How is my order ‘verified’ for accuracy?
CertNexus has implemented a quality management system throughout its Manufacturing and Distribution processes. As your order is prepared, the barcode on each product is scanned to ensure that both the correct product and quantities are being packed. This system is linked directly to the Sales Order in our operating system. Once scanned and verified, the product is placed directly into its shipping carton with the accompanying “pick slip”. Products are also weight verified from our systems to ensure that the calculated weight of the order matches the actual weight of the package being shipped.
What carriers are used?
FedEx is CertNexus’ preferred carrier, however, deliveries may also be shipped via UPS & DHL (International Shipments only) when you use your own carrier account. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. if you want to use your own carrier account.
Note: CertNexus waives its delivery responsibility when a customer’s carrier account is utilized.
Where does CertNexus ship?
CertNexus ships to all U.S. and worldwide locations which are in accordance with the US Export Compliance Regulations. For any questions, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-456-4677.
FedEx Ground delivers packages to 100% of business addresses in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. FedEx Air deliveries are available to all U.S business addresses, Puerto Rico and the majority of worldwide locations.
Note: CertNexus waives its “delivery responsibility” when shipping to a residential address. To ensure the safe arrival of your package, please include “signature required” in the shipping instructions box upon Checkout.
How are shipping charges calculated?
Shipping charges are calculated based upon the weight of your order, selected shipping method, and ship to address. You can change the ship to address to view additional shipping costs.
U.S. sales tax charges are estimated based on the shipping address for each order. CertNexus currently charges sales tax for any shipment within NY and VA. Tax charges vary by product depending on the state rates or rules for those products.
For international orders, the recipient of the order is responsible for paying duties and taxes into their country for any order shipped outside of the United States.
Shipping rates are determined by the carrier and passed onto the customer. It should be noted that the rates do increase yearly.
If I ordered a Digital Book, when will I Receive my Access Key?

What if I forgot my Username and Password on the Choice Platform?
There is a “Forgot Password” and “Forgot Username” link on the Homepage of the platform to reset your information live on the platform.
Can I cancel/change my order?
We have streamlined our processes to receive, process, and ship your products quickly and accurately. Because of this improvement, sales orders cannot be changed once they are submitted.

When do I receive RMA credit?
RMA credit memos are generated when the books are received back into CertNexus inventories and are only approved for the books received. All returned materials are inspected and credit may be refused for any materials that are not in an acceptable condition. For electronic products, once the product has been checked for redemption and de-activated, a credit memo will be generated.
What if I need to return a product because of a defect?
CertNexus is proud to have one of the highest quality standards in the business. If a quality issue prevents you from using any of our products in their intended manner, contact Customer Service at 1-800-456-4677. Our quality assurance group will address your immediate training requirement needs, and will assist you with replacing the impacted items.
Note: Every quality claim gets logged into our quality assurance database and is assigned a QA number. This will be used to track the short-term and the long-term corrective actions used on your issue. If requested, a copy of the completed QA can be released for your review.
How do I submit a shipping claim?
Our service goal is that every order arrives undamaged and on time – every time. We support this goal with one of the best shipping claim policies in the business. With the exception of extreme weather or emergency situations, if we cause you to suffer a late, damaged, or incomplete delivery, we will promptly work with you to evaluate the issue and determine the appropriate support action. To submit a claim call Customer Service at 1-800-456-4677 within two business days of the delivery receipt.
Note: While CertNexus prepares and packages all shipments to prevent damage, sometimes accidents happen and damage can occur while in transit. Upon delivery make sure to inspect the package. If your shipment is visibly damaged, note all details with the driver before signing for the shipment, then contact CertNexus Customer Service. If the damage isn’t noticed until after delivery, contact CertNexus Customer Service within two business days of receipt so a damage claim can be placed with the carrier. Keep all packaging and products for carrier review.
Note: Photos of damaged products and packaging are required for all Shipping Claims.
When will I receive an Invoice?

What if I would like a paper invoice?

A self-fulfillment portal for electronic copies, as well as, previous invoices is tentatively expected 3/1/17 for your convenience. Copies of the invoice for an order can be downloaded on the Corporate Order History Link on the My Account Page.
Are your trainers all booked and teaching other classes? Do they lack the specific certifications required to teach authorized partners’ program materials? Do you need a trainer with specific skills? CertNexus partners with The Training Associates (TTA), the world’s largest provider of contract training professionals, to fulfill instructor requests. Please contact John Laverdure at John@thetrainingassociates.com with the class name, date, and location, for any instructor requests.

Q: What is the definition of final courseware?
A: Final courseware carries a revision number of 1.0 or higher. Final courseware has been through CertNexus’ full development, production, and proofing process. This includes a test class to check instructional validity, as well as several editorial and quality phases.
Q: What does it mean if the revision number is greater than 1.0?
A: There has been some change to the courseware since the initial publication. Check the Revision Notes field on the product’s Revision Information tab for a description of recent revisions.
Q: What is the definition of Beta courseware?
A: Beta courseware carries a .95 revision number. Generally, this means that the test class has been completed, but the full production and proofing process has not. Though the material is teachable, it may not have been edited or key checked and will have a variety of content discrepancies from the final version. Some of the digital CHOICE components, such as assessments, may not be present. If you purchase and deploy CHOICE keys to Beta content, rest assured that the digital assets on the CHOICE course page (including the eBooks) will automatically be updated when final is released (as they are for any content revision for an existing CHOICE product).
Q: What does “Coming Soon” mean?
A: The course is actively in development, but is not ready to be released as Beta. A draft outline will be included when it is available.
Q: What is a prerelease evaluation?
A: Prerelease evaluation-only materials may be provided in electronic PDF format for certain courses where content is present in a draft state, but has not been tested and approved for Beta release. The pre-release is intended for early customer review and preliminary trainer preparation only. It is not intended for use in a training event. PowerPoint slide decks and data files are not provided.
