VMware Changes Its Recertification Requirements for VCPs
February 05, 2019 / Wendy A Hernandez
In a move to appease its certification community, this week VMware Inc. announced it will no longer require mandatory recertification every two years for VMware Certified Professionals, effective immediately. As Karl Childs explained in his blog post , "We want you to upgrade and recertify when it's important or viable for you."In addition to the blog post, an accompanying video and FAQ doc were included to help explain the changes in more detail. According to the FAQ doc, upgrade paths do not go away and will still apply for active certifications. Folks looking to upgrade to the latest version within the same track can do so if they're within three versions -- a change from having to be within two versions. Upgrading to a different track still requires VCPs to be within two versions.
