What About App-V Certifications?

Microsoft Application Virtualization, known as App-V, has no direct certification from Microsoft. The closest Microsoft cert is the 70-656 MDOP exam which was based on a beta of the 4.5 release of App-V and includes now outdated versions of the rest of MDOP as well.

Certified GridMasterTraining instructors offer a GridMasterTraining certification to participants that successfully complete the five day "Masters" level training class. This certificate is widely viewed as the highest level of competency of App-V in the industry.
