I would not do this, I’m pretty sure they’re absolutely going to audit that. It’s more than the receipt threshold, that’s for sure, so you’d have to submit receipts basically proving you’ve taken it more than once and charged it.

I’ve already ran all 4 without any receipt etc. which is what makes me wonder if I should yolo and send another one.

You mean the reimbursement for taking the exams? This would not fly. You may get approved for now but will
Be flagged and you have to payback the extra claimed. I sent the reimbursement before passing all exams, they paid me the fees and then asked to payback since I had not passed the last exams.

The fact that ur asking this makes me extra weary of your morals and ethics. So yikes. And as an auditor? Double yikes. 😪

I’ve worked in LA in media production since 2010. I worked as a lighting designer for the first several years, after a slew of on set injuries I switched to doing data asset mgmt for a studio talk show for 3 years. I managed several system upgrades and did repairs and trouble shooting on high end hardware. It was extremely solitary work that was a bad fit. I got my python coding cert last year and want to switch to something higher paying and more collaborative with safe conditions & hours.
