The Citrix certification program offers a handful of solutions-based credentials for apps and desktops, networking and mobility.
The Citrix Certified Professional – Mobility (CCP-M) recognizes mobile designers and developers who design, install, configure and manage a Citrix XenMobile Enterprise solution. The credential addresses the unique nature of bring your own device (BYOD) issues, along with mobile device and application management, security and IT compliance requirements.
The CCP-M certification requires candidates to pass a single exam. To prepare for the certification, candidates are encouraged to take a Citrix XenMobile training course and study the exam prep guide.
With a $5,000 price tag, the recommended training course will probably be purchased by only the most serious of certification seekers (or those whose employers' training budgets extend that far). In fact, employers may be willing to cover the cost of training to help develop a highly skilled workforce on Citrix XenMobile solutions, so check with your management before signing up.
Once the Mobility certification is achieved, it remains valid for three years, and credential holders must pass the latest exam to recertify.
