Microsoft and Pearson VUE are on a mission together to make our certifications more convenient and accessible. Starting today, if you are a U.S. resident (and if you’re not stay tuned—they’ll be expanding soon), you can take dozens of MCP and MTA exam from the comfort of your home or office through a process called online proctoring by Pearson VUE. You can find the press release here.
Online proctored exams are the exact same exams that we offer in onsite testing centers. What’s different is that the exam is administered by a remote proctor who will supervise you via webcam and microphone while you take your test. You can take an online proctored exam at home, at work, or at any other location that meets our hardware, software, security and environment requirements. (There are quite a few: you can view the full list here.)
