Hello! Stanly Community College wanted to make everyone aware of changes coming to the VMware IT Academy program in the next 5 months. VMware has informed academies worldwide that they will no longer be able to offer classes through Continuing Education programs as of July 31, 2018. Additionally, VMware is not going to allow academies to teach the official Install, Configure and Manage or Optimize and Scale classes as of 31 July 2018. A new VCA level course that will fulfill the class requirement for VCP certification will be available via an option in our curriculum program. More details will be available later this year.
However, this decision by VMware means that your costs for our classes will go from $185.00 USD to the following after 31 July 2018:
In-State Students: $342.25 USD
Out-of-State Students: $918.25 USD
SCC will have two more sessions of Install, Configure and Manage and Optimize and Scale through our Continuing Education program at our current pricing structure. If you or anyone you know wants VMware training from SCC, these classes should be taken as soon as possible. The next session begins in March and the final session will begin in May. To sign up for the class waitlist, go to https://www.stanly.edu/it-academy
and click on the "VMware IT Academy" logo. You then need to click on "Enroll Now" and place your name on the waitlist. SCC will try to accommodate as many students as we can, but we cannot guarantee placement in either session. To be fair, we enroll students in the order they sign up on the waitlist.
SCC is committed to providing students with affordable, accessible and excellent IT training. We regret that the changes VMware is making to the program increase student costs and limit course availability. If you use VMware products in your environment and are not happy with the changes VMware has made to the VMware IT Academy program, we suggest you speak with your Dell/EMC/VMware representative(s) regarding your dissatisfaction with the changes.
