  • How do I buy vouchers?

    A new AWS-branded purchasing site will be hosted by, and the vouchers will be distributed by, a third-party company called Xvoucher. AWS will not sell vouchers directly to customers and partners. Get started by selecting the Buy exam vouchers now button above.

  • Which vouchers can I purchase?

    You can purchase AWS Certification exam vouchers by level for any corresponding exam; you do not have to specify the exam. Choose from Foundational-level, Associate-level, and Professional-level or Specialty. You can also choose to purchase vouchers to register for certification exams delivered at Pearson VUE or PSI testing centers. You cannot buy practice exam or beta exam vouchers.

  • If I want to buy a practice exam voucher, or if I already have one, which vendor can I use it with?

    Though practice exam vouchers are not available for sale via Xvoucher, they may be purchased directly from, and redeemed by, PSI. Please contact PSI for instructions on how to purchase practice exam vouchers. Please note that these practice exam vouchers are non-transferable and only redeemable at PSI. Practice exam vouchers are not available for purchase from Pearson VUE.

  • Do I need to determine where exams have to take place at the time of voucher purchase? Do I have to choose Pearson VUE or PSI?

    At the time of purchase, you may select either Pearson VUE or PSI as the test delivery provider. You do not have to choose a location or time, so exam candidates can enjoy the flexibility of choosing the most convenient location and time to take their certification exam. 

  • Is there a minimum or maximum number of vouchers I can purchase?

    There is no minimum or maximum. Customer purchases are only limited based on available funds, such as a credit card limit or bank account balance for wire transfers.

  • Is a credit card required to purchase a voucher? How else can I pay?

    Payment may be made by the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. For customers who have created an account, payments may also be made via wire. Payments via credit card and wire require acceptance of an online click-wrap agreement with Xvoucher.

  • How do I find help with buying a voucher?

    If you are having problems with the online purchasing experience at Xvoucher, you can submit a technical support ticket to Xvoucher.

  • Can I buy vouchers through the AWS Console and be billed for them alongside AWS Services?

    No, AWS does not sell vouchers directly. Vouchers are purchased through Xvoucher, a third party company, at the links above. 

  • Can vouchers be returned for credit or refund?

    Returns and refunds are not accepted. AWS Certification exam vouchers are purchased at an exam level—not for specific exams—which provides greater flexibility. For example, if you want 10 of your employees to take exams for Associate certifications, simply buy 10 Associate-level vouchers. They may then choose which certification exam they would like to take within the Associate certification level (either the Solutions Architect, Developer, or SysOps Administrator exam). You don't have to know of time ahead who will take which Associate exam.

  • How long will it take to receive access to purchased vouchers in the portal after an order is placed?

    Vouchers will be available immediately after purchase, if purchased by credit card. If purchased by wire, vouchers will be available when funds clear. If you purchase for yourself, vouchers codes will be provided on screen and in email. If you purchase for others, you will enter email addresses of recipients after purchasing, and recipients will receive the vouchers shortly afterward. 

  • When do vouchers expire? How long are they good for?

    AWS Certification exam vouchers for PSI and Pearson VUE will expire 12 months after purchase. Vouchers cannot be extended past their expiration date. Exams must be paid for, scheduled, and taken before the voucher expires. 

  • As an organization that buys hundreds of vouchers, can I get a report of which ones were redeemed and whether candidates passed their exams?

    Individuals assigned an Xvoucher administrator role by their organization will be able to assign vouchers to employees and have visibility into which vouchers have been used. We encourage candidates to share their certification status via their digital badge or e-certificate verification processes, but administrators will not otherwise be able to see exam results.  

  • Are vouchers applicable to beta exams, which are discounted?

    No, vouchers are not applicable for beta exams. 

  • Can vouchers be applied to other AWS services besides certification (e.g., applied to fees for classroom training or AWS services)?

    Vouchers can only be applied to AWS Certification exams. 

  • Is there bulk pricing for buying quantities of vouchers at a time?

    Voucher purchases of 250 or more in a single transaction qualify for a discount of 10%. 

  • Who is Xvoucher? Why is AWS using them?

    Xvoucher is a learning exchange system for selling and tracking a diverse set of learning products from many providers. With the launch of a second certification exam partner, AWS Training and Certification sought to provide flexibility for our customers and exam candidates to purchase online anytime vouchers that can be used to schedule certification exams with either delivery partner. 

  • How do I access my voucher?

    After a voucher has been assigned to you by your organization, you will receive an email with a voucher code specifically for either Pearson VUE or PSI (whichever is noted in the email). 

  • How do I redeem a voucher?

    You will receive your voucher code, good for either Pearson VUE or PSI testing centers, in an email. Each AWS Certification exam voucher will have a unique code assigned to it. Use this code at checkout when scheduling and paying for an AWS Certification exam.
