on to version 7?
