The Virtualization Essentials Course™ is a 2-day, interactive, classroom-based learning experience. The course provides a balanced curriculum and addresses the business perspective, the technical organization, and operating and governing virtualization. The course enables participants to successfully complete the associated Virtualization Essentials exam to become a Virtualization Essentials Professional (VEP) with the Cloud Credential Council. In addition, this course complements the Cloud Essentials course. The participants can do the Cloud Essentials course either before or after they have taken the Virtualization Essentials course.
Scenario-driven learning has always been one of the key success factors of XA Data Internationals courses, because it puts participants in the right mind-set to apply the principles in a realistic setting. The role-play activities included in this course present a real world connection by using situations that can occur in the day-to-day life of the participants. In addition, interactive elements such as brainstorms, quizzes, and discussions add to the interactive nature of this course.
