VCP6-DTM: VMware Certified Professional 6 — Desktop and Mobility

Best Mobility Certifications 2018
By

VMware tackles mobility with virtual desktop infrastructures and a host of technologies that enable administrators to support mobile users using virtualization tools and platforms.

The VMware Certified Professional 6 – Desktop and Mobility (VCP6-DTM) certification identifies individuals who can deploy and configure Horizon with View in a vSphere virtualized data center, as well as use View and other technologies to implement and manage virtual desktops and applications.

To earn the VCP6-DTM you need to follow one of these four paths:

  • Path 1 (for current VCP6-DT credential holders): Candidates who already possess a valid VCP6-DT (desktop) certification are automatically granted the VCP6-DTM certification.
  • Path 2 (for current VCP credential holders): Candidates who already possess a valid VCP credential need only pass the requisite exam. Training is still recommended but not required.
  • Path 3 (for expired VCP credential holders): Candidates who hold expired VCP certifications must take a training course, pass the vSphere 6 or 6.5 Foundations exam, and pass the VCP6-DTM exam.
  • Path 4 (for non-VCP credential holders): Candidates who are just starting with VCP6-DTM must have six months of experience with vSphere 6 and Horizon, take a training course, pass the vSphere 6 or 6.5 Foundations exam, and pass the VCP6-DTM exam.

VMware certifications expire after two years. To maintain their certifications, credential holders must pass the current exam VCP6-DTM exam or a higher-level exam, such as for the advanced-level VCAP6-Design or VCAP6-Deploy certification.
