VCAP Training Institute

VCAP

A VMware Certified Professional (VCP) affirmation is required before endeavoring VCAP confirmation. VMware as of now offers three VCAP tracks: server farm virtualization, end client processing and cloud. Each track has two affirmations: propelled chairman and propelled architect. There are discrete exams for each track and separate exams for every accreditation choice.
