Certification Policies


Students must not take any actions to compromise the integrity of any Extreme Networks certification exam or the program itself. Any student convicted of such compromise will be subject to penalties including up to nullification on previous certifications and a ban on all future exams.

Exam Proctoring Locations

Students may take Extreme Networks Technical Certification exams at any of our regional offices or Authorized Training Partners (ATP) locations. Please note: Extreme Networks strongly recommends students attend the applicable course prior to attempting the certification exam due to the courses and examinations being constantly revised to reflect product updates.

Extreme Networks certified instructors can also proctor examinations at the end of all training courses.

Retaking Exams

Students who fail an exam must wait at least 7 calendar days before attempting to retake the exam.

Once an exam has been passed, students must wait a minimum of 6 months before taking the exam again.
