Tech Recruitment Certification Exam

I DIDN’T PASS MY EXAM! CAN I TAKE IT AGAIN?
Sure thing. The only requirement is to wait 24 hours before taking it again. A friendly word of advice is to use that time to reread the resources so you can rock it on the exam.
We allow participants take the exam up to three times. If you fail, you get locked out for 30 days. You will be dearly missed and we promise to wait for you to return after the 30-day mark.

CAN I HAVE THE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS TO MY EXAM?
Sadly, we cannot provide these as we want to give everyone an equal opportunity when taking the exam.

CAN I SAVE MY EXAM PROGRESS AND COME BACK LATER?
Nope. We cannot pause the timer and the rule is to complete the exam at one sitting.

I PASSED BUT DON’T LIKE MY SCORE! CAN I TAKE THE EXAM AGAIN?
Raw scores aren’t displayed anywhere so there’s no need! We don’t offer retakes for successful candidates at this time, but we encourage you to keep learning.

WHY OH WHY ARE THE QUESTIONS SO HARD?
Each exam question aims to verify your knowledge of tech recruitment. We are aware they are not easy, but we want to make our certification count. Topics are pulled directly from the course so if you study, you’ll pass with flying colours.

Badge & Certificates

HOW CAN I SHOW OFF MY BADGE?
Showing off your badge is more than encouraged because it represents all your hard work and your tech recruitment expertise. Here are a couple of ways to display it:

  • Add your badge to your LinkedIn profile,
  • Add your badge to your email signature,
  • Share your badge via Facebook or Twitter,
  • Add it to your website (via badge embed code or image upload).

DO YOU OFFER COMPANY CERTIFICATIONS?
At this point our certification is open to individuals only.

Certification Expiration & Renewal

WHY DOES MY CERTIFICATION COME WITH AN EXPIRY DATE?
The world of tech recruitment is changing at a rapid pace. Because the demand for skilled software developers is constantly on the rise, it’s crucial to stay up to date. We will be updating our course with new techniques and tips and you’ll need to get re-certified to demonstrate you can keep up. This is non-negotiable because we want to make this certification meaningful.
