In the 1980s, a 19-year-old pre-med student at the University of Texas just happened to like computers – a lot. Michael Dell never made it to graduation and dropped out at the end of his first year to pursue a different dream, armed only with a $1,000 stake from his family and a love of PCs. No one could have predicted that Dell would turn his dorm room “business” into Dell Inc., a globally recognized leader in computing.
Dell merged with EMC Corporation in late 2016, and the new company was rebranded as Dell Technologies, which includes Dell, Dell EMC, Pivotal, RSA, Secureworks, Virtustream and VMware. According to Forbes, Dell Technologies (before completion of the merger with EMC) was the fourth largest privately held company in the United States and the world’s largest privately held technology company. With offices in more than 180 countries worldwide, Dell boasts more than 145,000 employees, with sales exceeding $74 billion in 2016. According to its investor relations website, a whopping 98% of all Fortune 500 companies use Dell Technologies products and services. Dell is also well represented in Gartner Magic Quadrant leader lists for products and services, including the Data Center Backup and Recovery Software, Managed Security Services, and Integrated Systems lists.
Computing products remain a staple in the Dell product portfolio. Consumers interested in laptops, workstations, tablets and desktops will find a variety of products available (along with peripherals such as monitors, printers and VDI appliances) to meet personal, SMB, enterprise or gaming requirements. Dell also offers solutions for networks, storage, servers, gateways and embedded computing, as well as a broad range of IT and business services.
Dell Technologies’ products and services currently fall under seven technology brands:
Within each brand, there are multiple products, services and solutions that cater to specific areas of interest for Dell customers.
VMware, Secureworks and Pivotal continue to strategically align with Dell Technologies’ core business areas. VMware continues to provide hybrid cloud, mobile computing and software-defined data center solutions. Pivotal offers analytic tools, next-generation software development methodology and modern cloud-native platforms, while Secureworks focuses on incident response and threat intelligence security. RSA helps companies manage and monitor their digital risk profiles and activities.
In response to its merger with EMC, Dell and Dell EMC’s certification programs have merged into the unified Dell EMC Proven Professional certification portfolio. You’ll find that the website and certifications have a brand-new look and feel. Dell Education Services offers two CompTIA certs along with numerous Dell EMC certifications divided up by technology category or track, including Storage, Data Protection, Converged Infrastructure and Data Science. A accurate search of the Dell certification website finds that Dell no longer offers Microsoft certification training courses.
If you’re not sure where to start on your certification journey, the new Dell EMC Proven Professional certification framework is a great starting point. Here, you’ll find certifications for four skill levels:
The certification framework is hierarchical: The specialist certification takes the lower-level associate credential as a prerequisite, while the expert-level credentials take both the associate and specialist credentials as prerequisites. Associate and specialist certifications do not expire. Master and expert certifications expire after two years.
In Dell’s certification framework, you’ll find Dell EMC credentials across eight different tracks: Technology Architect (TA), Cloud Architect (CA), Enterprise Architect (EA), Implementation Engineer (IE), Systems Administrator (SA), Platform Engineer (PE), Technical Support Engineer (TSE) and Data Scientist (DS). The certification framework also maps credentials back to specific technology areas (cloud, storage, data protection, server, networking, converged infrastructure and data science).
There are also certification maps for role-based credentials:
Certification candidates should register with Dell EMC TechDirect. From the TechDirect portal, candidates can access free exam prep materials, schedule exams, view exam results and print their certification transcripts. Candidates may also view their company’s competency status through the TechDirect portal.
Dell Partners whose employees have earned the Certified Deployment Professional badge may be eligible to earn the Services Competency for Deployment (or simply Deployment Competency) designation. To earn this competency, Partners must be at least at the Gold tier level and have two or more employees who’ve passed the associated exam. A formal application must be submitted to Dell requesting Deployment Competency designation. Deployment Competency designations are available for Server, Storage, Networking and Client Systems.
Because Dell has updated its certification portfolio, it’s well worth your time to peruse the new Dell EMC Proven Professional Certification Framework to understand the new certification flow. All certification tracks begin with selecting a technology concentration: Cloud, Storage, Data Protection, Server, Networking, Converged Infrastructure or Data Science. Next, candidates earn the DECA (associate) credential recommended for their technology track. From there, candidates select the applicable role-based certification roadmap (Plan and Design, Deploy, Manage, or Support) and follow the certification recommendations to earn the specialist, expert and master credentials available in that certification path.
Below, we’ve listed some examples of the many certifications you’ll find in the new Dell EMC program. We’ve chosen to present these certification examples by the available technology tracks.
The Server technology roadmap is the only certification path where a third-party certification, the CompTIA Server+, serves as the associate-level credential.
