It can be convenient sitting at home taking a certification exam online. No going out, driving to a testing center, finding parking, and sitting in a room that usually feels too cold surrounded by other people taking their exams. I always end up in a room with someone who is sick and then I get sick.
It can also be intimidating if you have never done it before. I have taken three exams this way through APMG. My most recent one was this morning on the day I wrote and published this post – the AgilePgM certification.
Other organizations may do things slightly different, but here I will explain how APMG handles the online certification exams using ProctorU.
Is there a specific time that you are required to take the test?
