VMCE Certification – V7 to V8!

Today Veeam published the upgrade rules for VMCE7 certification to version 8. Students who complete the VMCE 7 certification program will be entitled, with a specific restricted access, to the free online “VMCE 8 – What’s New” course on the website. These students will then need to pass the VMCE 8 proctored exam at an available Pearson Vue test center to upgrade their certificate from VMCE 7 to VMCE 8.
