VMware Certification Requirements Q&A

Do you have questions about VMware’s certification requirements? We have the answers! Read on to learn the what, why, where and who behind certification requirements and how they may play a part in your next certification.

Q: What is the value of certification requirements?

A: Certification requirements hold value because they signify that you completed the necessary lessons, training, seminars and hands-on experiences that are required to fill the job. Completing your certification requirements can really pay off. A Pearson VUE survey discovered that, of the 10,000 certified professionals surveyed, 34% reported receiving a salary increase as a result of earning an industry-recognized certification. Additionally, for 24% of them, the salary increase was substantial: 20% or better!

Q: Why are certification requirements important?

A: Certification requirements keep our certifications valid and reliable across all certification candidates, which helps support and build relevancy in the industry. When you complete certification requirements, you can use a certification designation. A certification designation means a specific certification program granted you the certification requirements for the applicable solution track or technology. Upon completion of the applicable certification requirements and your receipt of a passing score on the certification exam, VMware grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, non-sublicensable, personal, revocable right to designate yourself with the applicable certification designation. You may use that certification designation only to promote your qualifications related to the use of the applicable product line or technology.
