Exciting Changes to Our Exam Delivery Process Starting October!

We're excited to announce an upcoming improvement to our certification program! Effective 14 October 2024, we'll be transitioning to Certiverse for exam delivery. This brings a shift to a fully online proctored exam format, which is part of our ongoing efforts to improve your testing experience and streamline our certification process.

Here's why you'll love taking your exam online:
  • Convenience: Take your exam, including translated exam, from the comfort and familiarity of your own space. No need to travel to a testing center, saving you valuable time and reducing pre-exam stress.
  • Flexibility: Schedule your exam at a time that works best for you within the designated testing window.
  • Security: Online proctoring ensures the integrity of the exam, providing peace of mind for both you and the program.
  • Multilingual support: The chat support will be available in English, Spanish, Japanese and Simplified Chinese during your online exam.
Key Dates and Actions:

A. The proctor will pause the exam first before making any termination decisions. You will be asked to remain focused on the screen and tell your family member to leave your testing area. The proctor will resume the exam after your family member leaves the room. Please note that the pausing only keeps you from working on the exam but does not pause the timer.

A. Yes, Certiverse offers automatic language accommodation to those who are eligible. Please note that language accommodations will be granted only if the exam is not available in your native language in your country of residence.

For example, if you live in Spain and you want to

  • Take the Developer exam in English, the extra 30 mins will NOT be granted because the Developer exam is available in Spanish.
  • Take the Professional Developer exam, the extra 30 mins will be granted because the Professional Developer is not available in Spanish.

For Spanish this applies if you live in one of the following countries:


The same rule applies if you live in Japan (for exams in Japanese) and China (for exams in Simplified Chinese).

Any candidate found to be deliberately abusing automatic accommodations will have their certification revoked without refund and will not be permitted to sit further exams.
