The VMware Certified Professional Camp is a 9 day training and certification program designed to help IT administrators learn and certify on VMware’s vSphere platform. This instructor lead program will teach the skills needed to support a vSphere environment as well as prepare students for the challenging VCP6 exams. This camp incorporates VMware’s authorized Install, Configure, Manage (VICM) course (required to sit the VCP exams) into an intensive hands-on-lab environment, combined extensive testing that follows the VCP6-DCV exam blueprint to prepare students for the exam. Students will also take quizzes and practice exams culminating in students taking the VCP6 exams at the conclusion of the course. Students will be provided hands-on labs to help learn critical concepts needed in real world production environments, and receive one-on-one mentoring from expert instructors.
While attending this training, you will take 2 exams and certify for the VMware Certified Professional -Data Center Virtualization (VCP6). If your goal is to learn VMware’s vSphere product AND pass the certification exams (2VO-620 & 2VO-621) – you’ve found the right place. This course is a hybrid of actual hands-on learning combined with focused materials mapped to the exam objectives.

Prepare for VCP Certification with extensive test preparation
The VMware Certified Professional –Data Center Virtualization is 1 of 4 certifications available from VMware on their vSphere product. The VCP-DCV is the industry recognized standard for VMware infrastructure administrators to possess. While attending our VMware Certified Professional Training with Certification Camps, you will take the current version of the VCP-DCV Exam.
Candidates should have a minimum of 1-3 years’ experience working in a datacenter in an administrative/operator capacity where they provision, test, and deploy servers to a production environment, have already had some exposure to VMware vSphere, and possess a working knowledge of virtualization concepts and terms.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS FACILITIES
CAMPUS - Certification Camps invested $150,000 into a complete training center construction build out. Larger classrooms, no sound transference between training rooms, new desk / executive leather chairs & great common areas.
CLASSROOM SERVERS - Students work on a dedicated Dell 8500 / 8700 with an Intel i7 (4th generation), minimum of 16GB memory (Most with 32 GB) and most with 512GB SSD drives.
CAMPUS INTERNET - The campus is connected with a 300Mbs Verizon Fios Business Connection which provides complete internet (including VPN) access for students.
COMMON AREA - Unlike any training facility ever - break room with Mame Arcade, high end "kitchen" with snacks, drinks (Starbucks Coffee, 100% juices, sodas, etc) and breathtaking terrace.
NEAR BY AMENITIES - Many shops, restaurants and grocery options are available within walking distance. Additionally - the hotel provided scheduled shuttle services. Restaurants like Bone Fish Grill, Ruby Tuesday's, Five Guys, Chipotle, Quiznos, Chili's and over 20 additional choices in the immediate area. All of these options are offered in a pedestrian walking village.
CERTIFICATION CAMPS DIFFERENCE
Certification Camps provides an in-depth hands on learning environment. Our instructors teach using demonstrations and explain concepts beyond the scope of the courseware. The best instructors are contracted from all across the US. These professionals are real world consultants who actually implement these technologies. Certification Camps knows our clients work in the "real world" and it only makes sense to have an instructor with the experience in the real world.
Facilities - Many of our competitors over-crowd classrooms by placing 2 to 3 students per desk and 20+ students per instructor. Often these companies "extend" the life of very old equipment with slow performance on the software used today. Our average class size is 8 students. Our facilities have the best equipment with the most comfortable, focused environment for learning.
Instructors - Our CEO, Chester Flake holds one of the rarest Microsoft Certifications - the Microsoft Certified Learning Consultant (MCLC) Certification. This certification reflects a commitment to make sure our instructors are also actively engaged in real world consulting projects. Students expect a professional who can answer questions and demonstrate the technology.
Face to Face Training - We believe the best way to interact and learn is face to face training. Many of our competitors which offer local training are simply providing students with headphones/mic to attend class with an instructor at a remote location.
Test Pass Guarantees - We offer a free retake voucher (if needed) for each of the exams required for certification. Any training center offering a "100% pass guarantee" would have to use unethical practices or unlimited test vouchers (which is not likely or practical).
Distractions - Students often look for a "local" training center so they can be close to home and work. Boot camp requires a tremendous time commitment during the program. Long class hours combined with self study each evening. The goal of boot camp is to achieve certification in a fraction of the time. We strongly recommend students attend camp away from home and work in a focused, distraction free environment.
Boot Camps - Boot camp is an accelerated training focused on teaching technology and testing students on the official exams. Most training providers "added" boot camps to the existing standard training classes they offer. These training centers think a boot camp is just a regular class where you send the student home with a voucher on the last day. Certification Camps administers exams throughout the camp. Equally important - not every trainer can teach a boot camp and not all courseware is designed for boot camp format. Our trainers know the boot camp format and our courseware is designed for accelerated learning.
Florida - Certification Camps has one of the most scenic locations boasting some of the best weather in US. We believe students should have a comfortable and inviting atmosphere while attending these otherwise intense programs. We place our location, facilities and amenities up against that any competitor.
