Navigate your testing journey with ease

Whether you're planning to take your exam in a test center or online, your testing experience starts on your exam program’s homepage.

Ready, set, test

You’ve done the prep — now you get to prove yourself. 

From driving skills to dentistry, real estate to risk management, and so much more, there’s a certification or license for just about anything.

But no matter which specialty you’re pursuing, the journey concludes with an exam. And that comes with a lot of decisions. For example:

  • When can you test?
  • Will you take your exam in a test center or online?
  • Do you need study aids and prep material?
  • What should you know about general testing rules?
  • Are there any program-specific policies?

It might feel a bit overwhelming. But don’t worry. It’s all here.

And whether it’s your first, fifth or fortieth exam, we’ll help you successfully navigate every point on the testing journey.

Get started on your program’s homepage.

The first stop you’ll want to make is your exam program’s homepage. Use the search bar above or the A to Z list to find it.

Once there, you can:

  • See which exams are available
  • Login to or create an account
  • Search for a local test center – or see if you can take your exam online

  • Schedule, reschedule or cancel appointments
  • Explore exam prep materials

Schedule your exam

Find the best testing environment for you.

When you’re ready to schedule your exam, you’ll also need to decide where (and sometimes how) to take your exam. With nearly 6,000 test centers to choose from in more than 180 countries, chances are you’ll find a location nearby. Some exams can even be taken online, from the convenience of your own home. Check your program page to find out if this is an option you can choose.

Should you take your exam online?

Online-proctored exams have their advantages, but they also have unique requirements. If your program offers it, see what you’ll need to consider before deciding if the online option is right for you.
