Get certified!

Systems hardware and software certification exams will be offered at the special event rate of USD 100 per exam, up to a 50% discount over the testing center price. A complete listing of available IBM tests is available at the testing lab.

Certification tests are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and by appointment only. Tests are payable on site at the time of testing, using Visa, Master Card or American Express, which the test taker enters directly into the testing tool.

Some vouchers are accepted as payment for exams (for example, PGI/Specialty test vouchers, and IBM employee vouchers), but vouchers are not guaranteed to be accepted.

Potential test takers should prepare for their test(s) prior to the conference.

There you'll find test descriptions, including:

  • Certification job role names and descriptions to which the tests apply.
  • Test objectives measured on the tests.
  • Recommended educational resources.
  • Assessment and sample tests to help gauge your readiness for the actual exam.
  • Estimated time required to take the test.

Important notes on certification testing:

The same test may be taken by an individual only twice in a 30-day period. Both attempts may be taken at this event. For each test, test takers are required to sign a confidentiality agreement, show their conference badge and one government issued ID with a recent photo (for example: passport, national ID, or driver license). All tests are closed-book containing multiple-choice questions. They are delivered in a proctored environment via a web-based tool.

Candidates should ensure they have a valid web account with Pearson Vue. While a testing ID is important, it is not needed to log in to take the exam. Candidates will need the user name and password for their Pearson Vue web account to log in to take their exam.
