General Information



AWS Digital Training

General Information

What is the GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, a new European privacy law that is enforceable after May 25, 2018. It protects European Union members’ fundamental right to privacy and the protection of personal data. It introduces robust requirements that will raise and harmonize standards for data protection, security, and compliancy.

How is AWS Training and Certification complying with GDPR?

The AWS Training and Certification team is complying with GDPR by providing a way for European Union members to request deletion of personal data and by providing users with their personal data with a description of how it is used. We will also systematically notify if an account breach occurs.

How can I request for my personal information to be deleted?

If you would like to request for your personal data to be deleted, please submit a request for account deletion here. If you have any training on your transcript, have earned any certifications, or have earned any accreditations, all of these will be deleted with your personal data. After being deleted, the data cannot be recovered. This includes your achieved certifications which means that digital badges or transcripts will no longer be able to be validated. Prior to submitting a request, we recommend that you download all your transcripts, certifications, and accreditations. If you would like to delete your personal information from Qwiklabs, the 3rd party vendor who manages our self-paced labs platform, please submit a ticket with the Qwiklabs team here.

How can I download a copy of my personal information, my training history, or certification history?

To download a copy of your personal information and training history, go to the 'my account' tab and click on 'view all personal data.' For certification and exam history, login to your Certification Account and use the 'share my transcript' button to send yourself a copy of your transcript. If you need additional assistance, please submit a request with our customer service team here.

Scheduled Exam

What should I bring to an AWS Certification exam?

You must show two forms of personal identification (ID) at the testing center. The primary form of ID must be a valid, original, hard copy (not electronic), government-issued ID containing both a photo and signature. The secondary form of ID needs to be valid and contain a signature. Acceptable forms of primary ID (name, photograph, signature, valid/current) include:
  • Government-issued Driver’s License
  • U.S. Department of State Driver’s License
  • National/State/Country Identification Card
  • Passport
  • Passport cards
  • Military ID
  • Alien registration card (Green Card or Permanent Resident Visa)
  • Note: Irish natives may use a Public Services Card as a primary form of identification in Ireland only.
    Acceptable forms of secondary ID (name, signature, valid/current) include:
  • Debit (ATM) card
  • Credit card
  • School ID
  • Any form of ID on the primary list
  • Note: In Japan, the blue colored (not pink) Health Insurance Card is an acceptable form of secondary identification. However, the paper form of the Health Insurance Card is not acceptable.)

  • You can not bring food, laptops, backpacks, notepads, or other personal equipment to the test area. For all exams, you can request a whiteboard and marker (some centers may hand out paper and pencil), which must be returned before you leave. During check in, you’ll be asked to turn out your pockets (on jackets, pants, etc.) to verify they’re empty and free of prohibited items. Eyewear will also be inspected to ensure that it’s not technology-enabled.

    I missed my exam. Can I reschedule?

    AWS will assist you in rescheduling, if you missed your exam due to a family emergency or personal health emergency on the day of your exam. You may be required to provide applicable documentation (ex: doctor’s note). If you missed an exam for any other reason outside the window for rescheduling without penalty, you schedule a new exam time following the standard process.

    Exam Scoring and Content

    Can I get a detailed report of my exam answers?

    In order to maintain the integrity of the exam, exam content is not available for review. Some high-level feedback is provided to help you understand how you scored in various sections of the exam. If you have comments or concerns about an exam question, please contact us. Candidates can also make comments on any exam question during their exams. The Subject Matter Expert (SME) committee will review all comments, concerns, and suggestions made by candidates. (Please note: AWS will not respond to questions related to specific exam content.)

    Why does it take up to 90 days (13 weeks) to get beta exam results?

    It takes time to calibrate exam results after the beta period concludes. AWS uses this time to ensure that the exam content meets our quality standards before the exam goes live. The timeline depends on the success of the beta exam.

    What is scaled scoring?

    Scaled scores are a mathematical conversion of the number of items that a candidate correctly answers so that there is a consistent scale used across all forms of an exam. A relevant example is the process of converting pounds to kilograms. The weight of the object has not changed, only the units being reported. Another common example is the conversion of Fahrenheit to Celsius degrees.

    What is an indeterminate score?

    AWS regularly monitors the performance of all exams to ensure the validity of exam results. During the monitoring of exam performance, AWS may classify scores as indeterminate when there are discrepancies for which there is no reasonable explanation. A classification of indeterminate can stem from a number of factors. In an effort to ensure valid certifications, AWS will allow candidates whose results are indeterminate the option of retaking the exam at no cost. Scores classified as indeterminate will not be considered valid and will not be eligible for certification. If it is determined that a breach of the Candidate Conduct Policy has contributed to the classification of indeterminate, AWS will also take additional action as laid out in the Candidate Agreement. AWS reserves the right to ask you to re-test if there is any suspicion of fraudulent or aberrant exam scores. Retesting will take place at a facility of our choosing at a mutually agreeable time.


    How can I pay for my exam?

    Our test delivery vendors accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and JCB cards for payment.

    Are taxes included in my exam fee?

    For countries that have implemented a Value Added Tax (VAT), customers will be charged the applicable rate as determined by their country.

    How can I generate a receipt?

    To generate a receipt, sign into your AWS Certification Account and access the test delivery vendor page you scheduled with by using the Manage Exam buttons on the right.
    If you selected Manage PSI Exams, click View Details beside the scheduled exam to find the Print Receipt button. For previously completed exams, scroll to the bottom of the page, click View Details beside the scheduled exam to find the Print Receipt button.
    If you selected Manage Pearson VUE Exams, click the My Receipts link in the My Account table.

    Can I get an exam discount?

    AWS does not provide general discounts or free certification exams. Certificate holders are eligible for a discount off their next or recertification exam as a benefit. See certified benefits here.

    How can I purchase exams in bulk?

    AWS Certification exam vouchers can be purchased online anytime here.
