Retaking Test
The policies for retaking test are as follows:

  • Candidates may retake each test module as needed and within 90 days until a passing score is obtained.
  • Candidates who fail a test module must watch the specific video again before retaking the attendant test. Once passed, a candidate may advance to the next test module in the series, if required.
  • Candidates have 90 days from date of purchase to complete certification training.
  • Candidates who violate these policies are in violation of the agreement. Such conduct is strictly prohibited as described in the CODE Terms Of Purchase and Terms of Use Disclosures

Limited Warranties and Limitation on Liability
If any test provided to you is found to be defective, CODE will replace such test within sixty days after your purchase. CODE makes no other warranties, express or implied, and specifically disclaims other warranties, including (without limitation) any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. CODE shall not be liable for any indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages or loss, whether such damages are based upon a breach of express or implied warranties, breach of contract, negligence, strict tort, or any other legal theory arising out of the candidate’s use, or failure to use a test. This is true even CODE is advised of the possibility of such damages. CODE is not liable for the use, interpretation or implementation of test results. In no case will CODE’s liability exceed the amount of the test(s) purchase price.

In such a case, the above limitation of remedies provision shall still apply.

You hereby indemnify and agree to hold CODE harmless from, and against, all claims, demands, cost (including reasonable attorney fees and court costs) and causes of action of any type or nature, in law or equity, which arise from your use, interpretation or implementation of test results. This indemnification shall survive the termination of the conditions of this Agreement.
