Exam Preparation Checklist
SkillCred Exam Preparation Checklist
Candidates should use the exam checklist to review and complete the steps necessary to take the exam. When items in the checklist have been completed, a green check mark will appear next to the item.
Please Note: The "Take Exam" Button will become active, and the Candidate will be able to proceed to take an exam, only after they complete the first 3 checklist items:
- Agree to Global Candidate Agreement
- Verify Name
- Select Platform (for SkillCred exams this defaults to no platform required)
Before the candidate takes the exam, they must click on the "Verify Now" link to ensure that the First and Last Name listed on their Linux Foundation ID account matches the government-issued photo ID that will be uploaded to the automated proctoring system. This will be the same name printed on your certificate, should you pass the exam.
- Click within the field to edit the First or Last name displayed.
- Click “Accept” to confirm.
Your Verified Name can not be changed once you launch the exam - so the candidate should review their verified name BEFORE they click "Take Exam" and ensure it matches their Primary ID.
The completed form must be submitted at least two (2) weeks before the candidate plans to take an exam.
PLEASE DO NOT SCHEDULE YOUR EXAM IF TEST ACCOMMODATIONS ARE BEING REQUESTED
