At the Linux Foundation, we take great pride in the content we develop for our training courses and certification exams. We have worked hard to create challenging and fair exams that allow candidates to demonstrate what they can do. Keeping the exam content and environment secure is critical to providing a fair attempt for all who wish to become certified and all those who already are certified.
As our Certifications have grown in awareness and stature we have unfortunately had to sanction an increasing number of candidates for engaging in Exam Misconduct (i.e. attempting to cheat or use illegal and inappropriate resources to take and pass our exams).
The Linux Foundation has a zero tolerance rule in regard to anyone who engages in Exam Misconduct. Our exams are administered under strict supervision and exam rules, and are carefully monitored during the live exam, and upon completion of the exam, the session recording is reviewed.
Any suspicious activity will be addressed and will result in consequences including, but not limited to, revoking a passing score and restricting an individual’s ability to take an exam again.
If you have observed a possible testing violation or any suspicious behavior, please alert us by completing this form (which can be submitted anonymously).
