Curious about GInI's retake policy? Here's what you need to know:

Retake Attempts:

There's no limit on the number of exam attempts you can make. However, each attempt requires payment of the registration fee.

Waiting Period:

Once you pass an exam, you must wait for two years before retaking the same exam. This waiting period applies to the identical exam version.

Updated Exams:

If an exam is updated with a new guide and series code, you can attempt the new version without waiting for the two-year period.

At GInI, we understand that every learner is unique, and while some individuals prefer structured training courses, others thrive through self-study. We offer flexibility in your certification journey, allowing candidates to self-study for most GInI exams.

Self-Study Eligibility:

For most GInI certifications, candidates are indeed allowed to pursue self-study independently without the requirement to attend an accredited training course. This approach empowers individuals to tailor their study methods to their preferences and schedules.

The Exception: Authorized Innovation Assessor (AInA)® Exam:

The Authorized Innovation Assessor (AInA)® certification is a unique case within our certification offerings. To maintain the highest standards of competence for this certification, GInI requires candidates to complete a mandatory 24 hours of education specifically related to the AInA certification. This education must be provided by a GInI Authorized Provider and delivered by a GInI Master Assessor.

Getting Started with Self-Study:

If you're considering self-study, here's a simple guide to get started:

  1. Choose Your Certification: Visit our "Professional Certification" page to explore the various certifications GInI offers. Select the one that aligns with your career goals and interests.
  2. Access Study Materials: GInI provides recommended study materials and exam guides for each certification. These resources will be your primary tools for self-study.
  3. Create a Study Plan: Develop a study plan that outlines your study schedule, goals, and milestones. This will help you stay organized and motivated. Practice, Practice, Practice: Utilize practice exams and sample questions to assess your knowledge and readiness for the actual exam.
  4. Register for the Exam: Once you feel confident in your preparation, visit the GInI online store to register for the exam of your choice.
