PECB Guidelines for ISO Certification Exam Candidates

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

TAKE A CERTIFICATION EXAM
Candidates will be required to arrive at least thirty (30) minutes before the beginning of the certification exam. Candidates arriving late will not be given additional time to compensate for the late arrival and may be denied entry to the exam room (if they arrive more than 5 minutes after the beginning of the exam scheduled time). A candidate that had exclusively registered for an exam (who did not follow a training course) and does not show up the day of the exam will have to register for a new exam.
All candidates will need to present a valid identity card with a picture such as a driver’s license or a government ID to the invigilator.

The duration of the exam varies according to the type of examination taken (see description of the different exams for more details at https://pecb.com/en/examination).
Additional time can be provided to candidates taking the exam in a language different than their mother tongue, when requested by the candidates on the exam day:
Foundation exam: 10 minutes
Manager exams: 20 minutes
Lead-exams: 30 minutes

There are two exam types:
1. Multiple choice “closed book” exam where the candidates are not authorized to use anything but the exam paper and a pen or,
2. Essay type “open book” exam where the candidates are only authorized to use the following reference materials:
• A copy of the standard in paper hardcopy
• Course notes from the Participant Handout
• Any personal notes made by the student during the course
• A hard copy dictionary.

The use of electronic devices, such as laptops, cell phones, etc., is not allowed.
The passing score for the exams differs.
To ensure impartiality, independent invigilators are designated to monitor the examination process and these invigilators will also ensure anonymity by assigning an identification number to each candidate’s exam.

EXAM TIPS
On the day of the exam:
1. Plan to arrive at the exam site at least 30 minutes prior to your appointment.
2. Get a good night’s rest the night before.
3. Eat a well-balanced meal prior to reporting to the exam center. Avoid excessive stimulants such as caffeine.
4. Read and follow the instructions carefully. Ask the Invigilator for clarification if you are not sure about the instructions.
5. Periodically check your progress. This will allow you to make any adjustments in time. Pay attention to the time you have left to finish the exam.
6. Only the questions you answer correctly are scored. There are no penalties for answering a question incorrectly, so answer as many questions as you can. If you are unsure of a response, eliminate as many options as possible, and choose an option from those that remain.

RECEIVE YOUR EXAM RESULTS
Results will be communicated by email in a period of 6 to 8 weeks, after taking the exam. The results will not include the exact grade of the candidate, only a mention of pass or fail.
Candidates who successfully complete the examination will be able to apply for a certified scheme which is explained in the course description.
In the case of a failure, the results will be accompanied with the list of domains in which the candidate had failed to provide guidance for exams’ retake preparation.

EXAM RETAKE POLICY
There is no limit on the number of times a candidate may retake an exam. However, there are some limitations in terms of allowed time-frame in between exam retakes, such as:
• If a candidate does not pass the exam on the first attempt, he/she must wait 15 days for the next attempt (1st retake). Retake fee applies.
Note: Students, who have completed the full training but failed the written exam, are eligible to retake the exam once for free within a 12 month period from the initial date of the exam.
• If a candidate does not pass the exam on the second attempt, he/she must wait 3 months (from the initial date of the exam) for the next attempt (2nd retake). Retake fee applies.
• If a candidate does not pass the exam on the third attempt, he/she must wait 6 months (from the initial date of the exam) for the next attempt (3rd retake). Retake fee applies.

After the fourth attempt, a waiting period of 12 months from the last session date is required, in order for candidate to sit again for the same exam. Regular fee applies.
For the candidates that fail the exam in the 2nd retake, PECB recommends to attend an official training in order to be better prepared for the exam.
To arrange exam retakes (date, time, place, costs), the candidate needs to contact the PECB partner who has initially organized the session.

EXAMINATION SECURITY
A significant component of a successful and respected professional certification credential is maintaining the security and confidentiality of the examination. PECB relies upon the ethical behaviour of certificate holders and applicants to maintain the security and confidentiality of PECB examinations. When someone who holds PECB credentials reveals information about PECB examination content, they violate the PECB Code of Ethics. PECB will take action against individuals who violate PECB Policies and the Code of Ethics. Actions taken may include permanently barring individuals from pursuing PECB credentials and revoking certifications from those who have been awarded the credential. PECB will also pursue legal action against individuals or organizations who infringe upon its copyrights, proprietary rights, and intellectual property.
