Retaking an Exam
Retake exams are at your own cost. A voucher is good for a single exam attempt. If you do not pass, you will need to purchase another voucher to retake that exam. PWC Training does not provide free “retake vouchers.” Therefore, be sure to do the necessary preparation before scheduling your exam.
