  • If a candidate does not pass the exam the second (2nd) time, the candidate must wait for a period of at least five (5) calendar days from the date of their last attempt to retake the exam a third (3rd) or any subsequent time.
  • This policy applies to both voucher-based and site-license-based Certiport centers.
  • All original vouchers must be used prior to their expiration dates, without exception.
  • Retake vouchers must be used within 60 days of the initial failed exam. If a retake was purchased, the retake voucher is sent by email after a failed exam.
  • Test results found to be in violation of this retake policy will result in the candidate not being awarded the attempted credential, regardless of score.

A valid voucher is required for each exam attempt. Do not schedule an exam past the expiration date of the voucher. If the voucher is expired, you must purchase a new voucher.
