The What's New in Veeam Certified Engineer v9 class is now published.
Please note, that it could take up to a week before everyone has access to it.

Setting up access for customers/partners is a somewhat manual process, because for example VMCE v7 students we need to verify if they passed the VMCE exam or not before adding them.
If you feel you should have access, but do not have access after February 26th, 2016 please send an e-mail to:
EMEA region: VMCE.Support.EMEA-(at)-veeam.com
North America: mark.johnston-(at)-veeam.com

P.S. I am on vacation in China until February 26th with extremely limited access to internet, but I will try to check back in as often as possible.

It seems to be more interested in keeping me behind the firewall, than I am interested in hiding behind it :-(
Speedtest inside China: 20 Mbit/s down and 10 Mbit/s up. Speedtest outside China 1,5 Mbit/s down and 128 Kbit/s up with latency 200+ ms :-(

The What's New in Veeam Certified Engineer v9 class is now ready!
Everyone who should have access, has access now*

Good luck on upgrading your VMCE certification to v9!

The process of upgrading is:
1. Open https://www.veeam.com/my-vmce-certification.html
2. Sign In
3. You should see something similar to Congratulations, <first name> <last name>
4. Scroll down a bit and click green button labeled "Register for VMCE v9"
5. You will now be able to see upgrade path to VMCE v9.
6. Click link to "Complete What's New Course" - https://www.veeam.com/vmce-whats-new-course.html
7. This redirects you to What's New Course on lms.veeam.com
8. Complete watching the "What's new in Veeam Certified Engineer v9" video (yes you need to watch all parts of it)
9. Pass the Self-Check Test


*If you feel you should have access, but do not have access at this time it could be because:
1) You are VMCE v7/v8 certified, but are logging in using a different e-mail than we have registered for you.
2) You attended a VMCE v8 class, but the VMAEC (Veeam Authorized Education Center) did not report your attendance to Veeam.
3) Undetermined human error :-)

If you feel you might fall into one of these three categories please send an e-mail to:
EMEA region: VMCE.Support.EMEA-(at)-veeam.com
North America: mark.johnston-(at)-veeam.com

Please make sure to include all relevant details such as:
Where did you attend your VMCE class?
When did you attend your VMCE class?
Which version of VMCE class did you attend?
Which e-mail did you provide to the education center? (If you don't remember, please include proof of class attendance from the education center)
Who was your instructor? (If you don't remember, that's okay but we might take longer to respond)
When did you pass your VMCE exam? (if did not pass the exam, please indicate that)
Which version of the exam did you pass? (if did not pass the exam, please indicate that)
Which e-mail did you have assigned to your Pearson VUE account when passing the exam? (if did not pass the exam, please indicate that)

Two updates

One:
I have published a brief VMCE v9 Guide on my blog
It includes upgrade paths from VMCE v7/8 class attendees and links to both the official and unofficial v9 practice exams.

Two:
I have received reports of two users who:
- Are eligible for upgrade to VMCE v9
- As far as I can see followed the correct procedure to upgrade to VMCE v9

...but on Veeam VMCE website do not receive credit for it.
First of all, I am very sorry for this inconvenience! Please trust this has been reported to our web team and they are investigating it.

If you are affected by this please do send me a PM with all your details as it will help in our investigation.

Issue resolved

The issue previously mentioned, where completing the What's New in VMCE v9 course and exam, but still not getting credit for it on Veeam.com/VMCE has been resolved.

Thank you to all who sent me a very detailed PM, it helped expedite the resolution.

If you checked again after seeing this post and still face this issue, I am deeply sorry and request you contact me via PM with your details.

Hi Rasmus,

The try again for the official practice test does not seem to work as it just shows you your result.

Please tell me that the unofficial one is harder? :) :)

I have forwarded this issue and will update the thread once I hear back.

Regarding unofficial practice exam, give it a shot and let me know :mrgreen:
Usually people say the unofficial practice exam was more difficult than the real exam.
I guess it's because it tests knowledge, attention and two questions will require some Google Fu to answer :wink:

Just remember, passing any practice exam does not mean you will pass the real exam, practice exams are a study tool to help identify weak areas.

Thanks Rasmus,

Yes I passed the official one twice but the unofficial one it tough. I could be wrong but I think in the official one it gives you some points for multiple choice answers that are mostly right whereas the unofficial one kills you (unless you use google, which I did not, stuck with using only the force... but Vader won out this time :) :)

I have booked my exam for next week and am a little nervous as, at least in the forums, no one else is talking about it. I sure hope I am not first in line. I am first in line for free beers normally but not for exams and dentist appointments :).

Rasmus, you said that everything you need to pass is in the text book, but on your practice exam there was stuff definitely not in the textbook, I hope that was just a cattle prod to get people to study more :)

I can confirm there are people already sitting and passing the VMCE v9 exam at Pearson VUE :-)

That is indeed the very intent, actually there are only (as I remember it) two questions out of fifty on my unofficial practice exam that can not be found in the text book or practice labs book - the rest was made by taking the text book, a marker and marking away on stuff I could use for questions :-)

I will be looking for your exam results, I am sure you can make it!

Re: VMCE v9 - Another exam to take

Veeam Logoby Greg Lamb » Sat Feb 20, 2016 10:05 pm

Hello,

I have been having troubles receiving confirmation on my VMCE certification status. I have not received the "welcome packet" and the VMCE website does not show that I obtained the v8 certification.

I wrote and passed the exam on Nov 12th, 2015 but have not had any correspondence since. I reached out to Mark Johnston who confirmed that I passed the exam and commented "that it was also about the same time we were moving to an automated test score reporting system. This may have fallen through the cracks." and that he was going to follow up with the team in Russia. It has been 6 going 7 weeks and am not getting any further responses via email.

Please help
