VMware requires all students who attend VMware training must have passed a background check prior to attending training. This step is to ensure compliance with US laws and regulations on the export/re-export of products, services, or technical data. The compliance regulates that VMware products, services, and technical data must not:
- Travel to countries subject to US embargoes or trade sanctions.
- Be obtained by any entity of an individual, whether in the US or abroad, specified on US government "exclusion" lists.
- Be used, directly or indirectly in the design, development, or fabrication of nuclear, chemical, biological weapons or missile technology.
All students attending a VMware course must be registered through VMware's myLearn system where a trade compliance check will occur. Students must be approved and validated before the attending the course. If a student is denied, they will be asked to leave the classroom immediately per the export trade compliance requirement.
Questions regarding the results of the compliance check should be directed to the VMware Export Compliance Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
