VMware Certified Associate

VMware Certified Associate (VCA) is an entry-level certification for VMware's cloud and virtualization products. 

VMware Certified Associate exams do not cover technical skills, but instead requires candidates to demonstrate an understanding of basic virtualization technology and how to apply that knowledge to VMware products. There are four separate versions of the certification: Cloud, data center virtualization, end-user computing and network virtualization.

The VMware Certified Associate exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions that must be completed within 75 minutes. Unlike some of its other certifications, such as the VMware Certified Professional, VMware does not require candidates to participate in a training course before taking the VCA exam. However, the company does offer a free e-learning training course to help candidates prepare for the exam.
