Hi All,

A couple new big announcements from VMware as VMworld 2018 approaches.

Firstly, they have announced New Certification Versioning, where the year will be used to identify when the certification was earned. Below is a link to the VMware Certification page with details:

Secondly, they have now announced the release of three new certifications:

    Haven't noticed any changes to the VCP Recertification Policy:

    VCP certifications expire two years from the date it was earned. The recertification policy gives you three ways to recertify:
    • Advance to the next level by earning a new VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) certification in the same track as your VCP.
    • Earn the next version of VCP in the same track (if available).
    • Earn a new VCP certification in a different track.
