DataStax Academy FAQ

When can I take the Developer Cassandra certification between now and 31st December 2020?

I'm planning to take the Apache Cassandra Developer Associate Certification between now and 31st December while my free certification certificate is valid.

Are there any days or time periods when I can't schedule my exam?

For example I'm assuming Christmas Day is out.

Also I'm in Australia in AEDT so wondering if the proctors are available during the daytime up to evening here?

Thanks again!

Jack Dunn

You can take it anytime you want. Proctors are available 24 hours a day, no booking necessary.

The only time you won't be able to take the exam is when the proctors are completely queued up for whatever unlikely reason.

I'll add that you should take the exam sooner rather than later and not to leave it until the last minute. We are expecting hundreds of users needing to claim their coupon before December 31 and we can't guarantee proctor availability since it's a third-party company. Cheers!
