We Are Simplifying How You Schedule Exams
(May 13, 2019)

Nokia is simplifying its written exam scheduling and management services.  Nokia uses the Pearson VUE test delivery service to provide our candidates with global access to schedule and complete our written exams supporting the Nuage Networks Virtuoso Certifications Program (VCP).  As of July 17, 2019, candidates will be able to schedule written exams via the Student Portal.  You will no longer need two separate accounts to manage your written exam scheduling and to view your certification status.  You will be able to use your Student Portal account to complete all of your written exam and certification tracking activities from a single tool, all connected to your Nokia Extranet Portal Login profile.

The VCP Student Portal provides all of the following functionality:

  • View the current status of all of your certifications
  • Quickly see a summary of remaining requirements to achieve additional certifications
  • Confirm your recertification requirements to keep your hard earned certifications active
  • View completed written exams
  • Schedule or reschedule upcoming written exams
  • See upcoming program news from Nokia on new programs and program updates
