Certification Questions

What certifications does 8x8 offer?

8x8 offers six certifications – three tracks for each product:

  • Administrator Certified: Virtual Office, Virtual Contact Center
  • Deployment Certified: Virtual Office, Virtual Contact Center
  • Support Certified: Virtual Office, Virtual Contact Center

Candidates may seek one, several, or all six certifications.

What is the minimum requirement to become certified?
  • Certified Administrator: Pass the Certified Administrator exam (Virtual Office or Virtual Contact Center)
  • Deployment Certified: Achieve Certified Administrator (Virtual Office or Virtual Contact Center), complete Deployment Process training, and complete customer shadowing
  • Support Certification: Achieve Certified Administrator (Virtual Office or Virtual Contact Center), complete Support Process training, and pass Support Certification exam
Is training mandatory?

The only requirement for Admin Certification is to pass the Admin Certification exam for Virtual Office or Virtual Contact Center; however we recommend that candidates new to 8x8 complete training first. Deployment Process and Support Process training is mandatory, if seeking those certifications.

Can certification be transferred?

8x8 Certification belongs to the individual who earns it, even if that person changes job roles or employer. Certification cannot be transferred to other individuals within a company.
