The VMware Certifications You Need To Know About

Global channel chief Jenni Flinders wants partners to understand which VMware certifications are the most valuable in 2019 as the virtualization superstar is preparing to launch its new VMware Partner Connect program early next year.

“We’re going to keep driving the value of our certifications in the industry, especially as we launch Connect,” said Flinders, vice president and Global Channel Chief at VMware in an interview with CRN. “Partners getting these certifications that are highly valued across our very strategic areas of the IT industry is critical, but it’s also how we identify partners who have the most certifications so we can get their story out to customers so customers know who’s the best of the best.”

Flinders is spearheading the new VMware Partner Connect program that changes the way the company engages and incentivizes its channel community. Flinders and Robin Gunn, vice president of worldwide education delivery and sales, explain to CRN the certifications and the benefits achieved through certifications that partners need to drive in 2019.

Breaking Down VMware’s 4 Certification Levels

VMware currently has a total of four certification levels: VCA (Associate), VCP (Professional), VCAP (Advanced Partner) and VCDX (Design Expert). These certifications count towards achieving VMware’s Master Services Competencies.

VCA is the entry level certification ideal for administrators and executives who are making decisions about VMware solutions. VCP is designed for administrators and engineers who install, configure, manage and optimize VMware platforms. The VCAP is an advanced certification level targeting the architects and engineers who design and build VMware solutions while also offering management and optimization skills. The highest level of certification is VCDX, tailored to the architects who design, build and manage VMware solutions and systems for customers.

“Our VCDX are our all-stars,” said Gunn. “We only have about 200 of them across the globe. They are the top of the top.”
