VMware Certified Professional VCP is the base certification for VMware

Certifications in a virtual realm would not likely be of any help to an IT professional. However, actual certifications in virtual machines would be, as virtualization has branched out from a once predominantly tech support tool to web and application development, server management, and even cloud computing. VMware has long been the leader in this industry, and they offer the following three certifications:

VMware Certified Professional (VCP) The VCP is the base certification for VMware. The core competencies for this class are to install, manage, and deploy a VMware system. Unless you are already a VCP or have other certified VMware trainings, you will need to take one of 3 five-day courses before you can take the VCP exam.

VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) The VCDX is the highest level certification. Once you have a VCP certification, you can then request a review of your VMware knowledge and experience. If you qualify, you will then be permitted to take both an Administration and a Design exam. Passing those exams then allows you to prepare and submit an implementation plan, at which you will defend during a later interview. If you can jump through all these hoops (without falling), VMware will bestow upon you this certification.

VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) The newest of VMware’s certifications, VCAP is designed to be an intermediate level certification. The certification process of the VCDX is thorough, and the VCAP was created to fill the void of the VMware professionals that were not quite ready to attempt a VCDX certification, but certainly have the experience and training far above that of which is required for the VCP. A VCAP offers either an Administration or Design test, and your certification will reflect your specialty based on which of these tests you choose to take and pass.

Season Finale of The Walking Dead

Huh?! Wow.

Sorry I had to comment....

Season Finale of The Walking Dead

Want more cash? Get certified!

All of us in the field have seen that pages and pages of job listings asking for all kinds of certifications with silly acronyms. Sometimes it seems almost impossible to find one that doesn’t require some kind of certification, which could make many people question why they went to college in the first place when these little certificates are all they needed. While this may seem like a pain, things will most likely stay this way for the foreseeable future, so it might be a good idea to jump on the bandwagon now.

According to some, it is not only a good idea to go ahead and get the certification you want for new jobs, but they are also leading to promotions and raises. In fact, a survey featured in a networkworld.com article asked 700 neetworking professionals whether a certification led to a raise, a promotion, a new job, or something else. 60.5% of professionals said their certifications got them a new job, 56.0% said that they got raise, 28.8% said that they got a promotion within their current company, and 10.8% said that they got some other type of reward for their certifications. However, there is a catch to all of these numbers, because they don’t take into account professionals that don’t have any certifications, and also doesn’t make an effort to account for the fact that not all certifications are equal. Some certifications have been clearly shown to be more beneficial than others, such as the Cisco family of certifications and some Microsoft ones.

Poor Info on Career Opportunities Is Costing Students Jobs

Nearly half of young people in the U.K. are missing out on career opportunities due to a lack of information from schools and universities, despite having the skills employers want, according to a new CompTIA survey. The new research reveals that 41 percent of students do not feel well-informed about the range of careers open to them. Only 13 percent feel their education institutions have fully equipped them to make career decisions. CompTIA surveyed more than 1,000 students to understand what motivates them. The survey is part of a drive to address the huge skills gap in IT and technology careers in the U.K.

Cybersecurity Legislation Predictably Unpredictable on Capitol Hill

The 2012 U.S. federal legislative session started off looking very promising for the passage of cybersecurity reform — then suddenly the landscape shifted. On privacy and intellectual property issues, we saw the Internet companies flex lobbying muscle in an unprecedented way. And, even though 2011 saw more major data breach incidents than previous years, data breach reform may be a long way off.
