If you missed the announcement, the cost of certification exams is increasing effective July 1, 2011. In the U.S., the certification exam will increase from $125.00 to $150.00. It looks like the traditional discounts will still be available, but the discounted price will increase as well since it will be based upon the new prices. We have a good FAQ here (scroll down) that talks about the increase, but let me point out a few of the details that caught my eye:
- We have a Competency Exam Pack offer here that provides discounts between 20% – 30% for exam vouchers. Note that these exam packs expire September 30,2011.
- Any vouchers purchased by June 30, 2011 at the old price will be valid until their expiration date. Hint: if you know you need to take a test, buy the voucher(s) now at the current price.
- We maintain a Special Offers page here, that provides a list of the offers available.
If you are outside of the U.S. or are interested in the educational discounts, we have a pricing tool here that will help you understand how this price change will impact you.
Until next time,
