I just found out that Veeam have released the VMCA 2022 course and exam.
We’ve had a few discussions around this exam within the community as originally Veeam were intending for everyone to take the VMCA 2022 course prior to sitting the exam, however between then and now they’ve changed it. I checked my portal this morning and it showed the “Step 1. Attend a training course” as ticked. I checked with my account manager that this was intentional and they confirmed it’s no longer mandatory to redo the course if you’ve already got a VMCA v1.
To find out more simply go to: Get Veeam Certified Now! and then click on the “Veeam Certified Architect” tab.
- I took the VMCA v1 training course but never took the exam, what should I do?
- The VMCA v1 is expected to retire on 31st December 2021, either sit the exam or take the VMCA 2022 training course and work on that instead.
- Should I take the training course?
- Of course, it’s not always cost-effective for some people to take the training course again but the VMCE-ADO course was released a long time ago, and Veeam has progressed a lot since then, the best way to know you still know the best practices and recommendation from Veeam is to refresh your training!
- What should I do to prepare?
- Take the training course if possible.
- Review the VMCA 2022 exam guide within the Veeam certification section.
- Make sure you hold a current VMCE certification or a VMCEv1, you require one of these to achieve VMCA certification.
- Check out some of these awesome resources:
@Chris.Childerhose’s Veeam Backup & Replication v10 book - “Mastering Veeam Backup & Replication 10” @coolsport00’s VMCE-ADO Study Guide (I know this is for v9.5 but it’s such a great structure that you can use it to identify any potential weaknesses and research against the latest materials).
