There is no limit to the number of Green Advantage Exams you may take, or the number of times you may take the same Green Advantage Exam. And, if you are eligible, VA will pay for Green Advantage Exams even if you fail them.
VA pays only the exam costs – $175 for each Green Advantage Exam. Reimbursement is issued after you submit proof of payment to VA. This approval is effective worldwide. Detailed information is available online in the VA Licensing and Certification Pamphlet.
