No, it's not possible to take the exam without going through the associated training course. We strive to ensure all learners are adequately prepared to successfully complete the exam and achieve certification.
Our training courses are specifically designed to provide you with the skills, knowledge, and experience required to adapt and overcome today's cyber security challenges. We believe that comprehensive training is an integral part of your success and it's essential to fully understand and practice the concepts before attempting the exam.
If you have never gone through our training before, you can find below a few training options that can lead you to achieving a certification. The time you will need to allocate and the type of certification you can achieve differs, so choose the one that best suits your needs:
- Learn One subscription - consists of 1 year access to the training and 2 exam attempts for your chosen main course
- Course & Cert exam bundle - includes 90 days of training and 1 exam attempt for a main course
- Learn Unlimited subscription - includes 1 year access to all of our training and unlimited exam attempts to the corresponding courses (OSCP, OSDA, OSWA, OSWP, KLCP, OSWE, OSEP, OSED & OSMR)
We highly recommend visiting What's included in your library FAQ as it contains all the inclusions for our products.

- With the Course & Cert exam bundle, you can purchase an exam retake if you fail or your initial exam attempt expires.
- With the Learn One subscription, you have the flexibility to purchase an exam retake for your chosen primary course, in case you fail and have used up all the included exam attempts.
- With the Learn Unlimited subscription, regrettably, once your subscription expires, you won't be able to purchase an exam retake. During the duration of your active Learn Unlimited subscription, you have the benefit of unlimited exam attempts until you successfully pass the certification exam or until your subscription period concludes.
Note that all exams are subject to a cooling off period.
