Does Veeam deliver the training?
All Veeam instructor-led training is delivered by Veeam Authorized Education Centers (VMAECs), using only Veeam Certified Trainers (VMCT).
I am not close to a VMAEC. Where can I take a class?
We have a wide network of VMAECs covering many locations. If you can’t find one HERE, many VMAECs allow you to take the class in a “live online” format or as a remote student attending virtually in a classroom.
How much does the class cost?
Please request pricing from the VMAECs in your location.
Do you deliver the class in my language?
The courseware is in English, but the class is often delivered in the local language. 
The class is not showing as complete on my profile. Why is this?
Once you have completed the class, your attendance is reported, verified and uploaded. This can take a week. If it is not complete after a week, please let us know on the email below.
Can I study online and sit the exam?
No, to sit any Veeam certification exam, you must attend a prerequisite class at a VMAEC.
I only work with VMware. Do I need to study the Microsoft content to pass the exam?
You need to study all the content provided in the class. 
Does the class cover everything I need to pass the exam?
No, the class covers a lot of content examined in the class, but it is expected that you have a minimum of six months commercial experience with Veeam. It is also advised that you review labs (where available), release notes, user guides and demos to round out your knowledge.
I’m attending a class remotely. What do I need?
For the best experience, you should have a good quality internet connection and two monitors, but check with your VMAEC for specific needs.

I have taken the class and want to book the exam, but it’s grayed out on my profile. Why is this?
It can take up to a week for us to verify and upload course attendees. If it takes more than a week, it is often as a result of using different email addresses. If not, please email us and we will investigate. 
Can I sit the exam straight away?
You can sit the exam as soon as your course attendance is verified. We do, however, recommend spending some time reviewing, revising and practicing to have the best chance of exam success. 
How do I reschedule or cancel an exam? 

If you wish to reschedule or cancel your exam, you may do this online via your account or contact the Pearson VUE Customer Service Team at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled exam appointment.

NOTE: Rescheduling or cancelling less than 48 hours prior to your appointment will result in forfeiting your exam fee.

To cancel or reschedule an exam online, follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to your Veeam account.
  2. Go to My VMCE certification page.
  3. Select your desired exam and click "Schedule exam" (for VMCE) or "Go to Pearson VUE" (for VMCE-Advanced), which will then automatically sign you into your Pearson VUE account.

I have failed the exam, when can I retake it?

There is a 24-hour waiting period after the first failed attempt and a 14-calendar day waiting period after the following three failed attempts (from the second to the fourth attempts) for certification exams.

After the fifth failed attempt, there is a 12-month waiting period or the candidate must submit a request and obtain permission from the VMCE Security Team — — for each additional attempt.

After the candidate has waited 12 months, there is a 14-calendar day waiting period after the sixth to ninth failed attempts. After the tenth failed attempt, the candidate must wait 12 months or submit a request and obtain permission from the VMCE Security Team.

Once a candidate has passed an exam, he cannot take that exam again until a new major exam revision is released.
