VCAP Exam Experience

Last Friday I took the VDCA550 exam after agreeing I would study for it with a colleague (to be honest I was supposed to sit the exam in January…  but as I didn’t studying enough over the festive break I thought it best to give myself a few weeks solid study time and sit the exam in February).

The exam is a live lab environment, my exam had 23 questions which are marked after the exam is finished. This means that you do not get an immediate pass/fail summary at the end of the exam like the VCPs or Microsoft exams, but instead you’ll be checking your email every few minutes until the score report is sent to you from VMware.

Hugely honoured to be selected as one of 2016’s vExperts!

Big thank you to all the people who have helped and encouraged me, especially my gorgeous fiancé Aileen Stewart putting up with me working on my lab or writing blog posts (and occasionally coming home late after one too many vBeers!)

It really is a huge honour to be recognised and great that I get to work with a technology that excites me every day!

Thank you so much!
