The COQS recertification exam is 80 questions and 2.5 hours. We highly encourage those sitting for the exam to complete WellSky’s online certification preparatory course prior to taking the exam. After purchase of the exam, users will be instructed to log into the website, upload proof of current certification, and then select a time and date to complete the exam. This exam is completed online using an external online proctoring service. Instructions will be emailed to all users after exam purchase.It is the responsibility of the certification candidate to take the required preparatory steps to sit for the expert level certification exam. Educational preparation through WellSky is not required prior to taking the exam and a pass/ fail of the certification exam is not solely linked to WellSky OASIS education. We recommend experience and working knowledge of OASIS along with educational preparation prior to attempting the exam. Although we will work with all candidates to provide the best possible learning experience, environment, and opportunity to advance his/ her career through obtaining the distinguished certification, meeting the level of expertise required is solely the responsibility of the candidate.
