What’s a beta exam?
The BlackBerry® Certification Program currently offers beta versions of exams—exam codes starting with BCX. A beta exam consists of approximately 150-200 questions to be completed over 4 hours. Candidates will be asked to answer all of the questions that may be used in the final exam.
If beta candidates pass the beta exam, they’ll credit toward the relevant BlackBerry certification(s). Beta candidates will not receive their results immediately as beta results go under extensive analysis to determine the final pool of items and establish the passing score.
How do I become a beta participant?
To be added to the pool of potential beta candidates, email email@example.com with the certification streams/exams of interest. Due to the demand for beta exams, you may not receive an invitation to all exams of interest.
Can I achieve certification if I pass a beta exam?
Yes. Completing and passing the beta exam will grant you the same credit toward certification as a live exam.
How long will it take to receive my certification package after I’ve passed a live exam or beta exam?
It will take approximately 8 to 10 weeks once you’ve written and passed a live exam to receive your certification package.
If you write a beta exam, it will take approximately 8 to 10 weeks to receive your certification package from the time the beta ends.
Which exam is right for me?
Each exam reflects real-life tasks a person working in a BlackBerry environment will perform. To determine which exams best suit your desired career path, review the BlackBerry Certification Program Guide. (PDF)
