Cloud Engineer Certification Program Overview

Exam Experience

Certification exams are taken online with a live proctor. This means that all locations and time zones are accommodated. Online proctoring provides the same benefits of a physical test center while being more accessible to exam-takers. The live proctor verifies the exam-taker’s identity, walks them through rules and procedures, and watches them take the exam. Be sure to follow the instructions on your exam appointment confirmation email about how to prepare your computer and physical environment to take the exam.

Your Credential

HashiCorp has partnered with Credly’s Acclaim platform to offer you a digital badge upon passing a certification exam. There is no fee for this service and acceptance is up to you. Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Badges link back to a real-time verification feature that describes your qualifications.


You can review our full HashiCorp Certification Knowledge Base, but here is a list of the most frequently asked questions:

How far in advance do I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment? You must reschedule or cancel your exam up to 48 hours before your appointment time.

How far in the future can exams be scheduled? You can schedule your exam up to 3 months in advance.

Can the exams be taken using a Linux operating system? As of October 2020 it is no longer possible to take an exam using Linux. Reestablishing Linux compatibility is a top priority and we are committed to getting it done as soon as possible. Enter your email in the “Stay Informed” box above to be notified when Linux support returns.

What is the retake policy?

  • You must wait seven days between exam attempts
  • You can only attempt an exam three times total in a one year period
  • If you have passed the exam, you can not retake it

What is a passing score? HashiCorp does not publish our pass percentage or correct answer threshold.

I passed my exam and have my badge. How do I get my certificate? Your certificate is attached to your badge in Acclaim. To find it, log in to youracclaim.com, navigate to your badge, click the Share button, and then the printer icon.
