Our exams are available in English.

Special accommodations

Testing accommodations are considered on a case-by-case basis and may require supporting documentation.

Providing exam feedback to Looker

We value your feedback. For this reason, we have enabled a comments box below each test question on the exam. Please use this free field to provide us with any concerns or comments that you have about any test question.

Scaled scoring

Looker Certification passing scores are set by using statistical analysis and are subject to change. Looker does not publish exam passing scores because exam questions and passing scores are updated to reflect changes in test forms as the content is updated.

Scaled scoring models are used to equate scores across multiple exam forms and versions that may have slightly different difficulty levels. Scaled scores are a mathematical conversion of the number of items that a candidate correctly answers, so there is a consistent scale used across all forms of an exam.

Retake policy

If you do not pass an exam, you can retake it after five days. You will only be allowed three attempts in a 12-month period. Payment is required each time you take an exam.

Circumventing this retake policy by registering under a different name or any other means is a violation of the exam terms and conditions and will result in a denied or revoked certification.

Receiving a certification / logo

Once you have passed a Looker Certification exam, you will receive an email including a PDF certificate immediately after completing your exam.

Recertification

There will be a recertification or maintenance activity to ensure Looker Certified professionals stay up to date with any changes in the platform. We will email all certified individuals in March 2020 with more detailed information about the recertification requirements.
