​​Although these are online exams, they will be recorded by a secure browser extension and then reviewed later by RIPE NCC staff.

Once you click on ‘Schedule now’, you will be taken to the exam registration form. You will be asked for your name, email, and which exam you wish to take. Please make sure you have your voucher code at hand.

Please ensure that your first and last name matches your photo identity document. Your digital badge will be issued using the name used when registering. The secure browser will also carry out an identity check before starting the exam.

Make sure to read through the Practical Information page and Terms and Conditions before scheduling the exam!

Cancelling or Rescheduling an Exam

There is no need to reschedule; the exam is available immediately after registration and can be taken at any time. Once you have registered for an exam, there is no cancelling. The voucher is used, and the exam will be available until it is completed or expired and then a new voucher will be required to register again.

Using Your Vouchers

Each LIR is entitled to receive three exam vouchers for 2023, valid until 31 December 2023. A voucher consists of an alphanumeric code that you can use to schedule an exam instead of paying exam fees. Each voucher can be used only once. Please make sure you have the voucher code at hand before starting the exam scheduling process.

All LIRs can access their voucher codes through the dashboard in the RIPE NCC Academy.

Video instructions on how to claim your vouchers in the Academy are available here.

If you have any questions about your voucher codes, please contact the exams team.
