F5 is committed to support candidates

The measures that local governments and businesses have made in response to COVID-19 have in many cases included restrictions to travel. F5 understands that this has greatly affected and limited our candidates’ ability to schedule and attend exam certification appointments.

We understand this global pandemic causes great stress and we don’t want to add any more stress to our candidates looking to renew their certifications. If you are unable to, or uncomfortable about, taking your re-certification exams, we do not want you to worry about the status of your F5 certification; please, simply take care of yourself and your family. Although we cannot provide an exact plan of action given the uncertainty about the scope and duration of the current situation, we want to assure you that no candidate will lose certification as a result of these extraordinary events.

In an effort to provide assurance during uncertain times, F5 is committed to support candidates’ careers through certification and contribute to their wellbeing. We are a strong community, and we will work together to get through this.
