I just passed my VCP4 exam! and I wanted to know if I need to also take the class for VCP5?  I'm planning on taking the class in the summer of this year, but I believe I can pass the test before.

Yes you can but you wont get the accrediation to VCP 5. If youd have done this before FEB 29th, there was no requiremeny to sit the course.

You need to take two days what's new class room training for VCP 5 , if you are VCP 4 Certified. It is not valid if you pass the test without class ID.

I think you've just missed the deadline, in February 29th, so you will now need to take a new Course.

You can still do the Exam and pass, you will just not get awarded a VCP5 until you complete the course.

If you've had a v4 VCP class in the past and pass the VCP4 exam, you are currently a VCP4 and you can take the VCP5 test and not have to take a VCP5 class. That was an offer VMware had going on that lasted until 29 Feb. If you're wondering if you can just take the test, sure. You can take the VCP5 test whenever you want, but you won't get your official certification for VCP version 5 without taking the class because that is a requirement to get your VCP5.
