The secondary code I received is not applying the discount to the courses and I received an error when applying it

After applying the primary code to SplunkWork+, you will need to allow up to 72 hrs to for your account to be synced with ACT Now Education. This happens on Splunks backend. Splunk will email you when your account is ready to go. This is also mentioned in the guide. Sometimes you receive the email before 72hrs.

All this to say is that you need to be patient and wait for Splunk to email you that your account is ready. If it has been longer than 72 hrs, then at that point you should email education@splunk.com notifying them that it has been more than 72 hrs and you have yet to receive the email stating your account has been synced with the organization ACT Now Education.

I completed all the courses, how do I apply for a voucher?

Request for Vouchers
Exam vouchers are available exclusively at select ACT Now Orientations or through our ACT Now Education Cohorts. Direct Messages or Emails are not an option for requesting and obtaining vouchers. No exceptions!

Interpretation: DO NOT request a voucher. ACT Now Education will only provide vouchers at select Orientations. Those Orientations will be announced in the ACT Now Education Facebook group. The vouchers will ONLY be provided to select individuals that meet the conditions of that Orientation and only a certain number of vouchers will be provided.
