Why study this course

This course provides hands-on training to equip students with a range of skills, from performing routine VMware vSphere® 7 administrative tasks to complex vSphere operations and configurations.

Through lab-based activities, students are immersed in real-life situations faced by VMBeans, a fictitious company. These situations expose students to real-life scenarios faced by companies that are building and scaling their virtual infrastructure.

Approximately 90% of the class is application-focused and taught through labs. The course aligns fully with the VMware Certified Advanced Professional - Data Center Virtualisation Deploy exam objectives.
