VMware VCP-DCV Certification Information for VMware IT Academy Students
Attending Courses after 1 January 2018

For candidates interested in becoming certified as a VCP6-DCV or VCP6.5-DCV, there are two options to choose from. Candidates must complete all steps from either Option A or Option B in order to receive their credential.

Option A: Commercial Training Path (commercial courses appear in MyLearn / Certification Manager)
  • Step 1) Complete a qualifying certification course either directly from VMware or from a VATC (VMware Authorized Training Center)*
  • Step 2) Pass the vSphere 6.x Foundations commercial exam (2V0- -602 [v6.5] or 2V0-620 [v6.0])
  • Step 3) Pass the VCP 6.x - Data Center Virtualization commercial exam (2V0-622 [v6.5] or 2V0-621[v6])
*See full requirement details on our main VCP6-DCV / VCP6.5-DCV certification page. Be sure to select the path that best fits your qualifications.

Option B: IT Academy Training (IT Academy courses do not appear in MyLearn / Certification Manager. IT Academy students use a special academic (‘PSE’) exam voucher for the VCP-DCV exam to provide qualifying training course credit. Students must complete the VCP6.x-DCVPSE exam using the voucher provided by the Academy instructor)
  • Step 1) Take vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage and/or vSphere Optimize and Scale course at an IT Academy**
  • Step 2) Pass the vSphere 6.x Foundations exam (2V0- -602 [v6.5] or 2V0-620 [v6]).
    Note: there is no special academic (‘PSE’) exam voucher for the vSphere 6.x Foundations exam.
  • Step 3) Pass VCP 6.x - Data Center Virtualization ‘PSE’ exam (2V0-622PSE [v6.5] or 2V0-621PSE [v6]) using the special academic exam voucher provided to the student by the IT Academy instructor
**Academy course attendance will not appear in MyLearn / Cert Manager. The vSphere: ICM course alone does not qualify as fulfilling the training course requirement on the IT Academy path. Thus, the student must register for and pass the special academic PSE version exam (listed under “PSE Exams” section on the Pearson “Select Exam” registration page) in order to receive qualifying course credit required for VCP-DCV certification.

Important: VMware will NOT certify a candidate if:
  • The student attended both courses (vSphere: ICM and vSphere: Optimize & Scale) at an IT Academy but DID NOT register for the special academic version (‘PSE’) of the VCP 6.x-DCV exam (2V0-622PSE [v6.5] or 2V0-621PSE [v6]) using the voucher provided by the instructor. VMware will not accept commercial (non-academic/‘PSE’) versions of the VCP6-DCV or VCP6.5-DCV exams.
