@Assia yes, you’ll receive a valid certification if you pass, just like a live exam. 😊

Hi @Karlie Beil ,
Is there any difference on certification, between this v6.5 exam with the v6 exam that will retire on 18 Aug 2023? Or is it the same for both, which is NCP-US v6?

Thank you and best regards,

Userlevel 6

@ChaniagoHansa there are two versions of the exam (v6 and 6.5), but if you take either one you’ll still receive the latest NCP-US 6 certification.
