One Exam for both Initial Certification and Renewal

There is a single exam for both the Initial Certification as well as Certification Renewals. Taking the exam is free. After successfully passing the exam and purchasing into the Certification Program, the certified individual receives an official Certificate from Freedom Scientific, and his/her name is included on the website of certified individuals. Inclusion on this website helps to enhance exposure of certified individuals as knowledgeable in the features and use of the JAWS screen reader and/or ZoomText Magnifier/Reader.

Two options exist when purchasing the product certification:

  • Initial Certification - For first-time certifications, a user needs to purchase the "Initial Certification."
  • Certification Renewal - For successive certifications, a user can purchase the "Certification Renewal" at a lower cost.
