GIAC Certifications FAQ’s
Students can add a GIAC Certification exam attempt to their SANS course purchase either during the registration process, or through their SANS Account dashboard up until thirty days after the completion of their in-person, Simulcast, or Live Online course. For OnDemand orders, students have until ninety days after the registration date to add the GIAC Certification exam attempt bundle.
The deadline to complete the GIAC Certification exam attempt is four months from the completion of the in-person, Simulcast, or Live Online course. For OnDemand orders, the deadline to complete the GIAC Certification exam attempt is the same as the online training deadline.

- Log in to your SANS Account and click the "My Orders" link in your dashboard
- Select "Add Available Bundled Items to Your Order" and submit your payment information to complete your purchase
For OnDemand orders, you will receive access to the training and exam when you manually start the course from your account, or automatically within 14 days of payment. For in-person or LiveOnline training, you will receive access to the exam 7-10 days after the conclusion of your training event.
