Stanly Community College IT Academy update
We are an authorized VMware IT Academy, and the VMware courses we offer meet the education portion of the VM certification. However, we can offer the VMware course only to individuals and not as part of corporate training. Additionally, this course is designed for students who have not yet taken the VCA Foundations exam. Students who have already passed the exam would still have to retake the exam using the voucher given at the end of the course in order to receive credit for the required training course to obtain the VCP.
Stanly Community College’s VMware Academy is excited about recent changes to the VMware Academy. VMware recently reintroduced the Optimize and Scale class into the catalog of classes VMware Academies can teach. Due to this, Stanly Community College strongly recommends all students wishing to get VMware take the following courses and use their associated discount PSE vouchers.
- Install, Configure and Manage
a. Once successfully completed, this class provides students with a PSE voucher for the unproctored Foundations exam.
- Optimize and Scale
a. Once successfully completed, this class provides students with a PSE voucher for the proctored VCP exam.
While our students have many different levels of knowledge concerning VMware, SCC feels taking both of the above classes provides the level of knowledge students truly need to be good virtualization engineers. These courses are offered under the umbrella of Continuing Education, and they are conducted online, including labs, in an asynchronous manner which basically means it is available to students 24/7. Students can study at their own pace provided you meet the minimum due dates set by the instructor. The courses are 8 weeks in length, and the current tuition & lab fee costs for each course $185.00 USD. There is also a textbook in both hard copy and e-book formats available through our book store. We are currently teaching the 6.5 version of the VMware curriculum.
We enroll students in the VMware courses in the order in which they registered on our online wait list. If you have not added your information to this list please do so at http://itacademy.stanly.edu/waitlist.aspx. We apologize for any delay, but as you can imagine these classes are extremely popular. We make every effort to accommodate all students in a timely manner.
SCC has many students who live outside the U.S. However, at this time, due to evolving changes in higher education regulations, SCC is unable to serve all of the students that are interested in our courses or programs. SCC will no longer be able to offer distance education online programs or courses for students residing in Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Wyoming, and Puerto Rico.
