One thing I neglected to mention in my blog posting yesterday about the value of Certification is the Take it Again program that is active again this year.
Earning IBM Professional Certification is a smart career move. But many of us are nervous when taking the certification exam. Our “
Take it Again” promo can help build your confidence. If you don’t pass an exam on your first attempt, you can retake it for no additional cost. Take It Again is a voucher program, offered worldwide, by IBM Professional Certification . With Take It Again you may purchase specially priced vouchers so that in the event you do not pass an exam on your first attempt, you may quickly and easily retake the same exam for no additional costs. For further information and all the fine print... see " Take it Again" voucher promo . For all the information you will need to get certified... see my blog entry: Certification: 101 Susan Obtain your Take It Again voucher from the Prometric Take It Again Web Site . Using the voucher number, schedule and pay for your initial exam. (Note: To be eligible for the free retake, you must provide the TIA voucher number when scheduling this original testing appointment.) Take the exam. If you do not pass the exam you may register to take the same exam again using the same voucher. (Note: After taking the original exam, please wait a minimum of one day before attempting to register for the retake. This will allow time for the original test results to be entered into the system.) There is no additional charge for retaking the exam.
