*Candidates must successfully complete the practice materials to be eligible to take the final exam. Candidates not passing the final exam must wait at least one month before retesting. Reschedules and retests are not included in the cost of the program.

**The certification is valid for the current major release of Galaxy® (Galaxy 7) software. Significant changes within a major release may require the candidate to take a Gateway-provided continuing-education course to maintain their certification. In the event of such a change, the candidate will be notified and given six months to complete the course. Upon the next major release of Galaxy (Galaxy 8), a candidate already certified in the previous version can become certified in the new version by taking a Gateway-provided continuing-education course.
