Education


Usually the acquaintance with technologies begins with Training. There are several options: Authorized training programs from VMware, alternative non-authorized (author’s) programs from independent producers of educational content, and self-study with a textbook.

Authorized training

The main components of authorized training are branded textbooks, access to the laboratory environment during training, certified instructors. The training programs themselves are focused on official international certification and are based on new versions of products and technologies, reflect the latest advances in virtualization and cloud technologies in VMware. The content of the Authorized trainings of the last generation have a practice-oriented nature and form the professional competencies of the specialist. VMware provides an equally high level of education, regardless of the location of the training center, controls the content of courses, provides educational and methodological and technical support. There is a system and regulations for training and certification of instructors. An independent certification system allows course participants to obtain internationally recognized documents. Different forms of training allow students to choose the most convenient training option.

Practice


During the authorized study, students have access to the laboratory environment in which they perform tasks according to the course scenario. This is enough to gain basic technology skills. However, after the end of the course, this access is terminated, and to consolidate skills, such a laboratory must be constantly available, and training in a productive environment is a very bad idea.

There are several main options: to create a permanent laboratory or even a home one mini data center, or take advantage of a special resource from VMware – Hands-on Labs.
