Please remember to bring photo ID to the exam. We will have pencils, scratch paper, and some calculators available.
We will remind you the day of the exam of the rules, but I’d like to set them out here so there are no surprises.
Applicants must follow the instructions of the VEs. Failure to comply will result in the offending applicant having their exam terminated without further action. [§97.509(c)]
Applicants may not have in their possession any electronic devices while taking an exam, with the exception of calculators (see #3 below).
- Applicants must turn off their electronic devices and they may not be visible to the applicant during the exam. Failure to comply will disqualify the applicant from further participation in the examination session.
- Cell phones may not be used as calculators and must be turned off while exams are being administered.
- Smart watches and Google Glass/Glasses may not be brought to the examination area (e.g., the tables, stations, etc., where the applicant will sit to take the exam).
Applicants who bring calculators must have them checked by a VE to ensure nothing is programmed or stored in the memory, or must demonstrate to a VE that nothing is programmed or stored in memory..
Applicants shall place their applicant pin and test id at the top of the exam page. Applicant pin is provided by the Hamstudy.org registration. If an applicant does not have this information with them, the VE team can help locate the information. Bubbles on the exam answer sheet shall be filled in completely.
Applicants must write their name on any scratch/note paper used. This is not necessary if they use the back of the answer sheet.
If any applicant leaves the examination area for any reason (e.g. bathroom break, smoke break, etc.) before completing their exam, the applicant’s exam will be immediately graded and the applicant will be informed of the result.
The SecKC VE Team will allow applicants to retest as time allows at the VE team’s discretion.
The BSideKC Code of Conduct and Recording Policy must be followed at all times.
If you have any questions, or if something comes up after you've signed up and you cannot make the exam, please let us know. You can contact Reid Crowe, email@example.com or reach out to the SecKC VE team on the SecKC discord server in the
