Digital Badges, once accepted, can be shared on your social media pages like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, on electronic resumes to be shared with potential employers, and in your e-mail signature. A digital badge also offers a trusted method for real-time credential verification.

 

What are the requirements to earn the Dell EMC VMware Co-Skilled - VxRail 2017 digital badge?

 

  1. Complete the Dell EMC VxRail Application Administration and Management course
  2. Earn one of the VMware credentials below:
    1. VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization
