Kiosk exam availablity and COVID-19

Jump to solution

Dear Red Hat,

We did not receive any information regarding Exam Kiosk availability while the COVID-19 and restriction around that are in place.
In my country, the Red Hat Partners where kiosk exam resides are closing the offices due to government restrictions. 
Could you please confirm that you are developing some solution which will be extending the exams expiration period for the exam until the situation will be back to normal?
Or is there any plans to attend exams from home?

I know this is a difficult time for many of us.
Please care for each other and our communities when it counts. 
Stay safe and healthy.

Please RedHat consider rescheduling another date for the ex300 EndOfLife as we planned to take this exam before it expires on August 1st 2020. So, please and due to the situation if you could postpone the end of life for this exam it would be much appreciated.

Dear Red Hat,

I have an RHEL Learning subscription (exp date: 06.30) with 5 exams. I would like to take more exams during this period, but the test centers are closed. 

Is it possible to extend this period?

best regards,

Laszlo Faczan

Second that.

I understand there's no reason to extend the RHLS, but could at least the exam vouchers (already requested and scheduled) be prolonged for 2 or 3 months (proportionally to how long testing sites are going to be closed)?

Please call or email us so we can help you. I don't want to see anyone adversely impacted by these closures.

Regards,

This is the date that was communicated officially by Redhat since however,
ive been told that if you pay the exam fees before this date, you still
have 1 year after to take the exam however, i think that they should also
consider to extend the dates for the last registration as some people
(including myself) are forced to travel in order to take this exam. Lets
hope that Redhat announces a solution that would fit all

So, we will continue selling RHEL7 EX200 and EX300 until end of September. Once you have purchased an eligibility, you have one year to use it, so you have until end of September 2021 at the latest to take the exams.
