Important note: Each exam purchase entitles you to one exam (first attempt) and one re-take (second attempt) if you do not pass the first attempt. Prior to accessing the re-take, we recommend you study any topics identified in your first attempt exam results. If you do not pass either the first or second attempt, you must purchase two more attempts. Exams passed outside of these purchase and re-take rules will not result in the issuing of a digital badge. If you have any questions regarding the completion of any of your exam attempts, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to verify your results.
