We're celebrating the launch of the new certification program by offering a free Delphi Developer Certification exam to most registered users of Delphi XE and RAD Studio XE. You just need to request a free test code by July 31, 2011 and then take the exam within 90 days of getting your test code.
You can get the free code by going to the Delphi Developer Certification page and clicking the link for the free test offer under Step 2. Be sure to also see the other steps including Step 1 with the Study Guide so you can get ready for the exam. If you don't pass the first time, you'll have to pay to take the exam again.
There are some rules, restrictions and exclusions listed on the certification web page and on the page where you enter your registered Delphi XE or RAD Studio XE serial number to get the free exam.
