Free second try to pass STS exam
Passing Symantec certification exam in Prometric is not easy. I am sure that a lot of community members who have that "Accredited" blue tag will argee.
On the other hand for partner to get specialized there's a requirement: 2 certified STS.
Person, who will try to pass the exam has a lot of job to do in their work environment. Such pros participate in lot of projects, prepare specs, setting up IT environments, etc. Thus it is not easy for them to prepare for examination, to find time for that.
It would be much easier if Symantec had some kind of incentive program for people who would like to pass STS exam. Like Microsoft has its 'Second Shot' for MCP exams. That means that the person who participate in this program will have second try to pass the STS exam for free if the first try was unsuccessful. This is the main idea.
Benefits are obvious: more people will try to pass the exam and more will pass for sure, specialists will be more confident at the first attempt, etc.
Such promos may vary:
- Get registered for STS exam until [date] and receive a free opportunity to pass the exam for free second time if the first one fails;
- Pay additional $5 and receive a free opportunity to pass the exam for free second time if the first one fails;
- Pass one STS exam until [date] and receive a free opportunity to pass another STS exam.
What do you think? If this will be realized in EMEA region - I will be the first one to register for an exam.
