This accelerated VMware vSphere: Fast Track [V6.7] course takes you from introductory to advanced VMware vSphere® management skills in just 5 days. You'll get your own dedicated server with 24-hour lab access and official course material - including hands-on lab training.

This course prepares you to administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organisation of any size using vSphere 6.7, which includes VMware ESXi™ 6.7 and VMware vCenter Server® 6.7.

Using Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, you'll develop the advanced skills you need to manage and maintain a highly available and truly scalable virtual infrastructure.

On this course you'll learn how to Install, configure and manage vSphere 6.7. You will explore the features that build a foundation for a truly scalable infrastructure and discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect.

You'll also learn how to:

  • Install and configure ESXi hosts
  • Deploy, configure and manage VMware vCenter® Server
  • Create virtual networks with vSphere standard switches
  • Describe, configure, create and manage storage technologies supported by vSphere
  • Create virtual machines, templates, clones, snapshots and a content library
  • Migrate and encrypt virtual machines, protect and recover virtual machine data
  • Create virtual networks and enable distributed switch features
  • Apply patches and perform upgrades to ESXi hosts and virtual machines

If you're a system administrator or system engineer looking to master vSphere infrastructure, this course is ideal for you.

Residential or Online vSphere 6.7 course

Firebrand offers both a classroom-based and vSphere 6.7 online course, including everything you need to get certified in record time:

  • Official courseware, labs and practice exams
  • vSphere 6.7 certification exam
  • Accommodation, meals and snacks (for residential courses)

In this day and age, you get to choose the best one for your needs, and get your certification faster than anywhere else.

On this accelerated course, you'll be prepared for and sit the vSphere 6.7 Foundations Exam 2019 and Professional vSphere 6.7 Exam 2019 to gain your VMware Certified Professional - Data Center Virtualization 2019 (VCP-DCV 2020) certification. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee: pass first time or train again free.

This VMware training is delivered in cooperation with HPE Education Services, a global VMware Authorised Training Center (VATC).

Seven reasons why you should sit your VCP-DCV 2019 course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be VCP-DCV 2019 certified in just 5 days. With us, you’ll be VCP-DCV 2019 trained in record time
  2. Our VCP-DCV 2019 course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass VCP-DCV 2019 first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more VCP-DCV 2019. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn VCP-DCV 2019 faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying VCP-DCV 2019 with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 75,956 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study VCP-DCV 2019 courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging


You, and every other student, will be assigned your own dedicated server with 24-hour access during the course. You'll perform all labs on exactly the same hardware you find in a real data centre. This means you can 'get your hands dirty', by revisiting labs and working at your own pace, without time constraints or distractions.

You'll benefit from official e-courseware to fulfill VMware's official eligibility requirements to become accredited.

Sit both exams during the course and return to the office certified. Or defer your exams and take exam vouchers instead.

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
