The Practical Exam for Cisco Virtual Classroom Instruction Specialist assesses the candidate’s ability to lead a virtual classroom session with live participants using the techniques and best practices of skilled virtual instructors. Candidates submit a 20-27-minute Cisco WebEx recording in which they demonstrate the skills listed in the Practical Exam Topics. The recordings receive a Pass or Fail score. Candidates must pass both the 810-501 LVCI Written Exam and the 830-505 LVCIP Practical Exam to obtain certification.
Cisco Leading Virtual Classroom Instruction (LVCI) is a live, virtual instructor-led course that develops the skills to prepare and manage a virtual classroom, effectively deliver material online, and use collaboration tools and techniques to increase student participation and comprehension. The course is appropriate for instructors in career training or academic environments, who are either new to virtual training or want to learn new skills to present engaging and impactful virtual sessions. The course consists of 17 ½ hours of live virtual instruction, ~12 hours of self-paced activities and 6 hours of participant presentations, delivered over five consecutive days. The course is presented by Cisco WebEx University instructors, who have collectively delivered over 40,000 virtual training sessions and have first-hand experience with the techniques and best practices covered in the course.
Candidates should read all of the following requirements before registering for the Practical Exam. To pass the Practical Exam, candidates must record themselves leading a virtual classroom session with live participants and demonstrating the virtual classroom instruction techniques and best practices, as listed in the Practical Exam Topics. In addition, each recording must satisfy the requirements listed below. A recording that does not meet these minimum requirements will receive a failing score.
Each recorded demonstration will be reviewed by two independent certification specialists and scored according to the list of candidate expectations (Practical Exam Topics). Each grader will assign a Pass or Fail score. In cases where the two independent graders do not agree, a third grader will review the demonstration to determine the final outcome. Candidates who do not receive a passing grade will receive a list of the areas in which they did not exhibit sufficient skill. Results will be emailed to you by Pearson VUE within 6 weeks. The length of time required to grade the exam is dependent on the schedules of the two or three graders required to review the recording. Candidates can review your official exam results and certification status anytime by logging into the Certification Tracking System using the CSCO ID number that is assigned during registration for the very first Cisco certification exam. Please use the same number for any and all subsequent exam attempts.
Only candidates that have a passing score on the written exam may register for and submit a practical demonstration recording. Candidates will register for the Practical Exam with Pearson VUE.
When you register for the Practical Exam (#830-505 LVCIP), you will be asked to upload two files; one is the recording of the virtual class session and the second file is a short questionnaire (login required), in which you describe the context of your recording. Copy this text-based LVCIP Questionnaire to your hard drive, answer the questions about your recording, save it with a new file name, and be ready to upload it during the registration process at Pearson VUE. If you have any questions about preparation of your Practical Exam demonstration recording, contact Certification Support and they can assist you.
The 830-505 LVCIP Practical Exam costs $350 USD per attempt.
