The new 2020 VMware Certifications and Badges are now available. With the year designator, it becomes clearer when you earned it and how current your expertise is. The credential you earn depends on when you complete the requirements.


If you met all the requirements in 2019 (starting on January 16, 2019 – ending December 31, 2019), then you earned the 2019 Certification or Badge. Requirements completed from January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 will earn you the 2020 version. Beginning January 1, 2020 all 2019 Certifications and Badges are discontinued⁠—meaning they are still valid and shown on your transcript but no longer attainable.


We will be communicating how the upgrade paths work for 2020 in an upcoming blog, so watch for that very soon.


To learn more of our new Certifications and Badges we invite you to visit our Certification Homepage.


We will also be posting FAQs on our website to help answer other questions as they come up. Post any questions you may have here, and we will answer and/or create an FAQ for it!
