Description All proctored certification exams can be scheduled as an onsite or online proctored exam. 
Onsite Proctored offers a global network of Kryterion sponsored testing centers. To locate the center nearest you visit Testing centers set their own schedules for when certification exams are offered, so availability can vary greatly among testing centers. 
Typically, exam registration is required at least 24-72 hours in advance; however, we recommend that you register one week in advance to ensure your preferred date and time is available.
