How does the VCAP6-DTM Design count towards a VCIX6-DTM?

The VCIX6-DTM is awarded once a candidate holds both VCAP6 exams. If you hold the VCAP6-DTM Design certification, you need only earn the VCAP6-DTM Deploy certification to be awarded the VCIX6-DTM.

However, if you currently hold a previous version of the VCAP, you may upgrade to VCIX6-DTM. See your alternatives here.
