VCDX Application & Defense
The VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) certification requires a successful oral defense of a VMware vSphere based virtual infrastructure design. To apply for the VCDX defense, the candidate will need to prepare and submit a VCDX Application, describing a virtual infrastructure design and provide the rationale for the design choices that were made.
Candidates are advised to select a design with sufficient complexity, one that can be used to demonstrate the depth and breadth of knowledge and skills relevant to architecting virtual infrastructures. The application form must be accompanied by a complete set of design documentation, including implementation guides. Please read both the VCDX Blueprint and the VCDX Handbook & Application carefully for requirements and instructions.
When planning for your pre-requisite exams and budgeting time to work on your VCDX Application, it is important to note that applications are due approximately three months before the actual VCDX Defense dates.
Application is open to all who qualify. There is no longer a requirement to receive an invitation to apply. A candidate can have only one application submitted at any one time.
