VMCE 2021 Released!

Hi,

 

I don’t know if anyone else was aware but @haslund highlighted to me today that the new VMCE 2021 exam is now available for everyone looking to take/upgrade!

 

Information on the training course is available here

Information on the certification is available here

 

FAQs:

Do I need to attend the training course before taking the exam?

If you don’t hold a valid VMCE 2020 certification, it is mandatory.

If you do have a VMCE 2020 certification, it is recommended but not required.

The one exception is if you took the VMCE 2020 class within the last year but have not passed the exam, you can take the VMCE 2021 exam until your class was sat one year ago.

 

Can I still take the VMCE 2020 exam?

Whilst Veeam continue to offer it, but it will be discontinued.

 

Do I need to take the VMCE to do the VMCA?

No, but it is recommended!


Full FAQs from Veeam available here

 

Planning on doing your VMCE/VMCA, or already taken it? Let me know your thoughts!

Nice! Good luck @vNote42 !! I thought the course was just ‘ok’. But the VMCA course I thoroughly enjoyed.

I booked my first Veeam course ever (VMCE) a few days ago. So I guess the first Veeam certification I will take is this one :joy:

Best of luck.

Last year, between Jan and May, I took 6 total certs - Veeam, AWS x 2, Azure x2, and VMware. That sucked. The only reward I get for mine is my own satisfaction that I passed 🤷‍♂️

It could be worse! Microsoft now make you do refresher exams to validate your certifications. I got my M365:EAE but I have to renew my MS100 and MS101 annually or it will expire. Plus I used my MCSE as the pre-req but as that will be archived soon I’ll need to pass a specialisation such as MS Teams (which feels like it changes every 5 mins, very hard to study such a moving target!) and then I’ll be renewing that every year too…

Company is getting me the voucher from VeeamON to take the v11 course.  Will be interesting.

Oh no; my motivation for MS certifications is already rather low so renewing them every year will be hard...Soon we're going to write exams all the time 😅

If they could bill you for that too that’s what they’d do! Thankfully the renewal isn’t proctored. If so I think I’d have let some stuff lapse…

So, I need to take VMCE 2020 before?

I don’t understand why.

If you hold VMCE v9(.5)...yes; otherwise, you would need to take the Course for VMCE2021. $200 for exam is cheaper than $1500-$4000 for Course 🤷‍♂️

Cheers!

I don’t think you need to take this one prior to the new VMCE2021.  Just maybe a good idea to see what the tests are like and get the cert but definitely not a requirement.

Exactly.  I am taking VMCE2020 just to upgrade.  Have the new VMCE course booked for August then take VMCE2021 after that. :)

Well, you don’t *need* the new Course if you pass the VMCE2020. But, if you simply just wanted to take the Course (like, cuz your org pays for it)..than still all good :)

Yeah my org bought the voucher for VeeamON since it was 70% discounted so taking the course anyway will be a good refresher for v11 and exam.

You’re a glutton for punishment! Or, just really love Rasmus or Joe or Bart or whoever will be teaching it 😉 hahaha

Nah always good to attend a class as it has been a while since 9.x class I took years ago.  LOL

I don’t have any certification of VMCE. However I done the course VMCE 2021.

So, can I try it right?
