Preparing for the Examination

The Vskills Certification examination is designed to check and quantify the candidate's ability within the specialization represented by the Certification, The Vskills Certification evaluates his/her ability to practice in the discipline, and provide a foundation for granting professional recognition.

The examination reflects state-of-the-art principles and practices from the disciplines included in the Certification specialty. The exam expects that familiarity with current industry topics via experience, periodicals, and textbooks is continually being maintained. Vskills believes that knowledge of significant developments in the various Certifications, as well as a basic understanding of the various disciplines, be current. For this reason, the examination instrument is continually reviewed and revised to implement these factors into the testing process. Some material is provided to assist the student in preparation, but it is by no means the complete universe of material that the student should study. It is just a broad guideline of the syllabus.

Professional Certification is a significant undertaking. Sufficient time and energy should be allocated by the candidate towards preparation. Most of the needed preparation involves reviewing and brushing up on the various knowledge domains in the Certification’s respective knowledge base.  If candidates have extensive experience in the respective domains, the examination should not be difficult.  Candidates should avoid last minute cramming, as it is rarely beneficial in the long term. If their experience is minimal, or is limited to only certain areas of those related knowledge domains, they should seek study materials and work experience that will broaden their knowledge and experience. Unless candidates have had extensive exposure to the Certification knowledge domains, they are very unlikely to pass the Certification examination. The examination presumes that candidates have had a broad exposure to quality practices and have reviewed and read the current literature available on the particular Certification in their particular area.

There is no specific outline of study curriculum established by Vskills Certifications.  Candidates are responsible for their own study and preparation.   Bibliographic references are included in material provided for information purposes.  Candidates are expected to know and pursue other and more recent resources.
