Users do not need to go to a testing center or schedule a time for the CCSK exam as it is online and available at your convenience. There are no hardware requirements or specific programs users need to install in order to take the exam. Please ensure that you have a steady internet connection before starting to ensure you have the best experience taking the exam. The exam is 90 minutes, so users should be sure to allow at least that much time, but you can start whenever you're ready.
The questions are pulled from a pool and are not always the same for every attempt. CSA does not share the answers to maintain the integrity of the exam. Please navigate to https://ccsk.cloudsecurityalliance.org/en/attempts to review any attempts you have made. Under each attempt within your account, there is a knowledge domain breakdown under certificate details. This can help users understand which areas of the material they should most focus on for their studies.
Any token can be used for any available version of the exam. Users can select which exam to take from the Exam Attempts screen (https://ccsk.cloudsecurityalliance.org/en/attempts). Once you select to begin a new exam, you will be redirected to a version selection screen. Here, users may choose to select either v3 or v4, depending on which exam you have studied for. If you have not begun your studies, we highly recommend taking v4 as this is the most current version.