On top of its Certified Deployment Professional certifications, Dell Education Services has partnered with several third-party organizations in the past to provide certifications for CompTIA and Microsoft certifications. However, Dell has reduced the number of CompTIA cert courses that it offers and totally eliminated its Microsoft cert courses.
CompTIA is a well-known, vendor-neutral certification provider. Dell has reduced its CompTIA certification training courses to just two online offerings: A+ and Linux+ certs. The cost for CompTIA training courses ranges from $550 to $650 for these topics.
According to Dell, 78% of all companies use IT deployment services. With such a widespread need, IT professionals specializing in deployment find a demand for their skills across multiple industry sectors. Some of the sectors that Dell serves are education, energy, financial services, government (federal, state and local), healthcare, manufacturing, retail, telecommunications, media and entertainment, and web development.
Popular job boards such as TechCareers, SimplyHired and Glassdoor reveal numerous jobs available for Dell-certified deployment professionals. Most of the listed positions focus on engineering roles for server, virtualization, networking, systems, integration, data security and the like. Other available roles include consultants, account executives, system administrators, IT managers and deployment managers.
Dell recommends and offers core training courses for each of its Dell EMC credentials. Interested candidates who register on the DirectTech website can also access free exam study guides. In addition, Dell offers many free e-learning courses at the foundation level on various Dell products and technologies, including networking, storage, data protection, big data and converged infrastructure.
Core recommended training for each solution track includes a basic, intermediate and advanced course. Prices vary, but candidates can expect to pay $2,500 to $5,000. Most training is a combination of e-learning activities that you complete prior to attending instructor-led training.
Dell also provides training for other certifications and training opportunities for end users and IT professionals in various disciplines, including these:
Fundamental or introductory courses typically cost $100 to $200, while advanced training courses may cost thousands of dollars (we found one course with a price tag of $10,000). Dell also offers onsite training courses, with most prices running at least double that of public courses. The most expensive onsite course we found topped $42,000.

Layoffs have spread from sales to engineering at Dell Technologies as the company announced thousands of cuts on Monday as part of an overall 5-percent workforce reducdtion.
As the announced Dell Technologies layoffs go forward, more of those affected appear to be in technical roles, with personnel in engineering, product and sales posting farewells to LinkedIn.
“After nearly 17 years at EMC/Dell Technologies, yesterday was my last. It‘s been a crazy ride, and there are far too many people to express my appreciation for who have helped me, mentored me and made this time full of wonderful memories,” wrote former Senior System Engineer Data Protection Solutions at Dell Technologies Chris Beischer.

He was responsible for requirements gathering, services scoping and solution proposal development. Dell also laid off an inside product specialist with two years of experience supporting sales.
“I unfortunately was a part of the 5 percent workforce reduction,” wrote Tobey Weder. “While this was very shocking and unexpected news to me, I appreciate all the experiences and wonderful people that I got to know while working at Dell.”
Dell told CRN on Monday night it would have no further comment on the staff reductions.
Dell Technologies Co-Chief Operating Officer Jeff Clarke wrote about the firings in a memo on Monday. He said while the organization tried to pause hiring, reduce travel and eliminate expenses, those methods failed to turn back losses.
“The steps we’ve taken to stay ahead of downturn impacts, which enabled several strong quarters in a row, are no longer enough,” said Jeff Clarke, vice chairman and co-COO of Dell Technologies, in a letter to employees Monday announcing the layoffs. “We now have to make additional decisions to prepare for the road ahead.”
Dell’s cuts hit 5 percent of the 133,000 person workforce or an estimated 6,650 employees, as Dell succumbed to the pressure of decreased PC demand, with IDC reporting that PC orders at the Round Rock, Texas, company were down 37 percent in the fourth quarter. In additon to the cuts there was a reorganization of key sales leaders.
Also let go was a senior manager of channel sales, Megan Bergman, who spent more than a decade building a career with Dell from enterprise solutions specialist to senior manager.
“After 11 years it‘s time to turn in my Dell badge. I am so thankful for the opportunity to meet so many amazing customers, partners and co-workers who I will always call friends. I love our Tech Community and excited to find a new way to contribute with my ideas and experience,” wrote the departing channel executive.
Geographically, the cuts were widespread with personnel in Colorado, California, Oklahoma, Texas, and Connecticut being eliminated. One of them included a solutions architect focused on the high-value areas of hyber converged infrastructure, HCI, and Dell’s top selling PowerFlex and VxRail products.
“I got the news that my employment ends this Friday due to today’s resource action, and I’m leaving on good terms,” wrote Paul Braren, who spent three years at Dell. “My evaluations have been excellent, and my performance has been well beyond all quotas for several quarters. This is my first layoff in over 30 years in IT. I know I‘m truly blessed to have had the opportunity to also work at amazing companies like IBM and VMware.”
