Recertification Paths for the CCE – V and CCP – V Certifications

If you hold the Citrix Certified Expert – Virtualization (CCE – V) or Citrix Certified Professional – Virtualization (CCP – V) certification, the only two active certifications that require multiple exams to initially attain, we have made it simple for you to recertify by taking and passing one exam.

While the certification you would like to retain is still current, (that is, prior to the expiration date of your individual certification), take and pass the most up-to-date exam associated with that certification. For example:

  • CCE – V -> take and pass the 1Y0-401 Designing Citrix XenDesktop 7.6 Solutions exam
  • CCP – V -> take and pass the 1Y0-311 Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 Advanced Administration exam
