Exam Security

The Dell Technologies Proven Professional program uses advanced security monitoring to ensure the integrity and value of the certifications you earn.

Candidates are required to provide a digital signature and allow a photo to be taken prior to sitting for an exam. This is an important requirement to deter proxy test taking.

All exams are computer scored immediately upon exam completion. Candidates will receive a paper copy "Exam Score Report" before they depart from the exam center. This report provides a "provisional score," not a final score. The final score is transmitted to the candidate’s CertTracker account only after a statistical analysis is conducted on the exam. This analysis identifies security issues including the use on non-approved materials to prepare for the exam. If a security issue is discovered the candidate will receive an email notification stating their exam results have been invalided. All candidate exam results are typically available in their CertTracker account within three business days.

If you have questions, please contact our Education Services Help Desk.
