Dell EMC Proven Professional Certification Program

Dell EMC is excited to offer a more comprehensive training and certification portfolio to our audiences. Our combined businesses allow us to bring “better together” solutions and deliver training and certification across the full IT ecosystem — from core to cloud. This combination unites best-in-class services and expertise to help our audiences succeed and transform for the future. However, until our systems have been fully integrated, we’ll continue to present certification and exam information in the manner you’re accustomed to.


Online Proctored (OP)

Now you can take ALL of our proctored exams in the comfort of your home or office with our Online Proctored examination option. Look for the Online Proctored booking method at the time of exam registration. Currently, the Online Proctored option is available in all countries except in Japan and is recommended only for exams taken in the English language. Find out more about online proctored exams.

CertTracker / Pearson VUE Account Alignment

For those who have an existing CertTracker account, please note: to avoid duplicate CertTracker accounts from being created, and ensure proper credit for credentials earned, you will need your legal name and your primary email address to match exactly in both Pearson VUE and CertTracker before you sit for your exam.

Exam Security

The Dell EMC Proven Professional program uses advanced security monitoring to ensure the integrity and value of the certifications you earn.

Candidates are required to provide a digital signature and allow a photo to be taken prior to sitting for an exam. This is an important requirement to deter proxy test taking.

All exams are computer scored immediately upon exam completion. Candidates will receive a paper copy "Exam Score Report" before they depart from the exam center. This report provides a "provisional score," not a final score. The final score is transmitted to the candidate’s CertTracker account only after a statistical analysis is conducted on the exam. This analysis identifies security issues including the use on non-approved materials to prepare for the exam. If a security issue is discovered the candidate will receive an email notification stating their exam results have been invalided. All candidate exam results are typically available in their CertTracker account within three business days.
