Steps to Planning for the Next vSphere Course

  • Set your career goal in the VMware vSphere arena – Deciding on your goals will help you set a milestone for yourself based on which you can choose the path moving ahead.

  • Research which vSphere courses will help achieve your set goals – Once your goals are decided you can now focus on which vSphere courses will help you achieve the skills required for that opportunity. For instance, if you possess a VCAP certification and you see an opportunity in your organization that requires an VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) certification, you will have focus on taking it up next.
  • Talk to your employer – Talking to your employer will help him/ her know that you’re willing to undertake the extra effort to add to your skills and help the organization. There’s huge demand for skilled IT professionals and organizations are willing to pay for candidates who want to expand their skill sets and serve an organization.
  • Choose an appropriate training style – Whether you learn better on your own plans or via online classrooms or through physical classrooms, having something in mind will help you plan your year ahead and also arrange for the finances accordingly.

Note: Be it vSphere 5.1 training or VCP 5.5 training, choosing appropriate VMware virtual training courses to prepare for your exam is also very important. If you opt for these training courses, you will have to plan your year accordingly.

Over and above that, make your choices wisely and plan your moves with thought. Good luck!
