VMware Certifications Overview

Certifications are valuable assets for any IT professional and VMware certifications are widely believed to reflect exceptional competence. Your VMware certification validates your ability to successfully employ current VMware products using best practices in operational environments.

VMware certifications coincide with four different solution tracks: VMware Data Center Virtualization, Cloud, End User Computing and Network Virtualization. Within each solution track are certification levels starting from Associate or Professional, and continuing upwards to Advanced and Expert Levels.

VMware Re-Certification Policy

 

 

Earning a VCP certification is a great achievement. But staying up to date in the expertise gained and proved by your certification is equally vital. If your skills are not current, your certification loses value. To ensure that all VCP holders maintain their proficiency, VMware is implementing a re-certification policy. To re-certify, VMware Certified Professional (VCP) holders must pass any VCP or higher-level exam within two years of earning their most recent VCP certification. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate your effectiveness with VMware technology.

RE-CERTIFYING IF YOU ARE A VCP5-DCV, VCP-CLOUD OR VCP5-DT.

Three options:

  1. Pass the latest exam for your certification. For instance, if you earned VCP5-DCV certification by passing the VCP510 exam, you could now take the VCP550 exam.
  2. Earn a new VCP certification in a different solution track - such as Network Virtualization, Cloud or End-User Computing.
  3. Go to the next level, by earning a VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) certification. For example, if you are a VCP5-DCV, you could earn VCAP5-DCA certification.

 

Re-certification Process

  1. You will be notified that your certification is due to expire via the email address associated with your MyLearn account. Your transcript will also show the dates your certification is valid.
  2. To re-certify, you must pass any VCP or higher-level exam within two years of earning your most recent VCP certification.
  3. Failure to re-certify by the required date will result in revocation of your certification.
    1. If your certification is revoked, you will lose access to the VCP portal and your right to market yourself as certified for that certification, which includes the use of VMware certification logos. Also, your transcript will reflect that your certification is no longer valid.
    2. If you would like to re-earn a certification for which you have been decertified, you must satisfy the same prerequisites as any candidate attempting to earn that certification for the first time.
