Yes, there will be a proctored exam room available throughout the pre-conference and conference workshops in the Swan Conference Center where the Fortinet Training Institute is located.

This will be an open exam room, so partners/customers can come sit for up to two (2) written exams that are currently available through the PearsonVue testing center an no extra cost. Seating priority will go to first time exam takers. Those attempting a second exam will be provided access to any remaining available seats.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a standard 15 day waiting period between sitting for any single exam. So the second exam must be different from the first one taken. For example, if you do not pass your first attempt at an NSE 4 exam on-site, you will not be able to make a second attempt for your NSE 4 during Accelerate. 

You must bring your own laptop to run the exam.

Pre-Conference Workshop attendees will also receive a training voucher for use after Accelerate.

You will select and register for your exam at Accelerate. At registration, you must confirm that you can launch the browser locker without technical issues, that your Pearson Vue account is active, and that you are able to authenticate (you cannot create or recover your user account in the exam room).

A promo code for exam payment is provided at your exam session and only valid during Accelerate. Ensure that you have an active Pearson Vue account prior to arrival. It may take up to three days to create the account.

Because you are using your own laptop to take the exam at Accelerate, you need to download the Pearson Vue browser lock. The browser lock is a small executable that creates a secure connection to the Pearson VUE test administration system, while temporarily disabling other computer functions during your exam. Check system requirements to ensure a smooth exam experience. You will need to confirm proper functionality at the NSE Exam Registration Desk prior to registering for your exam.

All exams that are currently available at Pearson VUE are available at the event. See NSE Certification Program for more information.

Exams are administered beginning Sunday, April 2 through Wednesday, April 5 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Visit the NSE Exam Registration Desk in the Swan Conference Center when you’re ready to sit for an exam. We will be accepting registrations on a first-come-first-served basis. Priority will be given to those who are taking an exam for the first time at Accelerate.

Remember to bring valid picture ID, your laptop, and your exam registration card when registering for your exam.

Laptop check and registration will begin at 9:30 AM with the first exams starting at 10:00 AM.
