You are able to schedule your exam via your personalized exam scheduling link. The link is available as part of your Training Library control panel.
We recommend scheduling the exam at least three weeks before your desired exam date, especially if you plan to take the exam over a weekend.
Where to find the exam schedule link
To reach your exam scheduling link:
- Login to your Training Library account: https://portal.offensive-security.com/sign-in
- Click on the "Courses" tab at the top left of your control panel
- Select your course you wish to schedule the exam for
- Click on the "Exam" tab
- Click on the "Manage Exam" button and you will be redirected to your exam scheduling page
Note, the first time you schedule your exam in the Training Library, you might be required to provide additional information such as your timezone, address and phone number, before you reach the exam scheduling page.
How to schedule an exam
Your schedule exam link allows you to pick a date and time for your exam (in your current time zone).
The last exam date shown in red represents the expiration date of your exam attempt, in other words, the last date you will be able to schedule your exam on. It does not mean that your exam is currently scheduled.
To use your schedule exam link, click on the drop down menus for "Day" or "Month", or potentially "Year", and then select what hour you wish for your exam to begin.
When clicking the "Hour" drop down you are presented with the available times from 00:00 to 23:00, which represents the 24 hour clock. A time of 0:00 on the scheduling form is the very beginning of that day, regardless of what order it is presented in the selection.
Note: Only available times are shown. If a specific date or time is not shown, then there are no available exam seats for that date.
Once you are happy with the date and time you selected, click on the red "Schedule" button to reserve the exam seat. Within minutes, you will receive an email from our automated system containing the date and time you reserved and further information on your exam.
Should you need to you can reschedule your exam twice, up to 48 hours prior to your already selected exam date. You can see the number of exam rescheduling attempts at the bottom of your exam scheduling page.
