We are pleased to announce the availability of the Level-1 certification exam ONLINE.

This marks the beginning of the transition of the PAA Certification exams from the old paper form to an online form.The transition of Level-2 and beyond will follow.

This change also allows PAA to upgrade and improve the testing system by streamlining the questions, adding more depth of knowledge, and in general, raise the standard of our certification process all around.

The obvious benefit of online testing is making it available to everyone without the limitation of location, date or time.

For more info check out our Certification page.
