DASCA Certification Examinations
The examinations for all certification programs of the Data Science Council Of America are held in Pearson VUE test centers. Currently, almost 7000 locations across the world are covered by the DASCA-Pearson network. All examinations are computer-based,
taken on computer-desktops in secure and examinee-friendly Pearson VUE test centers. Generally, examinees marking 65% of their answers correct qualify for the DASCA Credential award. However, since a complex multi-variable algorithm is used to take qualification decisions to nullify geographic and other environmental factors with potential to skew performance, the qualifying benchmark should not be expected to stay pegged exactly to 65%.
Fee for certification examinations is taken at the time of registering for a DASCA Certification. There is no separate charge for exams to be paid by examinees anywhere for any DASCA Certification. Registration is online, and can be done on the DASCA or Pearson VUE websites, and fee can be paid online using cards or internet-banking. Individuals who successfully register with DASCA are provided with the Official DASCA Certification Exam kit to help them study for their examinations. Once ready, individuals can go to the Pearson VUE website to schedule the examination for their chosen DASCA Certification.
