VMware Certification is pleased to announce that remote proctoring of its exams, delivered by Pearson VUE, will be available starting April 20, 2020. Remote proctoring allows you to take the exam from ANY secure location, and will be a permanent offering, regardless of the availability of in-person testing centers going forward. The cost per exam remains the same.


With artificial intelligence combined with live monitoring, these new exam options offer the most up-to-date technology, including enhanced security features such as: face-matching technology, virtual ID verification, session monitoring, browser lockdown, recording, and more. In order to take an exam remotely, you will need to have a web cam, show ID, have your camera scan the room, and be in a secure, quiet location. This is still a proctored exam, with a live proctor. As with in-person events, you will not be able to use any materials to take the exam.


After a simple download and system check, you’ll be up and running quickly, so that you can easily get to what really matters: the test. When registering for your upcoming exam, simply select the remote proctoring option to choose this convenient new test-taking option. You can see the full VMware Certification and Badging testing catalog here.


Due to country regulations, remote proctoring is not available in China, Cuba, Iran, Japan, North Korea, Slovenia, South Korea, and Sudan. Candidates who reside in these countries will not be able to register for an OnVUE exam.


All exams will be available for remote proctored delivery on April 20, 2020 except for the VCAP Deploy lab-based exams; with a different underlying delivery infrastructure, they take a bit more work and will be available soon.
