Trek to the VCAP certification

After seeing the possibility of obtaining an advanced certification in the VMware Virtualization realm I began examining the courses available in my immediate area.

For the Datacenter Administration Certification VCAP4-DCA

For the Datacenter Design Certification VCAP4-DCD

I am starting to see courses pop up in the Canadian region but I am not sure when to take the courses.  These are first run courses and are bound to have some issues in the delivery until they get all the kinks out.  If you are reading this and have had some experience with the course please leave a comment.
