How does the VCAP6-CMA Deploy count towards a VCIX6-CMA?

The VCIX6-CMA is awarded once a candidate holds both VCAP6 exams. If you hold the VCAP6-CMA Deploy certification, you need only earn the VCAP6-CMA Design certification to be awarded the VCIX6-CMA.

However, if you currently hold a previous version of the VCAP, you may upgrade to VCIX6-CMA. See your alternatives here.
