Today marks another “milestone” in my personal certification journey. Following the successful completion of the VCAP6-CMA Deploy exam ( post ), I can now call myself a VMware Certified Implementation Expert 6 - Cloud Management and Automation. Note: I’m still waiting for VMware Cert Manager and Acclaim to catch up!

It was not an unsurprising email I got last week from VMware certification services confirming what I expected but sincerely hoped wouldn’t happen. I had narrowly failed at my first attempt at the VCAP6-CMA Deploy exam (see my original post here ).

I turned up 10 minutes early like a good candidate, after being booked in and led into the exam room, the adjudicator attempted to log me in. That’s when the first problem hit. We were prompted with an unexplained error message that took ~1 hour to sort and it seems it was a problem between the PearsonVue software and my VMware Education account (something about not having the right entitlement).
