Announcements VMware Workspace ONE

The Workspace ONE for macOS Skills Exam and Badge Are Here

As we’ve shared in previous blogs, we’re in the process of releasing a series of capabilities that are setting our Workspace ONE Mac management functionality on par with our world-renowned iOS management. As we continue to improve this, we want to ensure that we’re providing Workspace ONE users with all the tools necessary to get the greatest possible benefit.

Last year, we launched our free, 100% online macOS Management training program, and let you know that an exam and badge would be coming.

Today, we’re excited to follow that up by announcing the immediate availability of the new Workspace ONE for macOS Skills exam.

Step 1: Take your macOS Management training

In brief review, our training covers all of the macOS management functions available in Workspace ONE in detail, with topics like:

  • Integrating Workspace ONE with Apple Business Manager
  • Understanding enrollment types and device staging
  • Understanding application management for macOS
  • Understanding configuration management for macOS

Many of you have already taken advantage of our comprehensive training course to bring yourselves up to speed on all the various Mac management options available in Workspace ONE.

Step 2: Take the all-new exam and get your badge

The new Workspace ONE for macOS Skills exam is a 65-question test that will probe your understanding of our macOS capabilities and test how well you’ve retained what you learned in the online course.

Note that, while the training course is free to all, there is a nominal fee to take the exam and get the badge. We urge you to take the training as soon as you’re able (it’s a self-paced course) then take the exam and receive your badge so you can use it in email signatures and online forums.

Extra Credit: Sign up for the VMware Technology Network, our online user community

Speaking of online forums, once you’ve become an expert in Mac management, it’s time for you to take your knowledge to the VMware Technology Network (VMTN), our online community of Workspace ONE and other VMware users. If you’re not a member of our community yet, sign up and then navigate through the Digital Workspace area and find the macOS boards, where your expertise will be greatly appreciated by fellow users looking for answers to technical and other questions!

The main lesson: It’s time to manage your macs with Workspace ONE

If you haven’t started managing your Macs at all yet because you weren’t sure exactly how to go about it, now is the time to get up to speed on Mac management with Workspace ONE and stop managing your Macs ad hoc.

Or, if you’re using some other tool to manage your Macs, this training course is an opportunity to learn about the full macOS management functionality built into Workspace ONE, so you can consolidate all your device management into ONE solution that will save your organization money, time, and effort.
