We'll be going live with the PowerShell Toolmaker program very soon. Wave 1 will permit our PowerShell Summit N.A. 2014 alumni who registered early and were given a free exam. If you're one of those folks, and if you would like to be an early registrant, please contact exams at PowerShell.org. You will need to have your Summit confirmation code (it was e-mailed to you when you registered, and was printed on your badge; we cannot provide it to you if you've lost it). We're looking for a small handful of early registrants to take the exam and help us test the grading systems. If you pass, it's "real," and you'll get an e-certificate like the one shown here!
How do you know if you got a free exam? There was a slip included with your badge at the Summit. If you weren't paying attention, we'll allow you to try entering your Summit confirmation code as an exam voucher to see if it works. If you can't find your confirmation code, you're out of luck.
Wave 1 is designed to let us test the system and make sure everything is working well, in a small enough scale to manage any problems that arise.
If you'd like to know more about the program, and understand when it may be open to you, please review the VERIFIED EFFECTIVE information page.
