Prepare for the Exam
Candidates are not required to attend videoconference training of any kind prior to attempting the exam. Should they wish to do so, we recommended the following courses:
- Polycom Fundamentals (FSIT201) eLearning modules which cover networking models, standards and protocols and are approximately two hours in duration.
- Polycom System Administration (PLCMISFAT202) eLearning modules which cover the basic skills and knowledge required to manage and operate the core RealPresence Clariti collaboration infrastructure components.
- Collaboration Installation, Configuration, & Troubleshooting – Part 1 (RPIIT202/PCICT201): A five-day classroom training covering deployment and configuration of a basic Clariti solution.
Candidates should be very familiar with the material when preparing for the exam.
The PCVE exam questions are based on the following RealPresence software versions:
- Polycom® RealPresence® Collaboration Server v8.8
- Polycom® RealPresence® Resource Manager v10.5
- Polycom® RealPresence® Distributed Media Application™ (DMA®) v10.0.0.3 Core and Edge
- Polycom® RealPresence® Access Director™ 4.2
- Enterprise Video Capture
- Polycom® RealPresence® Web Suite 2.2
You will have 90 minutes to answer 80 questions. The exam questions are broken down into 4 sections as follows. A score of 70% or higher is required to pass the exam.
