What are Veritas certification exams like?
Each certification exam is an electronic, performance-based, multiple-choice examination that gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your mastery of critical skill sets against published objectives. Qualified invigilators at independent test centres, on Veritas’ behalf, administer the certification exams. Each exam has a predefined time allowed. Please confirm the timing allotted when registering for your exam. All exams are closed book, which means you may not have any printed material, computers or calculators with you during the exam. When you complete an exam, you will receive immediate on-screen feedback on your scoring.
Obtaining Veritas Certification
To become Veritas certified, candidates must pass the exam(s) available through Pearson VUE testing centres. To assist in preparation for the certification exams, candidates are strongly encouraged to attend Veritas training course(s), in addition to meeting any necessary prerequisites, on-the-job experience and study. Be aware that attending a training course does not guarantee passing a certification exam. See the Veritas Certification exam preparation information.

Upon successful completion of the exam, you will receive a Veritas Certificate and access to the Veritas Certified logo to use on your business cards. You will also gain:
- Industry credibility and market recognition – Skills verified by Veritas put you in an elite group of experts who are uniquely equipped with the abilities required to implement and manage Veritas solutions.
- Greater potential for career advancement – Distinguishing yourself with a Veritas Certification increases your opportunities for advancement.
