VMware Certified Professional Recertification Policy

The VMware recertification policy provides four recertification options:

  1. Take the current exam for your existing VCP certification solution track. For example, if you are a VCP3, you could take the current VCP5-Data Center Virtualization (VCP5-DCV) exam.
  2. Earn a new VCP certification in a different solution track. For example, if you are a VCP-Cloud, you could recertify by earning VCP5-Desktop (VCP5-DT) certification.
  3. Advance to the next level by earning a VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) certification. For example, if you are a VCP5-DCV you could earn VCAP5-DCA certification.
  4. Renew your current VCP5 DCV by completing a limited-time, streamlined delta exam. The exam is based only on the delta (new) material between the vSphere 5.0/5.1 and vSphere 5.5 exams.

Recertification Process
  • You will be notified that your certification is due to expire via the email associated with your MyLearn account. Your transcript will also show the dates your certification is valid.
  • To recertify, you must pass any VCP or higher-level exam within two years of earning your most recent VCP certification.
  • Failure to recertify by the required date will result in revocation of your certification.
    • If your certification is revoked, you will lose access to the VCP portal and your right to market yourself as certified for that certification, which includes the use of VMware certification logos. Also, your transcript will reflect that your certification is no longer valid.
    • In order to regain certified status if your certification is revoked, you must satisfy all the pre-requisites for that certification as a new candidate.
    • You cannot use the same course that was used to meet the pre-requisite for your revoked certification to meet the pre-requisite for your new certification.
