What is a voucher?
A voucher is a single-use, individually-coded, date-sensitive discount defined as a flat dollar amount or a percentage. Vouchers are valid only for a specific exam or group of exams (ex. Associate and Professional). Vouchers are exam language specific. Vouchers may be assigned to a specific user and therefore can only be redeemed by that user. Voucher codes may also be assigned to users with a specific email domain. Redemption must occur by a specified expiration date.
How can I purchase voucher codes in bulk?
Voucher codes can be purchased directly from Kryterion ($1000 minimum). Visit https://www.kryteriononline.com/google-cloud-bulk-voucher-program to download an order form and to find more information.
Can I have a voucher code when I renew my certification?
On or around 60 days before expiration you will receive notification that your certification will expire soon. In this notification you will be issued a 50% discount voucher code that can be applied to your recertification attempt.
Do you offer voucher codes for students?
Students are eligible to receive a discounted (50%) exam attempt of the Associate Cloud Engineer certification exam only. To ensure exam readiness and eligibility for an exam discount, you must meet the requirements of the Google Cloud career readiness program below.
All students must have completed the following to be eligible for a certification voucher:
- The Architecting with Google Compute Engine Specialization on Coursera (5 courses)
- At least five Qwiklabs quests (see below)
Submit the Application for Certification Voucher. As part of the application, you must provide the urls for the Coursera Specialization and Qwiklabs public profile.
If you meet the eligibility criteria your application will be approved and the certification voucher will be emailed to you in 7 business days.
If you are not currently participating in the Google Cloud career readiness program, please ask your faculty to apply. Faculty can enroll their students into the program.
Do you offer voucher codes for veterans?
The Veteran’s Administration recognizes the Associate Cloud Engineer, Professional Cloud Architect, Professional Data Engineer and Professional Cloud Developer exams as reimbursable certification tests. After attempting the exam and receiving results, you may apply for reimbursement using VA Form 22-803. Additional information about this benefit is available on the Licensing and Certification page of the GI Bill website.
If I need to reschedule my exam, will I be able to reuse the voucher I used in my original registration?
If you use a voucher for an exam, but fail to sit for the exam or cancel the exam outside of the exam reschedule window, the voucher code is considered “consumed” and cannot be reused. However, you may use the same voucher code to reschedule your exam before the reschedule window closes (more than 72 hours before an in person/test center exam, more than 24 hours for an online exam).
I am getting an error message (ex. "Invalid Promotion Code" ) when I try to redeem the voucher, why is that?
A few ways to troubleshoot:
Confirm that when you copy/paste your voucher into the system, you didn’t copy additional spaces or a period.
Confirm your code is valid for the language of exam you have selected.
