Plan the timing of your training and exam registration carefully, with these considerations:

  • You must complete the exam within 60 days of purchasing the bundle.
  • The exam is online-proctored.  To take the exam online, you need to install an app and ensure that it runs properly.  For this reason, we recommend that you register for your exam and take the exam at least 72 hours before your voucher expires.
  • If you need to change your registration, you can do so online.  Make sure to make changes prior to 24 hours before your appointment.  Changes made within 24 hours of your appointment are subject to a late-rescheduling fee.
  • Those not able to install the online proctoring app can take the exam in a Testing Center. Register as early as possible for the greatest chance of getting an appointment during your testing window.

To take the exam online, you'll need to install Sentinel Secure application. Integrated webcams in laptops are accepted.
