Q. Do I need to renew my TOGAF 8 certification in order to take the
Advanced Bridge exam?
A. No. You only need to have been previously TOGAF 8 certified in order
to take the exam, you do not need to be currently listed on the register.
Q. I was notified that my voucher expiry date is 31 October 2013, do I need to do anything to have it extended?
A. If your voucher is from an Accredited Training Course provider
and has the prefix 9A, then the extension has been made and you
do not need to contact The Open Group. If you have a voucher
from another source please contact that source (please note
that The Open Group can only extend vouchers it has provided).
Q. I have already booked an appointment and want to reschedule. What should I do?
A. To reschedule your appointment in the Prometric
online system, you should do so at least 48 hours before the existing appointment. If you have difficulty you should contact Prometric by phone.

Q. What if I still cannot take my exam by 31 December 2013?
A. For any candidates who are unable to complete the examination before
the revised end date, The Open Group will on request swap unused Bridge vouchers (beginning
with code 9A) for a Combined TOGAF 9 Part 1 and 2 examination voucher
at no additional charge provided you send in a request to the
certification authority no later than 31 Dec 2013 (please note that The
Open Group offices will be closed for the holiday period
so we won't be able to respond with a new voucher code until we open
for business in January).
Q. What if I fail my exam after November 30 2013?
A. As the retake policy requires you to wait at least one month before
taking another examination and the exam will be withdrawn by that point, you can request
a discount voucher for either the Part 1 examination or the
Combined Part 1 and 2 examination as per the instructions
on the score report.
Q. Why does it say that the exam will commence withdrawal on 31 October 2013?
A. The withdrawal commences with The Open Group ceasing to sell vouchers to its accredited trainers. The last date for voucher purchase by trainers is October 31 2013.
