Exam and Certification

After completing the GitHub Foundations class, you will receive a voucher for your exam. This voucher allows you to schedule the exam with GitHub within 2 months. If you do not pass the exam the first time, there is a 2 week cool-down period before you can take the exam again.  

Register for a GitHub Certification exam 

When you’re prepared and ready to schedule your exam, you can register from any certification details page. During the scheduling process you can choose if you want to take the exam in a local test center or online. Each option has its benefits. Local test centers provide a secure computer environment to take your exam. With an online proctored exam, you can take your exam at almost any time using your own computer, but it requires installation of a secure browser and reliable access to the internet. Please click here for the online proctored system requirements. 

The GitHub Certification program partners with PSI to deliver certification exams in local test centers or online. PSI does not currently offer on-demand tests. Once you are registered, the first appointment offered to you will be a minimum of 24 hours from the time of booking. When you sign up for an exam, you have a 2-month window to schedule. After signing up, PSI will send you a confirmation email. If you fail to schedule within that time frame, PSI will send you a final email reminder. If you miss your scheduling window, please go through the scheduling steps again to reset it. 

Regardless of which mode you choose, you’ll need to meet specific identification requirements. 

What to expect if you take your exam at a local test center 

Local test centers provide a quiet testing environment and a computer that meets the minimum standards. When you schedule an exam at a local test center, you’ll need to arrive at the location 30 minutes ahead of time to get checked in. 

Note: In the event of a cancellation due to inclement weather, power failure, or other emergency, PSI’s candidate services team will contact you to reschedule. 

What else
should I know?

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with practical information. A week before the training, we will ask about any dietary requirements and share relevant literature if you need to prepare.

See you soon!

The GitHub Actions voucher is included in the training prince. 

The labs require access to GitHub using a personal account. Create a GitHub account before the class starts.
