VMware certification exams – 50% discounts (2013 offer)

defy-conventionIf you’re in the market to take a VMware certification exam, there’s some good news – provided you’re quick. For the next couple of days (while VMworld Barcelona is running, Oct 14th-17th 2013) you can book the VCP and VCAP exams at a cool 50% offeven if you’re not at the conference! For VCP that’s a saving of approx £50 and more like £200 for the VCAP exams! If you want to blitz some of the new certification tracks recently announced you’re not limited to just one – study your little legs off and you could save even more by taking multiple exams….

The codes you need to register with are;

  • VWBAR50 – for the VCP exams (VCP-DV, VCP-DT,VCP-Cloud,VMware IaaS, VMware View)

UPDATE 15th Oct: There is also a code for the new VCA exams (completely free) which looks to be good until the end of the month (October 2013).
CORRECTION 15th Oct: I incorrectly stated the VCAP code as VMADVBAR50, which has now been corrected (as above).


  • You MUST book the exam while VMworld Barcelona is running. You don’t have to be attending the conference, it’s just the period of time the offer is valid.
  • You MUST take the exam by the end of the year.

What are you waiting for? Head over to VMware Certification and get registered certification junkies!

      What error did you get, if any? I’ve not tried booking one myself yet but if the codes aren’t recognised I can always try speaking to someone at the certification lounge.

      OK, I’ll have a chat with the certification guys over here and see what I can find out. Thanks for letting me know.

    Hi Ed,

    Thanks for sharing these code but there is a problem with the vcap exam code VMADVBAR50, it’s not the right code, must be VWADVBAR50 in order to schedule correctly.

    Already scheduled my vcap-dcd exam with it

    Thanks again !!!

    Folks: Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that it may take 1 day to receive permission from Pearson/VUE to request the exam. That means that you need to register with VMware and request the exam from VUE well before the end of VMworld or you run the risk of running out of time due to ‘bureaucratic latency’. Good luck everyone…

    Coupon worked for me – thank you. Got the VCAP-DCA exam for $200 USD instead of $400. Now all I have to do is pass it!

    BTW, had major issues getting Pearson VUE to allow me to buy the exam. Turns out you need a new user name/password for each cert exam (their rep told me this). Took about 30 minutes of online support to figure out the problem, generate a new user name for me and finally pay for the exam. Before this, I was getting misleading error messages from Pearson VUE stating that I didn’t have authorization for the exam. All in all, a *very* confusing registration process.

    Hi ED,

    Do we still have any discount running on VCAP-DCA ?

      Assuming the above codes don’t work anymore I’m not aware of any others unfortunately. If anyone knows any please post them here in the comments.
