Exam Security

The EMC Proven Professional program uses advanced security measures to ensure the integrity and value of the certifications you earn.

Candidates provide a digital signature and have a photo taken prior to sitting for an exam to deter proxy test taking.

Exams are scored by computer. Candidates receive a paper copy "Provisional Exam Score Report" from the exam center. This report lists a "provisional score," not a final score. The final score is transmitted to the candidate’s CertTracker account only after a statistical analysis is conducted on the exam. This analysis identifies individuals who have used illegal preparation materials to pass an exam. These candidates receive an email notice that their exam results are considered invalid. All other candidates can view their final score in their CertTracker account within three business days.

If you have questions, please contact Education@emc.com
