If you’re holding the below VCP as the latest version, these are planning to be NOT eligible to upgrade on year 2022.
– VCP-DTM 2018
– VCP-DW 2018
Assuming the following polices are still active on next year 2022.
– VCP upgrade is capable up to 3 versions back
– The new VCP will be released on January 1st of that year
If you’re planning to upgrade to the latest VCP 2021 from the above VCP, please do so within this year, which is by December 31st, 2021.
From January 1st, 2022, VCP 2021 is no longer available to earn, and there will be new VCP 2022 versions released with different qualification options which are planning to exclude the above VCPs. In that case, you’ll have to go through all the requirements like a new VCP candidate, such as attending the required courses, etc
Keep in mind that the above VCPs will NOT be expired, which means that you’ll be kept recorded as holding the VCP. But you’ll lose an efficient option to upgrade your VCPs to the latest version.
By the way, if you’re holding VCP 2019 or newer, you’re expected to be fine with having an eligible option to upgrade next year since it is within 3 versions back from the latest VCP 2022 version.
See you in the next post!
