VMware Certification Marketplace now open to global customers

VMware Certification Marketplace logo

In January 2013 I had an unpleasant experience with VMware Certification Marketplace. I purchased an Exam Voucher for VMware Certified Professional 5 – Desktop (VCP5-DT) exam but it was not valid for tests scheduled in the UK. When I realised my mistake, I contacted the Customer Support and asked for a refund. There is no telephone number on the web site and the only way you can contact Customer Service is via email. When I did not get any reply, I tried to send email again and even included Pearson VUE Customer Support. Eventually, after about three weeks, I received a reply from them and got the refund.

Last night I received this email from VMware Certification Marketplace:
