  • The Certified Engineer Program (CEP) distinguishes and recognizes engineers skilled in the integration of Aveva™ Vijeo Citect™ based automation projects. At the heart of the CEP are the Vijeo Citect Certified Engineer (VCCE) exams, which provide a means of testing experienced system engineers. They encompass tests on Vijeo Citect knowledge as well as a range of related topics such as PLC communications, Microsoft® Windows operating systems and networking.

    Each exam consists of 30 to 60 multiple-choice questions, depending on which exam is being taken. The exams each have a 1 to 1 ½ hour time limit, depending on the number of questions. The pass mark is set at 70% for all exams.
