    Required Training for VCP6.5-DCV or VCP6.7-DCV

    BuddyM Novice

      Hello VM Community,

       

      I am planning to write VCP-DCV exam, but it require training course. Couple of years ago it did training from New Horizons.

       

      Below is the course overview and link for reference.

       

      My question is: Does this training fulfill the VCP-DCV training requirement either for 6.5 or 6.7? If it does, what kind of document do I need to provide?

       

      Thank you.
