    Is anyone VCDX Certified?

    rschmidt1300 Enthusiast

       

      I got an email from a recruiter today looking for someone to fill a contract and they preferred someone who is VCDX certified but would consider a VCP.  Is the complete VCDX certification available yet and if so has anyone gotten it yet?

       

       

       

       

       

      Thanks

          The start of it is available - there are components still being developed - like the design defense - so I do not think there us anyone who has obtained that cert yet -

            There are no VCDX's yet. Not all of the required elements exist:

             

             

             

             

             

            1. The VCP exam can be done.

             

             

            2. The Enterprise Admin exam can be done, once you've gone through the process of registering for the VCDX program to take it (a few weeks by my experience).

             

             

            3. The Design exam doesn't exist yet, the last I heard it was due to be released this month.

             

             

            4. I've not heard when the design submission and presentation starts, or any details about it.

              Thanks guys.  I didn't think it was possible to be a VCDX yet but I wasn't sure.  I think it is interesting that it is coming up in job requirements before it is even fully available.

                Have you actually seen the VCDX mentioned as a job requirement?  It surprises me to see the VCP certification being listed.

                  Jason,

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                  It wasn't exactly listed as a requirement.  The email from the recruiter said "VCDX certification preferred but will consider the VCP".  I've seen alot of positions asking for the VCP or just VMware certification required/preferred/helpful.

                    WOW! Were they asking for ten years experience with Windows 2008 too? I've seen that a few times.

                      That is so typical of recruitment agents in the UK, they ask for certifications that don't even exist, they ask for every certification that is in any way relevant to the role and offer you a salary of £15000, they put you forward for interviews for roles that you cannot actually do.....

                       

                       

                       

                       

                       

                      I trained a guy a few months back, he told me he'd seen a job on an agency website asking for a HyperV and SCVMM expert - this was months before either product was released!

                              Not even VMware employees can apply, as no body has taken the Design defend panel yet.

                                My thoughts exactly Tom.  It's not possible to be certified as VCDX.

                                  Actually there is no any bigh ammendment in VCDX  exam just adding a candidate's picture to a score report and on the VUE authentication website. If you still have any doubt you can contact at certification@vmware.com or 1-866-377-4710,

                                    Gee Uhhh... thanks for the information on how to become a VCP. Even though you are missing one minor detail about attending approved training and it is obvious that you are  hawking a cheat sheet site, I will answer your post. Vue has nothing to do with the VCDX exam track right now.
