Those who’ve been sitting on the fence when it comes to pursuing Citrix virtualization certification may want to stop sitting, and start making exam plans. That’s because prospective candidates for two of its virtualization certification exams can save $75 off the $300 tab (25% off, in other words) if they register for them before December 31, 2010. The exams in question are:
- Citrix Certified Enterprise Engineer (CCEE for Virtualization; exam CVE-400-1 Engineering a Citrix Virtualization Solution). Candidates will do best here if they already hold the CCAA cert; otherwise a whole slew of pre-requisites also apply before you’ll be eligible for the aforementioned credential).
- Citrix Certified Integration Architect (CCIA for Virtualization; exam CVA-500-1 Architecting a Citrix Virtualization Solution). Candidates should hold the CCEE prior to pursuing this exam and its associated application process.
In my opinion, this means that anybody who’s considering this sequence of certs, and will be able to take these exams some time next year, should go ahead and pony up for both exams to save the $150 that this offer extends to those who take it up. This will be of primary interest to IT professionals who already hold the CCAA or CCA credentials, and could just be the impetus needed to get them in motion, to climb a few more rungs up the Citrix certification ladder.
