Booking an Exam


When you purchase a seat on a Blue Coat course, the price includes one exam key. One exam key is used each time you attempt the test. On completion of your Blue Coat certification course, please discuss taking the applicable exam with your trainer or a representative of Red Education. We will be happy to facilitate it for you.


All exams are done online through Prometric online testing when you are ready. You will need to log in and create an account for yourself. At the completion of your course, the instructor will give you an exam key for access to the tests.


The Prometric website will guide you through the remainder of the process. Once you receive your certification, it is then valid for 1 year. Your certificate will be emailed to you upon successful completion of the exam.


Should you use the exam key and have not passed the test, you can then purchase more exam keys through Red Education for USD$150 each.

BCCPA Waiver Exam


It is a prerequisite that each student sit and pass the BCCPA course and exam before sitting the BCPP course.


Blue Coat does understand that some students may have extensive contact with Blue Coat products and would prefer not to enrol in the BCCPA course. For this reason, Blue Coat has developed the BCCPA waiver exam.


These instances are evaluated on a case by case basis and you will need to contact your Red Education Account Manager to initiate this process for you.


The exam can only be administered by Blue Coat and they will grade and email the results to the student directly.


The cost for the exam is USD$250 and will take two hours to complete.
