Why get certified?

VMware is one of the leading vendors for virtualisation technology solutions. VMware certification sets the standard for IT professionals and validates the critical skills organisations need to implement and manage this technology to achieve the desired business outcomes.

Companies benefit from certified employees because they work more efficiently, reduce IT system downtimes to a minimum, and thus lower external support costs and shorten response times. Certifications validate your VMware knowledge, skills, and expertise to your peers, your manager, and the industry.

Please see below some of the key certifications for VMware as well as corresponding training options:
