Examination Details

The examination is conducted in a physical setting at our testing center located in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India.

The duration of the examination is 3 hours, during which candidates will be required to answer multiple-choice questions that test their understanding of the course material. The questions will be presented in a format where candidates need to select the best answer out of four choices.

Candidates who successfully complete the examination will receive a certification. This certification is globally recognized and serves as a testament to the candidate's knowledge and expertise in the field of vibration analysis.
