London, EnglandLearning NewsFirebrand Training

Firebrand launches its official offering of VMware vSphere in partnership with HP. The five day fast track course will be offered throughout Firebrand's European and Middle East training centres.


Firebrand Training is delighted to announce we now offer the official VMware ® vSphere 5.5 Fast Track (VCP) course. In partnership with HP, Firebrand is able to offer the course through its training centres situated across Europe and the Middle East.

Attaining the VMware vSphere certification through the traditional pathways can be a slow process. First, you must attend the five-day VMware Install, Configure, Manage course before attending the five-day Optimize and Scale course. After which you will still need to add an extra day to attempt the VCP exam.

Now delegates can cut those eleven days to five on the VMware ® vSphere 5.5 Fast Track (VCP) course. In partnership with HP, Firebrand has combined VMware Install, Configure, Manage with the advanced elements of Optimize and Scale. Delegates will also sit the official VMware VCP exam which is covered by the Firebrand Certification Guarantee.

Firebrand packs in more training time than the Install, Configure, Manage course during the vSphere5.5 Fast Track. Over the same time period delegates will get:

  • 12 more hands-on labs
  • 11 extra modules
  • Up to 20 hours more learning time

They also get more time to study vSphere5.5 features on the Firebrand course – spending up to 12 hours in class with an instructor each day.

During the course they will get 24-hour access to their own dedicated server and master advanced virtualisation features like high availability and scalability.

Get an official certification from VMware, a company that accounts for 58% of the virtualisation market. 63% of IT professionals are responsible for managing virtualisation; Stand out from the crowd with an official vSphere5.5 cert.
