If you experience internet or video issues during the pre-check process, your video feed may not be transmitted to the CSA, even if you still see yourself in the video window. The CSA will work with you to correct the issue.

Beta exam process

As part of a new exam development process, we must gather data on the exam to determine how well it is performing. We accomplish this by first releasing a beta version of the exam. The process of attempting a beta exam is slightly different from live, production exams. Please note some key differences:

  • You will not receive a score report or test results email immediately after taking your beta exam.
  • Beta exams do not yet have a passing score set.
  • The passing score is set after the results of all the beta exams are analyzed.
  • You will receive your score results after the beta exam period closes, usually 4-6 weeks after completing your exam.
  • Beta exams have more questions than production exams. For Associate-level exams, the beta exam is approximately 50 questions. For all other exams, the beta exams are approximately 100 questions.
  • You are allowed more time to complete beta exams (60 minutes for Associate-level exams, 120 minutes for all other exams).
  • Some exam questions are discarded based on an analysis of the beta exam results. Discarded questions do not count towards your final score.
  • You may attempt a beta exam only once. If you do not pass, you will be able to attempt the production version of the exam.
  • A comment box is available for each question on the beta exam. Please use it to provide feedback on errors, inconsistencies, or other issues you notice on the beta exam.

Test results email

After completing and submitting your exam in Webassessor, you will receive an email from Kryterion with your exam results. The results will include the following:

  • Name of the exam/assessment
  • Date Completed
  • Total score (percent)
  • Result (Pass/Fail)
  • Percent Correct by Exam Topic

If you passed, you will be able to accept your badge in Credly 24 hours after receiving the Test Results email. You will receive an additional email from Credly when the badge is available for you to accept.

Reattempting failed exams

  • If you pass, you may not attempt the same exam again.
  • You may attempt a Beta exam only one time.
  • If you fail a Production exam, you may reattempt the same exam within these guidelines:
  • If you fail your first attempt, you must wait 5 days to attempt an exam a second time.
  • If you fail your second attempt, you must wait 10 days to attempt an exam a third time.
  • If you fail your third attempt, you must wait 30 days for each subsequent attempt.
  • Infor reserves the right to disallow any reattempts of the same exam at any time.

Exam scoring policy

Infor does not share passing score thresholds for our certification exams. Exam passing scores are ascertained through quantitative data analysis based on the exam’s ongoing performance. As such, passing scores for each exam are set independently, subject to review, and may vary from exam to exam.

Infor Certification badges

Credly

Infor uses the digital badging platform, Credly, to administer and deliver your digital badges. Credly provides robust badging options for you to showcase your Infor knowledge and skills mastered through formal and informal learning.

You can share individual badges through social media and share a link to your Credly profile with an Infor email signature.

How to access your badges

Create a Credly account using the instructions provided here, or click the link sent to you from Credly. Sign-in to Credly with the credentials you’ve created. After signing-in, you will see your badge(s) in the Credly platform. Accept your badge and start sharing! For additional how to tutorials, use the following links:

Maintaining certification status

To maintain your current certification status, you must have passed all required exams. You will be notified via email if/when any of the exams you have attempted will be suspended or expired. You must ensure you register, pay for, and pass the replacement/equivalent exam before the suspended or expired exam is discontinued. If an exam is discontinued and you do not pass the replacement/equivalent exam, you will lose your certification status.

Infor does not grant certification status exemptions to candidates with legacy certification status. The only way to achieve your certification status is by passing the required certification. The only way to maintain your certification status is to pass the replacement/ equivalent exam(s), when required.

Certification expirations

To keep Infor certifications and exams relevant, we regularly review, update, and replace exams. As part of this process, Infor may expire or retire exams.

When an exam is updated, it may be required for you to pass that equivalent replacement exam to maintain your certification status. After an updated exam is in production, your current certification is valid for one year. You will be notified, via email from Credly, 60 days prior to the badge expiration.

The previous version of an updated exam is considered expired. Expired exams are no longer valid for you to maintain your certification status. Unless you have successfully passed the equivalent replacement exam, you will lose your certification status.

Expired certifications display in your Credly profile, flagged as expired. You can set the badge to private if you do not want the expired badge to appear on your public profile.

When an exam is no longer current and will not be updated, the exam is considered retired. Retired exams may no longer be attempted. You will no longer see these exams to register/schedule in Webassessor. However, the certification earned is still valid, and Infor will allow you to maintain your individual certification status for that exam. Note: In some cases, Infor may require you to pass a comparable exam to maintain your organization’s certification status.

Certification Candidate Agreement

You will be presented and must agree to, the Certification Candidate Agreement for every exam in Webassessor. For your reference, a copy of the Infor Certification Program can be found here.

Upcoming Certification Expiry Policy - January 1, 2025

The Infor Certification Program recognizes and validates your skills and expertise in using Infor products and solutions. We continuously look to evolve our program offerings for Infor Certifications to remain relevant, valid, and meaningful. As such, Infor is instituting an important update to the Infor Certification Program certification expiry policy.

Effective January 1, 2025, the Infor Certification Program will be introducing a new certification expiry policy to: ensure your knowledge and skills are up to date with the latest product features and best practices; enable you, Infor, and our customers to easily identify individuals with the appropriate certification and capabilities to perform a role or task; and ensure your knowledge and skills are up to date with the latest product features and best practices.

Expiry Policy Overview

After the program rollout, certifications will be valid for two years from the date you earned the certification. To maintain your certification status, you will need to renew your certification by passing the latest version of the certification exam. Any certifications older than two years at program rollout will automatically expire.

Note: Not all certifications will fall into the new policy at program rollout due to the age of certification and available replacement. Any certifications that do not fall into the new policy at program rollout will roll into the program at a later date and notifications will be sent out at that time.
