Delta Exam - New VCP-DCV Exam

After introducing the Recertification Policy, many who hold VCP5-DCV certification asked about options for recertifying at your current level, specifically if you were not looking to expand to other solution tracks or advance to the VCAP level. We heard you and are pleased to announce a streamlined exam that offers a quicker route to recertification for current VCP5-DCV holders. 

The exam is offered to current VCP5-DCVs who took the VCP510 exam and need to renew their VCP5-DCV credential prior to March 10, 2015. The exam will be available through November 30, 2014 and offers some key advantages: 

- Based only on new material between the vSphere 5.0/5.1 and vSphere 5.5 exams – you save hours of prep time 
- Available online – you can take it from any location 
- Far less expensive – you save money 

If you hold a VCP5-DCV certification, this is the quickest route to recertification. This limited time opportunity – the exam will only be offered until November 30, 2014.

I would highly encourage you to recertify sooner than later!

Question about Recertifying?

It's pretty simple: take a VCP exam or higher to recertifiy. Recertifying will basically reset the clock: meaning whatever date you take the exam (VCP or higher) and pass, your expiration will reset for another 2 years (based on the HIGHEST exam you decide to take). 

For example:

**I VCP-DCV will expire on March 1, 2015

**I take the VCAP-DCD exam on November 1, 2014 and pass
**My new expiration date for any exam VCAP-DCD and LOWER will reset to 2 years after November 1, 2014 (aka November 1, 2016
