We are working with Pearson Vue and Credly/Acclaim to get the certifications and badge issuing in a more timely fashion. Currently the badges are coming much quicker than the certifications. 😁
If you have passed an exam and received a badge, it is valid regardless if the certification is showing in the User Center. You may share the badge and if you are questioned, you may present the Score Report from your exam as proof of certification. The certification data still needs to be sent to Check Point to show in the User Center and this may take 5-7 business days. If you want the certification to show in User Center sooner, you may contact Account Services and give them a copy of the Score Report and they can validate it and issue the certification.
