Citrix re-certification and Partner Cloud Certification options 2018

Citrix are currently running four separate re-certification programmes for customers and partners in 2018.

1. Any valid Citrix certification holder

Candidates who have any valid (non-expired) Citrix certification can renew their certification for a further three years by virtue of completing one of the following courses:

Citrix Recertification 2018

2. Any Citrix Xenapp 6.5 certification holder

Any Citrix XenApp 6.5 certification holder can update their certification to Citrix CCA-V for XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x via attendance of the CXD2102 “XenApp and XenDesktop Administration” course before the end of December 2018. After this time, candidates will be required to sit the CCA-V exam.

3. CCA-N, CCP-N and CCE-N Certification

For a limited time, customers with a current Citrix Certified Professional-Networking certification (CCP-N) will have the option of attending the CNS-320: Citrix ADC 12.x Advanced Concepts - Security, Management and Optimization  instructor-led training to obtain the Citrix Certified Associate-Networking (CCA-N) and re-certify their CCP-N. In addition, customers with a current CCP-N also have the option to attend the CNS-420: Citrix Networking Assessment, Design, and Advanced Configuration  instructor-led training to receive their full stack of Networking certifications (CCA-N, CCP-N AND CCE-N) without having to take an exam. Customers will need to attend either the CNS-320 or the CNS-420 by December 31, 2018 in order to be eligible.

Please note that after 2018, anyone with a CCP-N who does not have the CCA-N will need to obtain their CCA-N separately by passing an exam. For this reason, we recommend any CCP-N holders who do not currently have a CCA-N take advantage of this offer.
