The Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE) certification program has already become a classic of the VeeamON conferences as we strongly believe education is the pillar of any IT professional’s job. Being a Veeam Certified Engineer not only confirms that you possess the required knowledge to deploy and configure Veeam products, but provides you direct access to support for critical on-site issues and will definitely help those looking to take their career at the next level.
Nevertheless, there’s much more about the VMCE certification program during VeeamON 2018 in Chicago and I will share all the updates with you in this blog post.
Training format at VeeamON 2018
While last year the VMCE training was open to everybody with no requirements, at VeeamON 2018 in Chicago, it will be slightly different, as there will be three classes. The first one will be dedicated to those who have already attended a VMCE standard training previously and now would like to pass the VMCE standard exam. The other two classes will focus on those who already have VMCE level knowledge and wants to either move to the next level on design and sizing or deep dive into our new product Veeam Availability Orchestrator.
Based on last year’s feedback, the classes will happen after the main event — except the Exam Prep class.
So, if you decided to sign up for the VMCE training, you can enroll in the following classes:
- VMCE Exam Preparation
This is a one-day instructor-led class and will occur on Monday, May 14 with the goal of preparing the students to pass the certification exam. Prerequisite: Must have already attended a VMCE standard class.
- VMCE-Advanced Design & Optimization (ADO)
This is a two-day (Thursday, May 17 and Friday, May 18) technical course meant to teach engineers how to design and optimize Veeam Availability Suite following Veeam solutions architects’ best practices. Prerequisite: VMCE level knowledge is required for this class.
This class also takes place on Thursday, May 17 and Friday, May 18 and will teach attendees how to deploy, configure and manage the new Veeam Availability Orchestrator. The class combines lectures and live Hands-On Lab exercises to offer a comprehensive learning experience, as well as maximum knowledge transfer to students. Please note that this class has very limited seating. Do not wait to register.
Important: All classes include a voucher that enables attendees to take the certification exam at the on-site Pearson VUE Testing Center after the class or post-event. Exam vouchers are valid for 12 months.
