Do I need a DIALux Pro subscription for certification?

No, the exams only relate to features that are available in the free version of DIALux evo.

Are the exams held on-site or online?

All exams are online and can be taken at any time on our learning platform.

What requirements should I be aware of?

Make sure you have an active DIALux ID and please note that you must have at least DIALux evo 12 installed before you start the certification process.
