No. Please make sure that you only have the browser window/tab with the examination open. If English is not your native language, feel free to use a translation service during the exam. You are, in particular, not allowed to use KNIME Analytics Platform, KNIME Hub, or other KNIME-related resources during the examination.

Don't worry, you are allowed one retake of an exam as per the Terms and Conditions. You will be able to immediately retake it or prepare some more for a later retake.

Digital badges are web-enabled versions of a credential or certification that can be verified in real-time. Representing your achievements as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted, and can be easily verified (in contrast to "paper certificates"). Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you are capable of. You can share your skills on social media to build a digital CV or share it with a future employer.

Once you have claimed your digital badge, you can select "Print" in the sharing options to generate a PDF version of the digital badge for your employer.
