Citrix CCEE and CCIA Requirements in a Nutshell

I occasional receive an email asking about the CCEE (Citrix Certified Enterprise Engineer) and the biggie, CCIA (Citrix Certified Integration Architect) requirements, although the person has already visited Citrix Education's site. I don't think I do any better explaining it, but in a nutshell here is how to get CCEE and CCIA certified:

To obtain CCEE, you must pass:

  • The 1Y0-A20 XenApp 6.5 Administration exam (note that in most languages, the 6.0 is retired, but not all.)
  • The 1Y0-A26 XenServer 6.0 Administration exam.
  • The 1Y0-A19 XenDesktop 5 Administration exam.
  • The 1Y0-A22 XenApp Advanced Administration exam.
  • The 1Y0-A25 Engineering a Citrix Virtualization Solution (available soon, according to Citrix Education.)

To obtain CCIA:

  • Pass all of the CCEE exams (above).
  • Citrix Education recommends you have "extensive field experience related to architecting Citrix virtualization-based solutions".
  • Pass the 1Y0-A16 Architecting a Citrix Virtualization Solution exam.
  • Agree to the CCIA for Virtualization program agreement in Certification Manager.
  • Fill out a online profile questionnaire in Certification Manager.

If I have any of that wrong please contact me. If you have any questions about it, please contact Citrix Education

    I just took my XenApp 6.0 exam in November. I already have to retest if seeking CCEE?

    Hmm, maybe not:

    From your link: “The following are recent and upcoming training, exam and certification discontinuations. The certifications are no longer attainable, but remain valid for certification purposes until further notice.”

    Ah verbiage. It could go either way. Any clarification would be great.
