VMware vSphere Professional Camp [v6.0] 5 Day Accelerated Training Camp
download full PDF course overview

The VMware vSphere Professional Camp is our most popular course where students can get their hands dirty mastering VMware vSphere 6.0 inside our state-of-the-art data center. This course combines best practices and covers content from 6 of VMware’s most popular course titles into one powerful accelerated training camp.

Training Umbrellas ’s experts also supplement detailed courseware and lab time with lectures to give students a 360􀂃
tour of the products capabilities and limitations, providing tips on what and what not to do with VMware vSphere. There is a big difference between what happens in the classroom and what happens in the real world. Customized training solves this problem. Students will learn throughout the course how to identify issues, troubleshoot and resolve real world management problems. This is the most comprehensive look at VMware vSphere 6.0 and is designed for students looking to
immediately apply their new skills in a production environment.

Who should take this course? 
  • 􀂇New and experienced system administrators, system engineers, and system integrators with 1-3 years experience working in an administator role seeking superior vSphere skills with minimal time away from the office.
Why Real World Training?
6 VMware Classes - 1 Camp!

􀂇Optimize & Scale
􀂇Skills For Operators

􀂇What’s New!
􀂇Third Party Tools
Tailored Training Solutions
Customizable Training
More Hands-on Labs!

Taking a “one-size-fits-all” approach to training is not always the right way to go. Instead, being able to work with our team
to customize training to the specific VMware license features makes for a much richer delivery and relevant training experience.

Unlike typical VMware training with 20 or so labs, customized training provides over 70+ hands-on labs with step-by-step
instructions showing how vSphere is applied in a real world production enviroment.

Course Overview

Turn good Administrators into Great Ones! This is the kind of training students hope for, but rarely get with off-the-shelf training. The ability to understand and know when to apply the tools of virtualization cannot be understated in the real world. Just ask any virtualization administrator and they will tell you Virtual Computing, Networking and Storage are complex technical concepts. Knowing when to use features of VMware
products or look to alternative solutions or applications are invaluable skills to possess.

Why Take This Course?
  • VMware vSphere Professional Camp [v6.0]
  • License Specific Training
Today VMware vSphere comes in 5 flavors.

• Essentials
• Essentials Plus
• Standard
• Enterprise
• Enterprise Plus

One of the biggest differences between off-the-shelf training and a Professional Camp is the ability to align content to match the VMware licensed product inside the vSphere suite. Using our Moodle® modular consultative approach to learning, this course can be modified to address only the pertinent information being utilized inside the IT department, and leave all the fluff out so students can focus on the real world tasks
needed to master the company’s existing environment. 

Exceeding expectations is a common occurrence around Training Umbrella’s custom training solutions. There is a lot to be said about well-planned training events. Work with our course development team to align course objectives to organizational needs and deliver a superior training experience.

Customizable Training

Because this is a vendor neutral course, we are able to cover additional third party content not found in a vendor specific training class. Integration of third party tools can simplify task, bring potentially greater flexibility and efficiency, and streamline processes inside the virtual environment. This course will broaden the administrators perspective, exposing them to conditions they will encounter daily in their jobs and enhance their ability to mitigate issues and maximize the return on a company’s investment in VMware.
