Yesterday I started a series of blogs about the new VMware VCP5-IAAS certification. To get you started I wanted to provide you the resources needed and create a quick download page for all VMware PDF’s mentioned in the blueprint.

In my first post, you can find a couple of blogs that are a great resouces for this study as well as the link to the training page for the vCloud Install and Configure training, so if you need those click here

I do want to share another resource with you of which I heard it is a a good training to get you started. I can’t tell by own experience, but from what I’ve seen from some other training material done by Trainsignal (and David Davis in special) on VMware topics, this must be great. And as said judging some of my twitter and facebook friends it is a great training. So I just wanted to point you to the Trainsignal vCloud Director Essential training.



The exam blueprint provided by the VMware education services is devided in 5 sections which on their turn are devided into sub sections. The 5 sections are:

  • Setion 1: The exam
  • Section 2: Intended Audiance
  • Section 3: Objectives covered in the VCPVCD510 Exam
  • Section 4: VCP-IaaS Paths and Course Requirement Options
  • Section 5: Additional Resources

Section 1, 2, 4 and 5 are informative sections which you should read. Make sure you know the information included in these sections before taking the exam.

Within section 3 you will find all Sections and objectives needed to be able to nail the VCP5-IaaS certificate. I’ll cover these in later posts, but when looking through the blueprint I noticed a lot of guides are named a couple of times thoughout the blueprint. I thought it would be great to have a source where all these guides are named once so you can download them all from 1 place. So here are the direct links to the guides:
