New VMware Recertification Policy: Who? When? How?
Last month, VMware introduced its new recertification policy. So, if you are a VMware certification holder, chances are that you’ll have to recertify before 10 March 2015 to keep your credential current.
This policy covers for VCP certification. To recertify, VMware Certified Professional (VCP) holders must pass any VCP or higher-level exam within two years of earning their most recent VCP certification.
Until recently, VMware was one of the few IT certification providers who did not require their holders to recertify their skills. This may be convenient for lazy holders, but we all know that maintaining currency in the expertise is important, and employers are looking for candidates with the most updated credentials. And if your skills are not current, your certification loses value. The technical and business communities expect that VMware certified professionals are current on the latest technologies and capable of implementing VMware products with the highest level of skill. To ensure that all certification holders meet these expectations, VMware is instituting a recertification policy.
What exactly do I need to recertify?
All VCP level certifications — VCP-DCV, VCP-Cloud, VCP-Desktop — that were earned prior to March 10, 2013 must be recertified. Any VCP2, VCP3, VCP4, or VCP5 certification can be recertified during this period by simply taking a current VCP or VCAP exam. Anyone holding a VCP certification awarded prior to March 10, 2013 has until March 10, 2015 to recertify.

So, if you are a VCP, you now have yet another reason to stay up to date with industry trends, and keep your expertise current. We all know it’s sure to pay off ;).
