Certification Exam Process:

WordPress Expert Certification proves your knowledges and skills in WordPress CMS development and WordPress website administration. Certification process consists of two parts: theoretical questions-answers test, and practice task.
Theoretical test consists of 20 single and multiple choice questions by 1.5 minutes each. You'll need to correctly answer at least 15 of 20 questions to pass the test.
Practice task is the second part of certification process. It goes after the theoretical test and you can complete it at once or later another day. You will be asked to complete a small "real-life" task: create a WordPress website and develop several custom features on it. Time to complete the WordPress practice task is 150 minutes. Since June 2015, CancanIT automatically checks your results at once, and there is no need to wait for the manual verification check.

Applicants are allowed to have unlimited multiple attempts at all tests. Questions are randomized and an applicant may get a new version for each attempt. There is no penalty for failing certification exam, and it's free to retake the test after 24 hours.
