Welcome back to the Linux Foundation Certified IT Associate Exam Course. In this module, we're going to focus on taking the LFCA exam. To start off, some exam details. Exam is going to be delivered online. What that means is you're going to be at your own location, using a web browser, using your Internet connection. You need a very good Internet connection, you can't have dropped packets. Dropped packets are when, if you're trying to watch Netflix or something, it has to keep rebuffering. You need a good location to take an exam. It's your location, and it'll be on. The exam is 60 multiple choice questions. You have 90 minutes to complete the exam, and the exam will be proctored remotely via streaming audio, video, and screen sharing feeds. The proctors there are to ensure that you are the one taking the exam, that you're not cheating. This is good for you because you want your credentials to mean something. When you walk away as a certified LCFA, you want anyone who sees that to know, "That's legit. No one can cheat on this exam because it's proctored." The results will be emailed 24 hours from the time that the exam is completed. My experience was a few hours. Take the exam, walk away, you'll get the results within 24 hours. Let's drill into a little more detail. All the questions are in English. That's important if English isn't your native language. The questions are going to be in English. You need a 75 percent to pass the exam. As part of the voucher, you can take a second take, if you don't pass the first time. You need to make sure you have the proper identification that shows you are who you say you are. You need to provide non-expired primary ID. What that means is that if it's got an expiration date, the expiration date needs to be in the future. It needs to contain your photograph, your signature, and your full name. There's a table that I list in the reading that shows you the acceptable forms of the ID. The name on the primary ID must exactly match the verified name on your exam checklist. When you sign up for the exam, make sure you're using that same exact name. If you use a nickname that's not on your ID, don't use that nickname on the exam. If your full name on your primary ID contains non-Latin characters, then you must also provide a non-expired secondary ID, containing your full name in Latin characters, and signature, or a notarized English translation of your primary ID, along with the non-Latin character primary ID. I've got links up in the reading that will give you more information. From a primary ID, the non-expired, and including your photograph and signature, this could be a passport, or a government issued driver's license or permit, your state government. I live in Massachusetts, I have a driver's license issued by the state government of Massachusetts. Again, remember, it cannot be expired, it has to have a photograph, and your signature. You can also have government-issued local language ID, with photo and signature, your national identity card, or a state or province-issued identity card. Again, if your candidate names are in Latin characters in your primary ID, you can use a secondary ID, which has to be non-expired, and include a signature. This can be a debit ATM card, a credit card, a health insurance card, a US social security card, or a Japanese health insurance card. The reading will have links that'll send you more information. I just want to get this idea at the front of your head because if you have an issue with your name not having Latin characters, you want to deal with that early. If you're a minor, someone under the age of 18, you can take the exam if you're 16 to 18, provided the following requirements, a parent/guardian must complete the Parental Release for Testing of Minors form. You must submit it to trainingsupport.linuxfoundation.org, at least two weeks prior to the scheduled date of the exam. At check-in, the minor candidate must present a valid student ID as a form of identification. During the PSI check-in process, the candidate's guardian must also present a valid ID, and must provide verbal consent during the PSI check-in process. If you're a minor, you must have a guardian there with you, at least, for the beginning of the check-in. A little review, there are 60 multiple choice questions on the exam. You need to score 75 percent, so you need to get three out of every four right, or in the sense of 60, you need to get 45 or more right. You only need a secondary ID, if your primary ID uses non-Latin characters in your name. See you in the next lesson.
