No-Show Policy

Acquia has a strict no-show policy for exams. If you miss your scheduled time for an exam, you forfeit that test attempt. Since proctors monitor scheduled exams, Acquia does not provide a refund for no-shows. You must register and pay for the exam again or use a new access code for the exam. Setting up your computer to take an online exam takes some time. Acquia recommends setting up and testing your computer at least 72 hours before the exam start time. This way, if you have a technical issue that prevents you from taking your exam, you will still be able to reschedule without paying a rescheduling fee.

Requesting special accommodations for test-taking

Acquia can provide special accommodations for test-taking for those who need them.

To request a specific accommodation, create a ProctorU account, draft an email with your full name and the required accommodation, and email it to: certification@acquia.com. Any requested accommodations are added to your user account, rather than to a specific exam, so you only need to request them once.

When you take an exam, your proctor will see any accommodations they need to provide for you.

Accommodation examples

  • Speaking/reading aloud
  • Restroom breaks
  • Text-to-speech programs (we officially support: JAWS, VoiceOver for Mac, and Narrator for Windows)
  • Speech-to-text programs (extension-based applications are not supported)
  • Use of headphones, earbuds, or earplugs
  • Personal external medical devices
  • Human assistant for the exam such as a scribe or reader
  • Additional exam time
  • Food permitted
  • Screen magnifier (extension-based applications are not supported)
  • Permitted background noise

If you require an accommodation that is not on this list, contact us with details.

Registering for other users

Due to the nature of certification exams, Acquia does not allow you to sign up for others seeking to take an exam. Every exam requires the user who will be taking the exam to sign up for their own account.
