Salesforce.com offers a global network of Kryterion sponsored testing centers. To locate the center nearest you visit http://kryteriononline.com/Locate-Test-Center. Testing centers set their own schedules for when salesforce.com 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.

Online proctoring allows you to take salesforce.com certification exams remotely from your own computer. The exams will be monitored by a proctor through a webcam. Online proctored exams are offered daily, excluding major U.S. holidays and exam system down-time. Advance registration is not required for online proctoring; you can register and launch an exam on the same day; however, if you are completing an exam through online proctoring for the first time, please allow extra time to prepare your computer.
Before scheduling an online proctored exam, it is strongly recommended that you review all of the necessary requirements and the test taking policies here: http://certification.force.com/pkb/articles/Public_KB/Online-Proctoring-Completing-Your-Exam-Remotely.
