AWS CSA Associate - Passed

Passed the AWS CSA Associate yesterday (Monday, 10/09)...and had a very interesting experience!

I completed the exam portion in about 45 minutes.
Post exam portion, they ask you to complete a survey before showing your score and whether you passed or not.

The secure browser application froze/crashed on the 1st survey question!

The exam proctor exited the secure browser and attempted to reload it, but was unable to resume where I left off.

They were able to confirm from their admin computer that I completed the exam, but could not see if I passed or not. They also did not have any print outs available confirming if I passed.

I had to contact PSI support through the AWS training and certification portal. The support person I chatted with online had to escalate my case and told me I would get a response back in about 2 business days.

Luckily, this morning (Tuesday, 10/10), I got an email from support stating that they manually ended my exam for me, all my answers had been saved, and that I passed. They also said I would be receiving an email shortly.

The AWS training and cert portal shows that I passed and I was able to download a PDF of my cert.

Still waiting on that email though...haha.

What a crazy ride.

Great job Bill! That is crazy. That had to be nerve racking. At least it ended on a good note.

Congratulations Bill! So glad it all worked out for you!

I’d love to endorse/recommend you on LinkedIn if you want. All you have to do is add me as a connection and add Linux Academy as your school. Once you do that, post a picture of your cert about passing in your feed and reference me within the original post. Once I see this, I’ll be able to recommend you for your hard work on your LinkedIn profile.

Thanks,

Anthony
