Can I find out what questions I missed?
No. As part of our policy, exams are not returned or reviewed with test candidates. This policy is in line with industry-wide standards.
When I achieve my certification, what kind of documentation do I receive?
Candidates who pass qualification exams for certification will receive a formal congratulatory letter and a printed copy of their certificate noting the certification and date it was achieved. These are sent by your local Genesys University training center 45 days after the certification is attained. Candidates will also be provided with an electronic Genesys Certified Professionals (GCP) logo file that they can use in their personal stationary or e-mail signature denoting their accomplishment. Please ensure that your profile information is accurate when completing a Prometric registration.

The Candidate Agreement lays out the terms, conditions, and confidentiality required of potential candidates and outlines the use of the Genesys Certified Professionals (GCP) logo on personal business cards. It will be presented as the first question of the online exam. You may view the Candidate Agreement in advance of taking the exam.
What is the process to retake the exam if I didn't pass?
You can schedule another exam at any Prometric testing center worldwide. Candidates must wait 10 days before retaking an exam.
What if I'm already a Certified Genesys Engineer (CGE) or a Certified Genesys Routing Professional (CGRP) from Genesys 5 or 6, do I need to re-certify?
All CGE6 and GCP7 individual professional certifications are limited to the Genesys products and version identified by their certification. For example, a CGE6 certification designates Genesys version 6 only. All Genesys version 6 individual professional certifications are valid for 2 major product releases.
All candidates who achieve their individual professional certifications after June 30, 2007 will be required to renew their certifications after three years (from the date of their exam), regardless of the number of Genesys major products that have been released since the date of their certification exam.
The Genesys Certified Professional 7 - System Consultant, Inbound Voice (GCP7-CIV) follows the CGE 6 exam. The CGRP 6 equivalent for version 7, Genesys Certified Professional 7 - Developer, Inbound Voice Routing (GCP7-DIV), is available for candidates interested in upgrading this certification. Genesys highly recommends attending the full preparation track (see Certified Preparatory Tracks), as new functionalities may have been introduced, in addition to the architecture and technology changes.
What if I am expertly familiar with Genesys software and want to take the exam but not the class?
Challenge exams are available. Registration procedures for challenge exams are the same as registering for the regular certification exams. See "What is the cost associated with the certification program?" above.
