Last year I wrote a brief introduction into the VMware starter and professional certifications.
VMware have now upgraded the certification titles with the new 2020 designations.
If you're new to the certification trail, any exams you now sit will lead towards the new certification, VMware are currently working on their upgrade paths, and I'll post information as I find it.
If you are a VCP-x2019 VMware have said that their system has logic to realise you're a VCP-x and that the 2019 designation will lead to VCAP-x2020s
The new certification designations 2020 for the starter courses and the VCP are as follows.
