Microsoft Certification Exams, No Testing Center Required

proctored511739705Having options in life is usually a good thing. Do you want a cheeseburger or pizza for lunch? Water or sweet tea? And, if you’re going to take a Microsoft certification exam, do you prefer to take it at a Pearson VUE Authorized Test Center or in the comfort of your own home or office?

You now have more options with Microsoft’s announcement of its certification online proctored exams. Like others, they’re moving to the cloud, which means more convenience and easier access to IT services and applications, including the challenging Microsoft certification exams. You’ll be able to schedule and start a Microsoft exam within 15 minutes of registering!

In order to maintain the security and integrity of Microsoft exams and certifications, you’ll have to follow a rigorous set of protocols and security checks when taking the Microsoft certification exam online, which includes being recorded (audio/video) and prohibits note-taking and restroom breaks. In addition to those restrictions, you’ll go through an identity check and a work-area scan. Minimum technical workstation requirements, along with recommended test-taking environment standards, are provided. There are lots of details, so be sure to check out the notes and links below.

    I find it telling that for official Microsoft exams, a Surface Pro or for that matter any computer with a touch screen is prohibited. And, Local Admin rights are required to take an exam — some offices may have followed Microsoft’s advice – removing that right.

    Hey William, thanks for reading this post. In all honesty, I wasn’t sure what the restriction with the touchscreen is about. I’m assuming they can’t record/log the touchscreen actions on the device.

    Interesting, curious to hear from people who have done the online proctored exam and their experience…
