Hi Experts,
I am planing to take exam to demonstrate my professionalism in VMware vsphere, there is no way that i can attend the perquisite training, i have gone through all these including VI 3x in my own way and well comfortable.

I would like to write to VMWare asking for exemption to allow me to write the exam without the training, any sample or model letter would really make my goal - any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    There is no way this is possible.  If you wrote letter and got exemption, then precedent would be set and none of us wouldhave to take the training course prior to VCP certification.

    Until VMWare changes this polic, you will have to ante up for the 5 day training via a virtual or physical class.

    Not possible. Its a compulsary requirement & definitely no exemption.

    Not allowed and possible.
    There is no way that VMware knows what your skill levels really are. To be frank, we know that all the VMWare Exam questions can be bought of the internet sites by organizations 'purporting' to help you pass the exam. So many people use this an to pass their exams and claim to be certified ... If I had a dime for every 'certified' MCSE's that  I've met  that didn't have a clue as to what a hidden share was, I could be rich today.
    Attending the course is at least VMware's way of ensuring that a person at least got a brief overview of the Exam.
    The day, VMware and all other IT certification exams actually test you by forcing you to provide a complete solution using the product tool sets (where the answer can't be found off the Internet) is the day you could write the exam without attending the course. That's what the VCDX and CCIE programs are all about. Once you have one of those certifications, there is no doubt in the minds of others that you actually know what the hell you talking about.

    My limitation is the time, the only option available for me is to follow a online course for 8 days 4 hours per day but again my timing is not fitting the schedule.

    Thank you all .
