VCAP5 Upgrade Path
Typically you would need to take up VCP5 followed by the various VCAP track e.g. VCAP5DCD or VCAP5DCA to be certified VCAP in the different tracks.
However for now till 9th Oct 2012, the VCAP5DCA requires you only to take up VCAP5DCA if you are already VCAP4DCA to be upgraded. You will also get awarded wth VCP5.
As for those who are already VCAP4DCD, you just need to take up the VCP5 and VCAP5DCD to be VCAP5DCD.
