Welcome to the first ever ValCo Labs giveaway event! Since this is my contest/giveaway cherry, I don’t want to go too CRAZY because any subsequent contests/giveaways have the potential for being subpar, and nobody wants that!
How to Enter:

Here’s what you get:
- VMware vSphere 5 Training by David Davis and Elias Khnaser
- Trainsignals vSphere 5 training was an invaluable resource to me when I was studying for my VCP5 exam. The audio files that came with it definitely helped me with my preparation.
- vSphere Advanced Networking Training by Jason Nash
- I wasn’t sure what to expect with this course. I mean, there’s a standard switch and a distributed switch, and some settings, what else is there? Answer, A CRAP TON MORE. I am halfway through this course and I can tell you it has a lot of good content. I’m currently preparing for my VCAP5-DCA exam and I will be using this to help me prepare.
