Open Group Certification Exam Retake Policy
The Open Group Certification for People Certification Policy indicates that after failing an examination, candidates must wait at least one month before re-taking any examination within that same certification program. If you retake your examination before the end of the waiting period, your test result will be void. This applies to all examinations within that program but does not affect examinations in another Open Group program. For example, in the TOGAF program, if you fail the Part 1 section of the TOGAF 9 Combined Part 1 and Part 2 examination, you would need to wait at least one month before taking just the Part 1 examination. However, there would be no restriction on taking an examination in another program, such as the IT4IT Part 1 examination.
