If you work in the IT industry whether as a System Administrator, System Engineer or Consultant, you must have heard of TrainSignal. The company was founded in 2002 and provides online training material for IT professionals on Microsoft, VMware, Cisco, Citrix etc. I personally used TrainSignal material in the past to prepare for my MCSE exam and I really liked it. The materials were quite extensive and the instructors really know their stuff. This year I won the VMware vExpert award and TrainSignal was kind enough to grant unlimited access to their materials for all vExpert awardees. So let me take this opportunity and thank TrainSignal for this! 🙂
Recently, I started to study for my VCAP5-DCA exam and found good courses on the TrainSignal website. One of them is the VMware vSphere Optimize and Scale course led by Jason Nash. It’s a 27 part online training course which covers almost every objective mentioned in the official VMware exam blueprint. The course covers topics like storage, capacity management, virtual networking including vSphere Distributed Switch, performance tuning, HA/DRS configuration, host profiles, update manager, all-round vSphere troubleshooting, security and many more. TrainSignal also provides practice exams to test your knowledge and prepare for the real exam. It’s an awesome supplement to the training! I strongly recommend this course if you are planning to take your VCAP5-DCA exam soon.
If you are interested in the course material provided by TrainSignal, head over to their website, sign up and you can use all materials for free for 3 days! Also, if you decide to subscribe to TrainSignal, they have a great referral program where you can earn 1 month of free training for each friend that joins.
