I am pretty sure that this fulfils the requirements as the 6.5 is only a minor release not a major.
Good question - I've asked a couple of folks internally.
This fulfills the VCIX6.5 requirements, per Karl Childs. It won't reflect until they have released a 6.5 Deploy, or if the vendor that manages the badges adjusts the logic to show it.
There is no ETA on either of those items.
Thanks, that solves my inquiry I had about this as well.
I have VCAP-DCA5.5 certification and VCP6.0 DCV.
If I do VCAP-DCV 6.5 design , can I get VCIX-DCV batch.
I don't think you meet the requirements for VCAP6.5-DCV Design, based on your current certifications - check the various paths here: VMware Certified Advanced Professional 6.5 - Data Center Virtualization Design
You could do the VCAP6-DCV Design - check those paths here: VCAP6-DCV Design Certification
If you achieved VCAP6-DCV Design, that would give you VCIX6-DCV, based on the logic in this article: Changes to the VCIX Badge: Simplifying the Ways to Earn - VMware Professional Services and Education Insights
