Online testing for CompTIA

OnVUE logo

Your certification journey starts here.

Take an exam online from the comfort of your home or office.

The OnVUE experience: Check out the information below to start your online testing experience off on the right foot.

Technical Requirements

Prior to taking an OnVUE exam please closely read the technical requirements that must be met to help ensure a successful exam delivery.
 

Resolution, Scaling settings and minimum requirements

In addition to meeting system test requirements for minimum screen resolution, be sure to review and confirm your display settings for scaling, prior to checking in and launching your exam. Scale settings should be set to 100% (for users running Windows) or default (for Mac users).

If your screen settings meet the minimum resolution settings but scale settings are set above 100% it is likely that the exam content will not render properly on-screen, causing a less than desirable experience during delivery of your CompTIA exam.

To avoid delays and added stress during your testing appointment, complete the system test prior to the start of your exam appointment.
 

Internet Bandwidth

Taking your exam online with OnVUE requires a significant amount of internet bandwidth based on system requirements for both video and audio. If you’re in a household with more family members working and learning from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, please schedule your exam when there will be minimal conflicts for internet usage. We encourage you to ask others to avoid use of the internet while you take your exam, and to use a wired connection if possible.
