Certification Board Schedule
Please note that The Open Group has transitioned its Open Professions program to stepwise milestone evaluation, thereby making applications for certification simpler for you to complete. Applications for milestones and milestone certification can now be submitted. Register here. If you are in the process of applying for certification using the existing path, and you informed us of your intention no later than September 1, 2020 and registered and paid, you may continue in order to be accepted and scheduled for a peer review board. After January 10, 2021, only applications using the stepwise format will be accepted.
All certification boards are currently being held remotely by video conference and usually take place over the period of one week.

In order to be scheduled for a Certification Review Board, candidates must have submitted their materials and had them accepted by the Certification Authority at least 45 days in advance of the meeting. Acceptance by the Certification Authority takes the form of explicit messages to denote acceptance of the Certification Package and the Method Document (if applicable, Open CA only). The 45 day cutoff dates are shown in the table above. To achieve acceptance by this date, initial submission of Certification Packages should be made at least two weeks in advance of the cutoff date.
