To achieve VCP-DT status, you must complete two exams:
- Pass the VMware Certified Professional 5 (VCP5) exam
- Pass the VMware Certified Professional – Desktop (VCP5-DT) exam
In my journey into achieving the VCP5-DT certificate there have been several resources which I have used. As I’ve always been a big fan of TrainSignal’s training. I decided to use their VMware View training to study for my VCP-DT. Besides the online training I also used the VCP5-DT Blueprint Study Guide from SpeakVirtual.
Brian Knudtson (blog/twitter) teams up with Lane Leverett (VCDX#53) (twitter) to deliver 7 hours and 30 minutes of all there is to know about VMware View. The course takes you through 15 lessons which cover everything that is listed on the VCP5-DT Exam Blueprint…and more. As you can see from the outline below you will be exposed to everything from the core installation of View 5, to Configuring Virtual Desktops, Maintaining Desktop Pools, User Profiles and Troubleshooting and monitoring View.
