VMware Recertification Rollback


Whoever thought we'd see this?! VMware made an overwhelmingly well-received change today regarding its VCP Certification program. Effective immediately, VMware is removing the requirement to recertify their VCP certifications within a two-year period. The decision to update and recertify is left up to YOU!

What does this mean for your expired certifications?
If you hold any of these previously expired certs, it will flip to showing Active starting in April 2019. If your cert changes to being active, you can complete the upgrade path to earn the latest version - no more expired cert upgrade path!


What if you spent time and money re-certifying one of these newly active certs?
VMware will provide you a free one-year premium license to the VMware Learning Zone - assuming you certified within the last 6 months.

Check out the official Blog Announcement and happy certifying!

  1. What about VCAP? (VMware Certified Advanced Professional 6 - Data Center Virtualization Design).
    Will it becom active again?
    It is listed as "emeritus" in my Transcript.
    Will it become active again?
    Will there be an upgrade path available?
    Thanks!
