Hi,

I would like to wonder whether IBM will give some free test vouchers in 2006. Does anybody has information?

I believe IBM usually does not make such announcements until mid-January.

The earliest reference I can find of that announcement was from mid-January. At any rate, I'll ask them and let you know if I get a response.

They'll announce it when they do. The best way to find out is to keep an eye on their news page, which is where they'll post word of it, or at CertCities.

When IBM announced the promotion, or whether it announced is not important. Actually, it is NOT an obligation for IBM to provide promotions every year.

Might be the pool of IBM certification holders become more significant, and thus, IBM is not going to provide the promotion this year.

I know IBM is offering all WebSphere certifications tests and some Rational exams (255,256 and 257) for free for users registered to some Websphere usergroups.
See the relation of usergroups that are participating of the promotion at www.ibm.com/certify

Hi ruijin yang,

You need to register in websphere.org, this is the place where stay all WUG around the world.
After that, just add yourself to some group with free exams, and contact the WUG Leader to had informations about the exams.

the only problem is that the free exams only offer at the certain time in the user group city.

I don't know about others, but I won't get up at 7am in a sunday morning, and drive 6 hours to another city just for a free IBM exam.
