Quebec Delta Exams are available!

Servicenow Quebec release is out that opens the window for delta exam. Exam window is opened from March 26, 2021 – June 24, 2021.

Delta Exams

Delta exams are simple, short, and non-proctored MCQ-type type quiz. For every certified developer (mainline-certified NOT micro-certified) it is mandatory to take this exam within the given window. Delta exams serve the great purpose to keep developers updated with the latest and greatest knowledge of the ServiceNow latest release (Quebec for now).

Delta exams allow up to 3 retakes if one fails in the first attempt. Every next attempt requires a wait of 24 hrs. Just in case anyone fails 4 times, then it requires to retake the training from scratch to get certified again.

Why take Delta Exam?

Delta exams are mandatory for certified developers, implementation specialists, architects to maintain your mainline certifications. If we don’t take and pass the exam then our certification will get expired and no longer be valid.

I personally love the delta exams as it motivates me to read through the release notes of the latest release. Being current with the latest features and changes always help me introduce new features available to the client and to stay on top of my team. However, the frequency and price of delta exams are way to much and that I personally don’t like.

Maintenance Fee

Below is the annual maintenance fee for the bi-annual delta exams.
