This VMware® vSphere 5.1 course prepares you to become a Certified Virtualization expert (CVE 5®). This bootcamp packs seven VMware® vSphere courses into one class. This means you'll save 67% in cost and 72% in time with our vSphere Ultimate Bootcamp.
Certified Virtualization Expert 5.1® (CVE5®) is a vendor-neutral certification offered by Firebrand Training. Here are a few facts about the course and the subject:
The exam that you will sit deals with much more than the VMware Certified Professional (VCP®) exam. CVE® encompasses critical virtualization technologies used today. You will be trained and tested on VMware, Microsoft and other Virtualization technologies, with a prime focus on VMware's ESX.
As a student of the Vsphere 5.1 Certified Virtualization Expert class, you will gain free access to the VM Training Lab Datacenter for up to one year after the class attendance. This is provided upon request only and is limited by availability. If they have a server available for you - it's yours!
Because we use VM Training courseware, we can cover a wider range of topics and value-added technologies:
The benefit of using third-party tools include:
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.
This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
In order to gain this CVE® certification, you will need to gain a score of 75% in the above exam. This is two hours in length, and consists of 80 questions covering critical virtualization technologies in use today.
Please note this is not the same as the VCP® (VMware Certified Professional) certification. You’ll learn enough on the course to sit the VCP exam. However, you’ll not gain the VCP certification, unless you sit a VMware direct course.
Firebrand offers a guaranteed certification. It's unlikely, but if you were to fail this exam the first time, you can re-train and re-sit the exam with us for free. You would only pay for accommodation.
To be successful on this course you must have some experience of system administration in a Microsoft Windows and/or Linux environment. You must also have at least 1 year of server and infrastructure experience.
You, and every other student, will be assigned your own dedicated server with 24-hour access during the course. You'll perform all labs on exactly the same hardware you find in a real data centre. This means you can 'get your hands dirty', by revisiting labs and working at your own pace, without time constraints or distractions.
Also, ask us about the one-year of free lab access available.
Firebrand Training offers top-quality technical education and certification training in an all-inclusive course package specifically designed for the needs and ease of our students. We attend to every detail so our students can focus solely on their studies and certification goals.
Our instructors teach to accommodate every student's learning needs through individualised instruction, hands-on labs, lab partner and group exercises, independent study, self-testing, and question/answer drills.
Firebrand Training has dedicated, well-equipped educational facilities where you will attend instruction and labs and have access to comfortable study and lounging rooms. Our students consistently say our facilities are second-to-none.
Should a student complete a Firebrand Training Program without having successfully passed all vendor examinations, the student may re-attend that program for a period of one year. Students will only be responsible for accommodations and vendor exam fees.
