To help instructors prepare to teach vITA (VMware IT Academy) Program classes, VMware provides selected instructors free access to the "On Demand" vSphere:ICM (Install, Configure, Manage) class.
VMware OD (On Demand) classes provide a robust, self-paced learning solution delivering modular training combined with hands-on practice labs, giving you a powerful alternative to traditional classroom training. For more details about the VMware OD course format, Google “VMware On Demand course”, or see -- http://www.vmware.com/go/ODC
Normally, VMware charges around $4000.00 US to attend the OD vSphere:ICM class, but each month VMware allocates a limited number of free OD classes for instructor preparation to academic organizations enrolled in the vITA Program. VMware refuses requests for any other purpose.
