Click here for see all the paths to acquire VCP & VCAP (VCIX) certification.

 

If you have VCAP certification for both Design and Deploy (Administration) on the same solution track, you can earn VCIX (VMware Certified Implementation Expert). VCIX is not a certification hen there is no exam, but it is a milestone that you have expertise across designing and deploying VMware product and solution. Below is the overall image.

 

Note: The following certification(s) has not been released yet (as of July, 2018). It is shown in the diagram as just an example.

  • VCAP6.5-DCV Deploy
  • VCAP7-DTM Deploy
  • VCAP7-CMA Deploy

 

The guidelines here are:

  • VCIX can be earned if certified on both Deploy (Administration) and Design VCAP certification on the same solution track
  • Same version as well as different version can be used for Deploy and Design VCAP certification
  • Needs both Design and Deploy. Having multiple VCAP Deploy certifications or multiple VCAP Design certifications won’t count as VCIX.
  • Deploy and Design VCAP on different solution track cannot be used for earning VCIX
  • VCIX version available from VCIX6 version or later. No VCIX5 or prior version.
  • Earning VCAP6-NV Deploy certification will also gives VCIX6-NV status since there is VCAP6-NV Design certification not available.

 

Let me show you some examples.

 

The diagram below is the case you have earned VCAP6-CMA Deploy and VCAP6-CMA Design. This will earn VCIX milestone since VCAPs are in the same solution track and are a combination of Deploy and Design. This case will earn VCIX6-CMA milestone.

 

The diagram below is the case you have earned VCAP4-DCA and VCAP6.5-DCV Design. This will earn VCIX milestone since VCAPs are in the same solution track and are a combination of Deploy and Design. It is possible that both VCAPs are having the different version as long as they are in the same solution track . This case will earn VCIX6.5-DCV milestone.

 

The diagram below is the case you have earned VCAP5-DCA and VCAP7-CMA Design. This will NOT earn VCIX milestone since VCAPs are a combination of Deploy and Design but are in the different solution track.

 

The diagram below is the case you have earned VCAP4-DCA and VCAP6.5-DCV Deploy. This will NOT earn VCIX milestone since VCAPs are in the same solution track but are both Deploy (Administration) certification.

 

The diagram below is the case you have only earned VCAP6-NV Deploy certification. This will earn VCIX milestone since currency for NV solution track, there is only Deploy certification is available and not Design certification. Earning VCAP6-NV Deploy will automatically earn VCIX6-NV milestone.

 

See you at the next post!
