Exam Tutorial - This tutorial provides a step-by-step detailed explanation of how to take the online exam and is a helpful resource to check out before you start your exam.

We recommend you take a few minutes to go through the exam tutorial before you take your actual exam.
Exam FAQ - Here, you can find useful information regarding commonly asked questions such as why pop-up blockers need to be turned off, or whether the exam can still be taken if there’s a firewall on the network.
