That is the time it is being offered. There is a prep class right before the test as well.
Maybe you can arrange to use a free code to take the test on-line at a later date. I can't really offer that, but it might be worth looking into.
I'll have to check into that. It just seems like really poor planning on Siemens' part to hold a certification test before the start of SEU2016 and while a lot of people are probably traveling.
Scheduling stuff is tough work. They put it as late as they could in the only block of time they had when it didn't conflict with something else.
You'll probably make it to the hotel when the test is going on. Just go in and explain your situation to who ever is running the show, and they should be able to get you going in the right direction from there.
I understand. I was surprised that the test went from 2 sessions last year to only one.
Because it is not at the same time as other events, they may be able to put more machines in the room. I'm not sure exactly why that happened.
Kevin Riggs contacted me regarding the certification test. I think will take the test online this year and see how it goes.
That will work out. I've taken it online, and it allows you to get prepared however you want to prepare. Plus now you can use that time in Indianapolis however you want.
