PCAP-NP-31-02: Testing Policies
COVID-19 Update: Most testing centers around the world have suspended their operations or are operating at limited or changed capacity due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.
In response to the multiple requests from teachers, instructors, students, professionals, and test candidates from all over the world we have made a decision to enable test candidates to take the associate-level exam (PCAP-NP-31-02) online and attempt the qualification PCAP – Certified Associate in Python Programming from the comfort of their homes, without risking exposure to COVID-19.
Health and safety of test candidates is our top priority. Therefore, the PCAP – Certified Associate in Python Programming certification program will be temporarily available through OpenEDG Testing Service online delivery channel (from April 10, 2020 to July 31, 2020 with possibility of extension.)
