- Course Outline
This 5-day intensive (10hr/day) VMware® vSphere 4.0Ultimate Bootcamp® is taught by top virtualization experts and offers hands-on labs designed to expose the student to advanced virtualization concepts and the VMware® vSphere 4.0 product suite. This comprehensive class prepares the student to become a certified professional virtualization expert with the Certified Virtualization Expert 4.0® (CVE 4.0®) certification to attest to their knowledge of the material and technology.
Learn More About the Ultimate Boot Camp... Ultimate Bootcamps® give the student in-depth skills training through hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment. The focus of the CVE 4.0® training is to instill the knowledge required for the student to do their job efficiently and effectively first. To accomplish this, the Bootcamp provides a comprehensive, A-Z training experience, starting from the installation of the licensed product to real world troubleshooting scenarios. The course’s focus is not limited only to learning and harnessing the power of VMware®, but the entire concept of virtualization, 3rd party tools, and technologies that will enhance VMware® capabilities and increase the student’s virtualization expertise.
Work on VMware® HCL Hardware & Perform Real World Labs Each student is assigned their own dedicated Dell Poweredge server with 24 hour access during the Bootcamp week. Students will perform all labs on hardware you find in a real data centers and not PC’s like you find in other VMware Training courses. Having 24/7 unlimited access to a real world data center means the student can leverage the learning experience by revisiting labs where other courses have limited hours and access to servers. This
flexibility allows students to learn at their own pace without time constraints or distractions.
The Ultimate Bootcamp® has over 50 labs, the most of any training program available, leading to 65% of the class time spent learning by hands-on labs.
The time spent performing hands-on labs allows the student to develop the skills, knowledge, and techniques needed to implement vSphere 4 in your production environment.
Qualified Instructors Make A Difference The Ultimate Bootcamp® instructors are not just instructors. They are also consultants who have performed small, medium, and large consolidation projects, and who have real world experience using the virtualization technology and techniques that they teach. Bringing this experience into the
classroom gives the student a real training experience not found in other 9-5 training programs. Students are able to work on their own, bring their questions into the classroom, and ask the “What If” questions that they are working on in their own live environment.
Essential Third Party Tools Any job is easy when you have the right tools. In the Ultimate Bootcamp® the student will be introduced to and learn how to apply third party tools that when utilized in conjunction with VMware, will not only enhance students’ skills, but also simplify processes, optimize efficiency, and make their jobs that much easier.
Quality “Resourceware” and Follow-on Continuing Education With more than 750 pages and a 250 page lab book, this Ultimate Bootcamp® courseware is intuitively designed to help the student easily move through the chapters regardless of their level of
experience and will serve as a reference source even after the class.
This unique feature of all Ultimate Bootcamps® is what attracts so many students looking for a great training experience.
