Rhys, I'm not involved in preparing this course, you can clarify this question from the VMCE trainer. I will forward this question to our University team.

Hi Rhys, yes I confirm the VMCE course @ Veeam On will run on V9 content. Indeed it will be the first VMCE v9 course worldwide.

Kind regards

Hi Emeric, thanks for the information. One more question if I may, when can we expect the exam to be made available through Pearosn Vue.
I just had a quick look here; http://www.pearsonvue.com/veeam/ and it appears to only have the v8 exam available for now.
Im guessing sometime after v9 is officially released?

As mentioned before, as soon as v9 is GA (which will be soon) the VMCE exam will be available as well.

Hi guys

I just stumbled across this thread and took a moment to look on the Veeam University and Veeam Certification page to see if there are already some information about certification / re-certification.

All these information are available at https://www.veeam.com/vmce.html

Short summary:

VMCE 7/8 course attendees/certified engineers

    VMCE 7 course attendees with no exam: VMCE 7 course attendees who didn’t validate either VMCE 7 or
    VMCE v8 exam will be required to follow a full new VMCE v9 course and validate the full VMCE 9 proctored
    exam at a Pearson Vue test center.

    VMCE 7 certified engineers: VMCE 7 certified engineers who did not upgrade to VMCE v8 will
    exceptionally be provided with a free “What’s new V9” online course, and will then have to validate the full
    VMCE 9 exam at a Pearson Vue test center.

    VMCE 8 course attendees with no exam: VMCE 8 course attendees who didn’t validate VMCE 8 exam
    will exceptionally be provided with a free “What’s new V9” online course, and will then have to validate the
    VMCE 9 “delta” exam at a Pearson Vue test center.

    VMCE 8 certified Engineers: VMCE 8 Certified Engineers will be provided with a free “What’s New v9” online
    course (and potentially practice exam), and will automatically upgrade their status to VMCE v9 once completed.

VMCE Certification Maintenance: evolution of the rules

All VMCEs are required to stay current on knowledge and certifications related to Veeam Software.
Starting VMCE v9, Veeam evolves the mandatory paying VMCE upgrade certification rules from an “every major
release” to “every two major release” process. Example with VMCE v9:

    VMCE 8 certified engineers are provided with a free upgrade to their VMCE v9 status, and will have to validate
    again for VMCE v10 through a Pearson Vue proctored exam and potentially “What’s New” paying course.

    New students who validate VMCE v9 through a paying course and exam will be provided with a free
    upgrade path for VMCE 10, and will have to validate again VMCE v11 through a Pearson Vue proctored exam
    and potentially “What’s New” paying course.

As i mentioned above, these are information from Veeam's VMCE website. Perhaps there will be changes, i don't know. Just make sure you check the site from time to time to see if the certification for VMCE v9 is available. If your are a Veeam Reseller or Silver / Gold / Platinum Partner, perhaps you can contact your channel / partner manager for further information.

I whish you good luck for the next exam ;)
Best regards,
Karl

Is it just me, or did no one else get any email notifications on the VMCE upgrade path? Very poor communications that needs to be resolved by Veeam's management team in my opinion. This thread was opened several months ago - long enough that the management team should have been atleast able to send out an email to each member of the VMCE community of the required changes instead of us having to go search for them.

Hi,

So I've yet to have any information at all through about the VMCE v9 stuff, about what I do to upgrade my v8, what options are available etc.

If I didn't create this thread, then I'd be sat twiddling my thumbs. The communication from Veeam around this seems to be a little poor.

I would have expected at least one email off you guys explaining the changes and the fact its every two releases I need to sit the proctored paid for exam. Which I think should be free for anyone who is a partner as they pay a partner subscription fee.

Thanks Foggy, but based on past actions, and experiences - I won't hold my breath to hear from any of them or see an announcement. And to this point in time - I certainly wouldn't recommend this certification to anyone unless they absolutely need it for partner status. I'm usually pretty big on making sure the guys I employ are up to date and certified on the core products we sell and and support, but not this time. To this point it has been a waste of time, money and resources. What a joke.

Hi all,

I just started working for Veeam since January 1st. There was a lot of valuable feedback in this thread and every single piece is very valuable to us.

For example Dean Lewis wrote in May last year regarding certification expiration and based on this feedback we revised it very close to his suggeston: every second major release. As discussed in later replies if you for example passed VMCE v8, we will let you upgrade to v9 through a free online exam but for v10 you will need to re-certify at Pearson VUE again.

@Dean Colpitts, regarding your question on administrator course vs. architect course. This is a good point and I agree VMCE is not an architect course. Fortunately we have begun work on a second course, by popular demand from outstanding ProPartners such as yourself, which will be labeled VMCE Advanced. VMCE Advanced will be specifically a Architect course. If you are interested in deep details about this upcoming class ping me and I would love to engange in a Skype/WebEx meeting to tell you more and perhaps collect more of your great feedback.

@k00laid I don't expect we will release delta exams at Pearson VUE, instead we changed the system to Pearson VUE exam for initial exam, then free online exam @Veeam website then Pearson VUE and so on.

@PariPari Availability of VMCE v9 exam at Pearson VUE, for those not yet certified or those who like going there to recertify every version, we expect it to be available February 4th. I can unfortunately not guarantee this date as it is out of our hands and into the hands of Pearson VUE, as we have already submitted all questions/answers to them.

@Dean Colpitts We did not schedule e-mailing each Veeam Certified Engineer that a new version of VMCE was about to be released with information about upgrade rules etc., but based on your feedback I am working on writing such e-mail and having it sent out. I am sorry to hear that you feel the VMCE program is a joke and waste of both your resources and money - I would love to schedule a call with you on Skype/WebEx and hear your thoughts on how we could improve.
