Official VMware training

This course prepares for the VCP-DCV “VMware Certified Professional DataCenter Virtualization” certification. Certification is not included in the price of the training. For “Distance” training, they are carried out with a Teams or Zoom type videoconferencing tool depending on the case, allowing the trainer to adapt his teaching. our website for all the details on remote sessions or virtual classes.
