    VCA-DCV is redundant now.

    There is now just a single VCA, VCA-DBT: https://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/plan.cfm?plan=103217&ui=www_cert

    Take a class with a VMware IT Academy while you still can. Changes are coming down the pipe this year from VMware.

    @STANLY_CC, @SCOTT28TT how about the foundations exam? should i go to it? or should i go directly to VCA-DBT

    Foundations exam is prerequisite for 3 VCP certification: VCP-DCV, VCP-NV and VCP-CMA.
    VCA-DBT is a standalone certification without prerequisites.

    Almost, there’s also the DTM VCP - vSphere Foundations is part of it too.

    On it’s own, passing the vSphere Foundations exam gives you nothing.You would also need to pass a VCP exam, and take an authorised training class, in order to achieve a certification.
