The Pay-As-You-Go Plan is a more flexible way to earn your certification credentials since it lets you pay for each part separately. This plan works by enrolling in Individual Courses one by one, instead of purchasing a certification program. The Individual Courses make up our certification programs, so you will still receive all of the knowledge required to pass the certification exams. However, you will not get any of the supplemental information, resources, membership, or benefits included in a certification program.
To complete a Pay-As-You-Go Plan, you will need to enroll in and complete all the Individual Courses required for a certification credential. It doesn’t matter which order you complete the Individual Courses in, as long as they are not expired when you take your exam. You can buy them one at a time or purchase multiple courses at once. Enrollment in Individual Courses provides a Basic Membership for your course access duration, but you can upgrade it to a Standard Membership or Premium Membership if desired.
Once you have completed the required courses, please contact our support team to purchase an exam voucher. Upon receiving a passing grade for the certification exam, you have now earned your certification credential. You will receive your certificate of completion and engraved award in the mail. To keep your certification credential in “good standing,” we require you purchase either a Standard Membership or a Premium Membership after passing your exam.
