Hi Folks,
I'm just wondering how long it takes to get the voucher if I did the registeration online. I registered last sat. and have started preparing for the beta exam. I hope I can be one of 400 beta exam takers and pass the exam.
Cheers,
Michael

I registered on the 15th May and haven't received a voucher. I've still been studying, as I'll take it in August if I'm not included in the beta.

as we all must have received the mail after registeration , which says that please allow us 7 to 10 business days for vouchers. Plsu , they have started issuing after 19 th june. I guess they must be very busy. Patience is the name of the game.

I could have sworn they said five business days originally. But still, even if it's 10, I can wait that long. It's just a frustration since none of us can even sign up then until we hear...
On another note, has anyone who registered through the webform gotten their voucher yet?

I just figured out from the post "Sun Certified Business..." that guys (like Ashik, Nazmul) who had registered on 14th May, got their vouchers on the 23rd. I registered on 15th, so I am looking forward to it now.
I'll let you know when and if I get it.
Thanks, Sudd

Howdy all...
Sun is *still* working on sending out the vouchers, so they are not all out yet. Apparently it is very time-consuming to confirm that everyone has passed the SCJP, and that is what takes so long. There's no automated way to do it
So try to be patient just a little bit longer -- I know it's tough.
Cheers,
Kathy

Kathy,
Can I say that if I don't get my voucher by the 4th, I won't be able to take the beta exam?
Cheers,
Michael

Actually, I have to say that kind of surprises me that it's so difficult. I mean, Sun has the CertManager app that we use for tracking these things - doesn't Sun Education have access to that database too? I figure it would be fairly easy from there to punch in someone's last name and their testing number to confirm....
But then again, I'm looking at it from the outside, so who knows.

I have registered on 21st May, and got the confirmation reply. Per prior posting whoever gets the confirmation email will definately get the voucher. Kathy can you please find out from the Sun whether they are still sending the vouchers , or it's been stopped?

Hi All,
Today is June 2 and I'm still sending out vouchers. This is an automated process and I check one by one to make sure you are Programmer Certified to receive a voucher, hence it is a pre-requisite.
Thank you for being patient.
