VMware certified Associate - Digital Business Transformation

As a VMware VCI, I need to maintain my certifications and this has led to me holding a number of certifications with both VMware and Microsoft.

Within VMware, I hold all of the current VMware Certified Associate certifications, but one, and that is the newly released:

VMware Certified Associate – Digital Business Transformation (VCA-DBT)

Here’s the description.

Earning this certification validates your understanding of virtualization concepts and how they drive an enterprise’s digital agenda. It proves that you are familiar with the VMware products and technologies that support VMware Cloud Foundation and Cross-Cloud Architecture solutions including vSphere, vSAN, NSX, and the vRealize Suite.

That looks like a lot of information to take in, and don’t get me wrong it is.

The question therefore, is “How would I prepare for this certification?”

The answer, is “How do you fancy 60 days free access to VMware Learning zone?”

If your answer is yes then visit the VMware Learning Zone (Trial Subscription) site

Once signed up read the exam study guide

Login to your VMware Learning Zone subscription and concentrate on the VCA-DBT Training Modules.

Remember that your Learning Zone trial is for 60 days, so use that time to properly prepare, once you’re 100% happy, register for and then pass exam 1V0-701 (provided by Pearson VUE).

The exam is 135 minutes long and is non-proctored, so you can do it from the comfort of your own home, there’s 50 questions, all multiple choice, drag and drop, and matching. The passing score is 300 out of a possible 500

I feel that this certification for anyone who loves acronyms and letters after their name, is an ideal entry in to VMware products, after gaining this certification, why not look into gaining your VCP certification.

Good luck with your endeavours.
