COURSE CHALLENGE EXAMS
DHI Challenge Exam online through our New Online Education System (OES). Passing a challenge exam will give you credit for a specific course needed for the DHI Education and Credentialing Program. By taking the Challenge Exam, you are indicating to DHI that you have gained enough knowledge of the subject matter through study and experience.
IMPORTANT! An individual might NOT pass the Challenge Exam solely by studying the reference materials provided by DHI for the course. DHI highly recommends taking classroom courses to gain a thorough knowledge of the subject matter. If a student fails a Challenge Exam, he/she will incur a retake fee that will be equivalent to the cost of the Challenge Exam at the time the retake is requested.

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.
