Overview

This course introduces the technologies and components that constitute VCE Converged and Hyper-Converged systems. It provides a basic understanding of what these technologies are and how they are engineered into VCE Converged and HyperConverged Systems.

 

The training consists of nine sections and each contains an assessment. To acquire the VCE Certified Professional Associate credential you must take and pass each of these nine assessments. You have a choice regarding how to complete the training and assessments. At the start of each section, you can choose to complete the training before attempting the assessment. Or, if you are confident in your knowledge of the topic, you can by-pass the training and go directly to the assessment.

 

Completion of the training portions of this course is not required. However, to achieve the VCE Certified Professional Associate credential you must pass each of the nine assessments with a minimum score of 80 percent (80%).
