What is Certified Virtualization Expert Official Certification?
CVE and CVE 4.0 Candidates
Candidates for this exam typically work in a Virtual Infrastructure environment where they are responsible for the implementation and configuration of virtualized servers using VMware ESX or ESXi Server and VMware VirtualCenter Server. Their organizations use VMware ESX Server to reduce the number of physical servers required to run their business through the virtualization of existing servers, reducing space requirements and the cost of electricity and cooling, due to the reduction in the number physical servers.
Candidates should have six months to a year of experience in monitoring, analyzing, and planning the use of VMware ESX Server in a medium-size to enterprise-size computing environment.
The qualified candidate for this exam will have learned all aspects of planning, architecting, installation, configuration, deployment, analyzing, backing up, monitoring, and securing a VMware Virtual Infrastructure consisting of ESX/ESXi Servers and the virtual machines created on them. Candidates become qualified to take this certification exam by attending one of the VMware Ultimate Bootcamps® worldwide.
Certified Virtualization Expert® Objective
The objective of the Certified Virtualization Expert® (CVE®) designation is to confirm upon the certificate holder the best of breed of virtual infrastructure professional certifications. The CVE® conveys that the individual who achieves the certification not only has the certificate, but more importantly possesses the in-depth knowledge related to virtual design, maintenance, and infrastructure management, is a subject matter expert in the field of virtualization, and that his/her training is current, relevant, and complete.
Why Should Individuals Get Certified?
Certification can lead to better visibility, opportunities, and jobs. In today's increasingly complex and highly-specialized economy, credentials are everything. Sure, the student knows that he/she has the skills to do the job, but how do they convince potential customers and employers? For many career-minded professionals, certification is often the answer.
For IT professionals, it is recognized as a valuable way to prove professional credentials to employers and the general public. For others, the topic can generate a puzzled response. Why become certified? Isn't a college degree and/or years of practical hands-on experience enough to establish one's credentials? Either response of yes or no is correct, depending on your clientele and colleagues.
How to get a CVE® Certification
1. Attend an Official Ultimate Bootcamp® prior to taking the test.
2. Pass the CVE® exam with a score of 75% or better.
3. The CVE® exam is 2 hours in length, consists of 80 questions covering critical virtualization technologies in use today.
