On July 8th (yes, I know it took me this long to post about it) I accomplished something huge in my IT Career, I became a VMware Certified Professional 5 – Data Center Virtualization (VCP5-DCV). This is my 1st certification in almost 10yrs, man I hate tests!
This may not seem like much to some, but to me it is & it’s the beginning of a few stages I have planned out for my career path of excellence. Stage 1 complete! Rest, and enjoyment & no studying for a bit are in order…I can breathe again! Thank you to my wife and kids for putting up with daddy not participating in family stuff due to hitting the books and practice tests. I love you guys!!
The goal here is to shoot for a VCDX cert in my next few years. No guarantee I will attain that goal but my sights are set in that direction for sure. I am also going to start doing a podcast about certification items, tips, study guides, habits etc to help myself as well as others looking for this same path with VMware. Stay tuned for that in the coming weeks. I will also be updating the blog with posts about my home lab setup & more study info that I used or thought was helpful in my journey to get the VCP5-DCV.
