Step 2: Do you qualify for an upgrade path?
Check the upgrade paths to see if you have any certifications listed there. If so, you may qualify for an abbreviated path to your chosen certification.
Step 3: Register or apply for the certification
Register for the certification in The Learning Center. This adds the certification to your personal record.
Step 4: Verify or complete prerequisites
Prerequisites may include a lower level certification, or a third party achievement.
Step 5: Complete recommended training (optional) and pass required exams
Training is highly recommended to pass each exam. Training is not required, but helps you develop the skills you need to pass the exam.
Once you successfully complete the required exams, the certification is awarded to you. You are notified of your pass or fail status immediately after completing the exam. If you pass the exam, your transcript is updated in The Learning Center within seven (7) business days.
Step 6: Certification achieved
You receive an email notification two to five days after successfully completing all requirements. Your status in The Learning Center changes to "acquired". Track your training and certification progress through your transcripts in The Learning Center. To view your benefits and showcase your achievement, visit the My Learning portal.
