VCP Welcome kit...

Hi,

I really don't know if VMware have got there sh1t together. Why, it's been 6 weeks to the day and I still haven't received the VCP welcome kit. The VMware web site says allow 4-6 weeks for delevery, however the when I sat the exam it sais there allow 30 days. Inconsistant, and I still don't have anything to formally prove I am a VCP.

I would say use your exam result printout as a proof for the time being.

A coworker just got his after about six weeks. They are really backed up. Patience...

It's been 9 weeks now! Still no kit.

Apparently they sent one to an incorrect address, where they got the address I don't know. The email I received said they used the address from Pearson VUE but my VUE profile was up-to-date, so to was my VMware profile. I have emailed the generic certification email address again, have I received a response, NO! And of course I have been just lucky that I haven't been asked for formal eveidence in job interviews, otherwise I would've been stuffed!!!! This is nothing short of pathetic, it can't be that hard surely..?

To rub salt into the wound, I did a Microsoft exam ~2 weeks after the VCP exam, and guess what I have received that certificate....

I hope someone from VMware reads this and something gets done because going through the normal channels clearly doesn't work.

In some ways VMware today reminds me a lot of Microsoft circa 1992. Fantastic, explosive growth underway and they are trying to catch up building the organization to support it all. VMware's advantages include better products and better users.
