Please note the following before taking an exam:

  • Once you begin a certification exam, the timer starts. The exam cannot be paused, even if you close out of the page. If you close out of a test before finishing and the time limit runs out, you will see a notice that you did not pass the exam when you return to the page. You can then retake the exam after the 12-hour lock-out period.
  • There is a 12-hour lock-out period in between failed exam attempts.
  • All certifications offer unlimited attempts to take the exam until passed.
