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.

The VCDX has 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 will be due: either $3000 for in-person defenses or $995 for remote defenses. First-time defenses are typically held in-person; however, we are currently only offering remote defenses due to in-person restrictions. Fees are subject to change. Any and all costs related to traveling to a design defense are the candidate's responsibility.

No, it will not. The presentation is a tool to refer to when answering questions from the panelists, rather than to use as a full presentation. Although you will be given a few minutes to provide an overview, be prepared to start answering questions at any time. Use your presentation as an indexed tool to quickly jump to slides that will help answer specific questions. Since the panelists have reviewed the design already, they will already know much of what you are presenting, and they want to ensure there is time to answer questions they have. Overall, it is better to answer the questions than to go slide by slide through the presentation.

Digital Workspace (DW) solution track has changed to End-User Computing (EUC). Both Desktop Management and Digital Workspace certifications are part of the EUC domain, although they each relate to different roles. While both domains relate to managing devices and applications for end users, the purposes, use cases, platforms, hosting and methods are different. Click here to learn more.

To upgrade from a VCDX-EUC to VCDX-EUC 2024, you will need to pass the VMware Certified Advanced Professional 7 – Desktop Management Design (3V0-752) exam.
