DHI CHALLENGE EXAMS

Challenge Exams are available for many of DHI’s courses. Some require students to answer a battery of questions ranging between 25 to 50 questions. Certain challenge exams require the students to complete an additional exercise such as writing detailed hardware sets or writing a complete three-part specification.

ATTENTION CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM (CEP) PARTICIPANTS
Taking and passing a Challenge Exam will earn you a significant amount of CEP points. The formula for calculating your points is: For each hour of class time a Challenge Exam is worth, 1 CEP point will be earned. (Example: COR120 is a 2-day class, and there are 8 hours in a class day. Therefore, the 16-hour class would translate to 16 CEP points earned for passing the COR120 Challenge Exam.) Please note that the tracking and documenting of earned CEP points is the responsibility of the student.
