Check Point Certification Goes Paperless
Starting 15 June 2015 Check Point discontinued hard copy certificates. You may access your certifications through your Check Point User Center accounts and print a certificate on demand. Check Point no longer provides hard copy certificates.
As always, for your certifications to show in your User Center account, your email address in your Pearson VUE profile must exactly match you User Center email address.
Check Point will only recognize one Pearson VUE profile, and that profile must be tied to your professional e-mail address linked to your User Center profile.
Who Owns Your Certification
Regardless of who pays for the exam, you, the exam candidate own the results. Your exam history is linked to your Certified Professional ID number granted the first time you create a Pearson VUE account. You should never create another one. If you change employers, you need only contact Account Services (email@example.com) and they will assist you in moving your records to a new account.
When Did You Last Update Your Profiles
Some of our candidates have been with us for a long time, and we value that time. If you’ve changed employers, or your employer has changed mail servers, please take a few minutes and update your Pearson VUE profile AND your Check Point Certification Profile as well. To update your Certification Profile, please contact Check Point at firstname.lastname@example.org and the Account Services personnel will be happy to assist you.
