I think there are quite a few of us in this situation. I dont see any reason why exam vouchers cannot be extended.

There is a massive amount of people affected.  All planned classes are moving into a virtual experience, but all exams should be postponed until further notice.
Due to this situation, I would feel bad if RH would not extend our kiosk exams too.

I expect positive closure of this matter.

Greetings,

I like the way Microsoft and Linux Foundation are doing it from home online. I guess Red Hat have to reconsider this possibility and think what us customers and end users would like to have as well as the industry.  the Kiosk issue is getting worst with COVID-19, I have to travel outside the country or to another city. time slots are not enough in Saudi unless you book 2-3 months in advance and the KIOSK is not down. now with self isolation and quarantine and restricted travel I see several issues as already pointed out earlier.  looking forward to a postive change. Corona is forcing us to make some technical and social changes in our life, lets learn from it.

I am in the same situation. Exam vouchers are expiring end of April, and I can't schedule my exams.... Looking forward to a solution, for example extending the exam voucher duration...

Greetings All,

just to let you know AWS have opted for online exams as Microsoft is already doing, here is thier FAQ https://aws.amazon.com/certification/faqs/?fbclid=IwAR147Ri9lvQqOthWoZaAPW-vLXWCZvXWg01gf0XqFPp9m5br...

I am hoping Red Hat follows something similar for us thier customers.

Hi Walid - I can’t speak for AWS or Microsoft, but as you may know, 100% of our exams are proctored and performance-based. We hold ourselves to a very high standard when it comes to our certification program. We want to make sure that anyone who possesses one of our credentials deserves it.

I’m not in a position to announce anything just yet, but I will say that we are working on new ways of delivering exams to address market needs during this time; ways that address exam availability without compromising the integrity of the program.
