Three simple steps to OpCon certification
Obtaining OCP status is the best way to accelerate your journey to automation expertise. Here are the three steps to achieving certification:

Taking the exam
When you take the exam, you’ll be allowed to reference the OpCon Help and OpCon user interfaces. This exam will test your knowledge and ability to solve common automation challenges with OpCon.

You will be presented with thirty mostly multiple-choice questions and you will need to achieve a score of at least a 90% to pass. Be prepared!
