Certification exam

You have to take a 75 minute exam for the Foundation Level (CPUX-F) and achieve at least 28 out of 40 possible points. The exam contains 40 multiple-choice questions.

There are two ways to take an exam:

  • at a training organisation (with - or without course).
    You can obtain the relevant exam dates directly from the training provider.
  • at the SAQ office in Bern
    We offer exams for individuals or small groups (maximum five persons). You can agree exam dates directly with us via email or by telephone (+41 31 330 99 14).

SAQ Personnel Certification is responsible for organising and evaluating the exam. The written confirmation of the result will be issued 10 to 15 working days after the exam.

For a certification, the attendance of courses is not mandatory, though recommended.
