This report provides 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.

If a security issue is discovered the candidate will receive an email notification stating their exam results have been invalided. All candidate exam results are typically available in their CertTracker account within three business days.
