VMWare quietly released its VCA-DT certification exam to beta on February 15, and that period expired yesterday (February 20, 2011). I didn’t manage to catch on to this new addition to the VMWare cert family until today, at which point the exam is now live and readily available. Shoot, the company hasn’t even issued a press release on this latest member of the lineup. That said, the cert is designed to “recognize individuals with the technical capabilities and real-world expertise needed to increase efficiency, reliability, and availability when delivery desktops from the datacenter as a managed service.”
Of course, this is just an associate level certification, so we can expect to see more in this same vein from VMWare, probably later this year. Stay tuned for more on this as it breaks: I’ll try not to miss the beta announcement the next time around!
