Timing your Badge

If you’re earning the badge to extend a Certification, plan carefully with these considerations:

  • Following the recommended course, you can take the assessment to earn the badge immediately, or you can choose to wait, and earn the badge only when you need it to extend a related Certification.
  • Earning a badge will extend any related Certifications by 24 months from the badge earned date, providing you earn it before the Suspension Date of your Certifications.
  • You can still earn a badge during the 90-day Suspension period. If you earn a badge during the Suspension period, your badge will extend your Certification by 24 months from the Certification Suspension Date.
  • Your badge will extend only the related Certifications you already hold. Earning a badge before earning a Certification will have no effect on the Certification.

Schedule your exam

Schedule and pay for your exam from the Certification Portal using a credit card or a voucher. During scheduling, you will have the option to choose to take the exam online or at a testing center.

Atlassian will work with individuals with documented disabilities to provide reasonable and appropriate access to our exams. To request special exam accommodations, please submit a ticket at least 2 weeks before your exam appointment at our Service Desk.

Prepare your environment for the exam

  • Review the Online Proctored Exam Setup Guide again.
