    Programs Exam Administration

    All certificate program exams are administered electronically through Prometric testing centers.

    Please visit www.prometric.com/isa to determine what locations are close to you. Certificate program applicants must successfully complete the required course prior to taking the certificate exam. The certificate exam must be taken within three months of the last day of the certificate program course. If a certificate program applicant fails the exam, he may re-test one time within the initial six-month testing window. If an applicant does not pass the exam within the six-month window of the course and would like to receive the certificate, the applicant must register for the course and exam again and re-take both.

    Note:  The electronic version of the ISA99/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity Fundamentals Specialist certificate program exam will be available in early 2014. A paper/pencil version of the exam is available now. Please contact ISA customer service at +1 919-549-8411 or info@isa.org for more information about scheduling a paper/pencil exam.

    Certificate Programs vs. Certification Programs

    Certificate programs are typically associated with mastery of specific course content and may or may not require work experience. Certification programs are based on a job analysis identifying specific knowledge, skills, and attributes to perform a specific job and require that successful candidates demonstrate identified knowledge, skills, and attributes beyond any educational program.
