I'm from Sri Lanka we have only one Pearson Vue exam centre. certified in cybersecurity free exam Voucher is only valid on this year . there are no dates to book this year, all are booked. i think Online testing with OnVUE is the best thing.
The code to use to take your CC exam for free can be found here https://my.isc2.org/s/Candidate-Benefits/1MCC-exam-instructions
Please note that this page is only accessible if you are registered as an (ISC)² Candidate and that you may only use this code for one free exam attempt. If you're not an (ISC)² Candidate, it's free for the first year and you can sign-up here https://my.isc2.org/s/Candidate-Application-Form
Should you use the (ISC)² Candidate code for one free CC exam attempt and need to take it again, the cost at that point will be the full U.S. $199.
That is unfortunate that candidates have to pay the full price, I would of loved to have given it another go but honestly at this point I am struggling financially, I already had to spend $50 due to having unforeseen circumstances happen during my original exam date of November and had to re-schedule. It’s erroneous that you won’t work with your candidates in situations like mine, be it that I called a day after booking my appointment not seeing the $50 cost and asking for an exception only to speak to a rude member support rep saying that it’s not her problem.
I feel ISC needs to look at their retake policies and reschedule policies , I cannot imagine the feeling of sitting for my CISSP and possibly being out $1400, there are so many other exams that are just as credible as yours that offer discounts on retakes and do not charge to reschedule .
That said, it’s wonderful you are giving out free vouchers for this exam, but honestly the material provided didn’t match anything on the exam and I felt underprepared going to sit for my exam in the first place, but I took the exam under the impression I could retake again.
That said, it seems like it would be better for a candidate to buy the training bundle with two vouchers for $199 instead of the retake! As for me I will be pursuing other certifications
One last thought, failing any exam is already demeaning enough. Sure having to pay a full price of an exam may give that extra push to study harder, but we all know that sometimes things happen. It’s truly unfortunate that you can’t give test takers a break!
Isn’t the Goal of ISC giving away one-million free vouchers to candidates to help bring an end to the shortage in the industry? That is what you are promoting, I do not see how charging ridiculous prices helps with this!
is it free in 2023?
yes, the 2023 promo code is online now.
Yes, the 2023 promo code is online now. You input it during the Pearson Vue checkout.
The exam was nothing like the online course, many new terminology and scenarios. I unfortunately didn't pass either by one section.
I think Online testing with OnVUE is the best thing.
Many people agree that online testing would be highly convenient. So much so that it was trialed earlier this year. Unfortunately, the less ethical amongst us quickly demonstrated why it is not the "best thing".
We did test online exams this year (and last year). They were not secure enough for our purposes -
