As written in a previous post, Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE) certification is a documented proof that an engineer possesses the necessary level of expertise to correctly architect, implement and configure Veeam Software Solutions.

This Veeam’s certification (introduced with the v7 of its products) is a great investment for an IT professional looking to increase productivity, reduce operating costs, propel personal career advancement and achieve industry recognition.

VMCETo gain the certification, you need to take a 3 days course or with an Instructor-led training (in place or live) or using Video on demand learning (but this last is available only in North America) and then pass the  VMCE exam with a scores of 70% or higher (the exams includes 50 randomized questions from each of the course modules.

The new courses in the 2015 are already update with the v8 of the products.

But if you already got a VMCE v7, there is a simplified upgrade path:

  • Students who complete the VMCE 7 certification program will be entitled, with a specific restricted access, to the free online “VMCE 8 – What’s New” course on the Veeam website (actually I’ve not found yet the link of this new course).
  • These students will then need to pass the VMCE 8 proctored exam at an available Pearson VUE test center to upgrade their certificate from VMCE 7 to VMCE 8 (VUE site report that this exam will be available from the 15th of Jan 2015).
  • Students who attend the VMCE 7 ILT or the VODL, but who do not complete the VMCE 7 exam, will exceptionally be authorized to follow the free online “VMCE 8 – What’s New” course on the Veeam website, and then validate their VMCE certification with a VMCE 8 proctored exam at an available Pearson Vue test center.

Note that all VMCEs are required to stay current on knowledge and certifications related to Veeam Software. This includes re-certification on all new major releases of Veeam Software. VMCEs will have 120 days (the deadline for v8 has not been officially announced, but could be around May), after the release of a major software update and the release of associated upgrade courses and exams, to take the course and pass the exam necessary to upgrade the certification level.
