Book a suitable time after your virtual classroom event has finished to undertake your exam(s)

Who books my exam(s)?
You book your own exam at a date and time convenient to you. We appreciate some delegates want additional study time after the virtual classroom whereas others want to take their exams at the end of the event. This allows you to make your own decision and provides flexibility as to what works for you as an individual.
When will I receive my exam results?
For web-based exams, results are immediate, subject to final verification from the examination institute.
