The Broadcom VMware Acquisition: Key Updates and Insights

April 29, 2024
Global Knowledge

Since the Broadcom acquisition of VMware, announced in November 2023, the company has undergone many content and subscription changes. Both on-demand courses and tokens have been discontinued, and they have streamlined their VMware Instructor-led Training (ILT) offerings, resulting in some titles reaching their end-of-life status. Additionally, the VMware Portfolio of courses has been split into different business units, however Broadcom Education Delivery Partners are now able to offer and deliver the full suite of courses that sit under the VCF business unit ( vSphere, Multi-cloud, Kubernetes and Tanzu, vSAN and SRM, NSX and NSX-T, vRealize/Aria) and the EUC business unit (Horizon, Workspace ONE, End-User Computing, App Volumes and Dynamic Environment Manager).

We understand these changes can be confusing for our customers and students. At Skillsoft Global Knowledge, we still provide a full range of VMware ILT courses and certifications including recently updated products, including:

  • Data Center Virtualization: VMware Data Center Virtualization certifications affirm your expertise in managing VMware vSphere solutions, including virtual machines, networking, and storage, and assess your skill level in designing, installing, and managing VMware vSphere environments in a real-world environment.
  • Cloud Management and Automation: VMware Cloud Management and Automation certifications gauge your competency in installing, configuring, and optimizing VMware Aria, formerly VMware vRealize, for your cloud solutions.
  • Security (SEC): VMware Security certifications validate your understanding of VMware’s security solutions and ability to provide entry-level support for the security features of VMware products, including NSX-T Data Center, Workspace ONE, and VMware Carbon Black Cloud.
  • Network Virtualization (NV): VMware Network Virtualization certifications evaluate your proficiency in designing, implementing, and managing VMware NSX environments.
  • End-User Computing (EUC): VMware End-User Computing certifications measure your skills in designing, installing, and managing Digital Workspace solutions using VMware Workspace ONE and Desktop Management solutions using VMware Horizon.
  • Application Modernization (AM): VMware Application Modernization certifications verify your knowledge, validated by passing specialist exams. These certifications enable you to build an effective team with proven skills, ranging from developer expertise in specialized frameworks to administrator insights into emerging technologies like Kubernetes and containers.


VMware E-Learning Subscription

Along with the changing course and certification offerings, VMware plans to retire its existing VMware Enterprise Learning Subscription plans, with the three multi-length plans scheduled to reach their end-of-life status on May 6th, 2024. New VMware subscriptions are scheduled to become available. Stay tuned for updates on these subscriptions and the VMware acquisition on the Skillsoft Global Knowledge website.
