Training & Certification FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions related to CloudBees self-paced and instructor-led training as well as CloudBees Certification.

  • How to register and prepare for Jenkins Certification exams

    You should take a look at our Certification Guide. This guide walks you through the key need-to-know about Jenkins Certifications.

    Preparation and many Jenkins courses are also available as self-paced through CloudBees University.

    Certification courses may also be offered during the annual DevOps|Jenkins World event.

  • I see new certifications available, but I already scheduled one of the older ones. Can I change which one I want to test for?

    Yes! For instance, perhaps you are scheduled to take the CCJE exam, but you want to switch to the new CloudBees CI Essentials exam. No problem!

    As long as you are more than 48 hours from your scheduled exam, simply cancel the old one and you will receive a refund. You can then schedule the new exam you want.
    If you used a voucher, you can still use the same voucher code for the new exam (it does not get used up until you actually take an exam).

    Here are the steps:

    • Go to https://webassessor.com/cloudbees.

    • Log in with the credentials you received via email when you initially scheduled.

    • Go to My Assessments.

    • Select “Reschedule/Cancel for the exam you no longer want.

    • Choose Cancel, Submit.

    • Select Register for an Assessment and schedule the one you want.

  • I have a voucher for an exam, where or how do I apply it?

    While registering for the exam, you will follow the check-out process. Upon beginning check out, you will be able to enter a Coupon/Voucher code for the exam.

  • Can I take my exam online?

    Absolutely! In fact, as of June 2022, we have shifting entirely to online exams. You no longer need to go to a testing center to take advantage of our certification offerings.

  • When should I receive my certificate after passing my exam?

    Within 10 business days you will receive an email containing a link to your certificate and digital badge.
    Your certificate will include:

    • A unique URL to be shared on social networks

    • Automated insertion in your Linkedin profile

    • A downloadable PDF certificate

  • I did not pass my exam! Can you share why I didn’t pass?

    We are very sorry to hear you did not pass. Unfortunately we cannot disclose detailed questions and responses as this could be used to weaken the integrity of the exam. Please review the study guides and try again.
    If technical issues were encountered during the exam, please reach out to Contacting Webassessor (Kryterion) Support.

  • If I used a voucher code for my exam. Can I use the same voucher if I cancel the exam and re-schedule?

    Yes, you can use the same voucher code. It only becomes invalid if it expires or when you launch the exam.

  • Managing Certifications (cancellations, date changes, etc)

    Customers can self-manage their certification exams including registrations, date changes, location changes, cancelations. Direct them to login to https://webassessor.com/cloudbees -> My Assessments.

  • I am receiving errors while trying to use webassessor.com/cloudbees on a mobile device?

    Currently the Webassesor registration sites are not mobile friendly. It is on the roadmap to make these work for mobile devices. Until then, please use a “Desktop browser” to register and manage your exams.

  • I’m receiving an error or having a problem with the Webassessor site

    Please contact Kryterion support.

  • How do I verify a Certificate from the CloudBees Certified Jenkins Engineer (CCJE) or Certified Jenkins Engineer (CJE) exams?

    You can verify certificate numbers or URL’s here on Accredible’s website.

  • Link to my Certificate from the CloudBees Certified Jenkins Engineer (CCJE) or Certified Jenkins Engineer (CJE) exams goes to 404 page. How do I get to my certificate?

    If your link looks like https://certificates.cloudbees.com/abcdefgh/sso?code=4722, the problem is most likely the /sso?code=4722 part of the path, please try removing it. You can also get your certificate ID from the URL (the abcdefgh part) and use it on the site mentioned in the previous question.

  • I have a laptop and I received an email saying I need an external webcam. Do I need an external webcam to take the proctored exam?

    We accept any camera for our proctored exam, so your built-in laptop camera should work for the exam.

  • When I registered for the exam, I am asked to provide to provide a Test Taker Authorization Code but I’ve not received it.

    If you’re applying for the online proctored exam you may not receive any Test Taker Authorization Code as it is not required for the online exam modality.

  • I enrolled in a training course. Where can I find my invoice?

    • An invoice is auto-generated and sent to your mailbox when you registered for the course. Please double check your spam folder if you couldn’t find it.

    • If you want your company name added to the invoice, please create a support request and provide the company name. We will send you an email when the new invoice is ready.

  • Help, my self-paced Virtual Box/Vagrant environment is not working!

    Most troubleshooting tips can be found within your class’s lab troubleshooting guide. Check for the section of your course called “Install Lab Environment”

    and then browse to “Troubleshooting”

    While CloudBees produces self-paced lab environments that can be hosted locally for students, CloudBees supports these for non-CloudBees customers as “Best effort” support, meaning we will provide initial triage and support to replicate problems encountered. However if the issue is environmental or not widespread, CloudBees may not be able to immediately resolve. Most labs can be followed along with hosting your own local environment as well by downloading Jenkins from Jenkins.io.

  • When following the “Install Lab Environment” instructions for a training course, nothing happens when you run the command vagrant up. The command line exits without any output or error, or just hangs.
