FAQs

Why does the VCDX-DTM 2019 have a year designator as its version?

The year makes it easier for certification holders, and the people who hire them, to easily and immediately recognize how current a certification is. It allows more frequent certification updates versus intermittent updates based on product feature releases.

If I have more than one VCDX, can I take any VCAP Design exam to upgrade?

The tracks are all individual, so to upgrade your VCDX, you will need to take the VCAP Design exam in that track. For example, if you are a VCDX-DTM, regardless of how many other VCDXs you hold, you will need to pass the VCAP7-DTM Design exam to upgrade to VCDX-DTM 2019.

What are the costs associated with the VCDX program?

There are two separate fees: An Application Fee of $995 USD is collected when you have submitted a complete application package. If the application is accepted for a defense before the VCDX Panel, a Defense Fee of $3000 USD will be due. Fees are subject to change.

Any and all costs related to traveling to a design defense are the candidate's responsibility.
