After you have created your profile and verified your account, you will be able to SSO over to Pearson VUE and schedule your exam. Even if you have a Pearson VUE account, from previous certification programs you have engaged in, you will need to become a part of the Tanium Certifications community through our portal to participate. You can find out more about the Tanium Certification portal in our Candidate Handbook under “General Information.”

Can I retake the exam?

Our retake policy can be found here and is enforced without exception.

How do I know what is on the exam and how do I prepare?

Refer to the exam guide for additional details. While the recommended courses focus on many of the areas tested in the exam, they do not cover all the test materials. Detailed information can be found in our Candidate Handbook under “Exam Prep.” Hands-on experience is the best preparation for any exam.
