Welcome to Tutorials Dojo! In this article, we will guide you through the process of booking and taking your AWS certification exam online. This exciting development allows you to conveniently take your exam from the comfort of your own home or office. Let's dive in and explore the steps involved in scheduling your online exam.

To begin, log into your AWS certification account. Once logged in, navigate to the AWS Training & Certification section. Look for the "Upcoming Exams" tab and scroll down to find the list of eligible exams. You will see a comprehensive list that includes all the associate, professional, and specialty level exams, as well as the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam. Make sure to avoid selecting the official AWS practice exams unintentionally.

On the right side of the table, you will find two columns labeled "Schedule with PSI" and "Schedule with Pearson VUE." Search for the specific AWS exam you want to take and click on the associated scheduling link under the Pearson VUE column.

You will then be redirected to the Pearson VUE website. If the redirection takes more than 30 seconds, try clicking the "Force a login re-attempt" link in the Pearson VUE console. Once you're on the exam registration page, select the option to take the exam at home or in your office.

Before proceeding, it is recommended to run a system pre-check to ensure that your computer, network, microphone, internet speed, and webcam meet the necessary requirements. Click on the "Run Precheck" button to verify compatibility. If any issues are identified during the pre-check, you can troubleshoot and refer to the helpful tips provided.

After completing the pre-check, click on the "Next" button to proceed. Review and agree to the online exam policies to proceed further. Then, select your preferred language for the exam. If English is not your native language, you have the option to request an English as a Second Language (ESL) time extension, which provides an additional 30 minutes for the exam.

The following pages will guide you through the exam details, including the booking confirmation and the option to add consecutive appointments. Consecutive appointments allow you to schedule multiple exams to be taken one after another on the same day at the same testing center. Keep in mind that consecutive appointments can only be rescheduled or canceled individually.

If you encounter difficulties finding available time slots for consecutive appointments, several factors may contribute to this, such as limited time blocks at the test center or the total duration of the exams exceeding the center's operating hours. In such cases, you can try adjusting your exam schedule accordingly.

In the next part of this series, we will explore the process of preparing for your AWS online certification exam. Stay tuned for valuable tips and insights to help you succeed. Don't forget to subscribe to our channel for more AWS certification-related content.

Taking Your AWS Certification Exam Online: Part 2

Welcome back to Part 2 of our series on taking your AWS certification exam online. Now that you've successfully booked your exam, we'll guide you through the process of actually taking the exam from the comfort of your own space. Let's get started!

About 30 minutes before your scheduled exam time, make sure your workspace is clear and prepare by using the latest Pearson OnVUE app. Log in to your AWS certification account and click on the "Upcoming Exams" link. Select the specific exam you have booked, and you will be redirected to the Pearson VUE console.

On the Pearson VUE home page, you will see two lists: the "Open Online Exams" list and the "Recently Completed Online Exams" list. Locate the exam you are about to take and click the "Begin Exam" button. You will be provided with an access code that you need to enter into the OnVUE app.

Open the OnVUE app on your device and enter the access code along with your phone number. A text message will be sent to your phone, containing a link to the ProctorCam website. Follow the instructions and use your smartphone to upload all the required photos. Afterward, click the refresh button to start the exam.

If you encounter any issues while trying to take or upload photos on the ProctorCam website, try using a different mobile browser. Some permission issues may arise when your browser attempts to access your phone. iPhone users can try using Safari instead of Google Chrome, while Android users can switch to the default browser on their device.

The link provided by the ProctorCam website will allow you to capture and upload photos of yourself, your driver's license or passport, and your workspace from different angles. If your photos appear blurry, the system may ask you to retake them. Ensure that the identification document you are using has not yet expired.

Once you have submitted all the required photos, the app will prompt you to return to your computer and click the refresh button. Congratulations! You are now ready to begin your AWS exam. Before starting, make sure you are fully prepared, as once you proceed, you are not allowed to stand up or leave the room for a toilet break.

A proctor will appear shortly, so ensure that you have closed any other applications, including your web browser. In the rare event that your proctor is significantly late (20-30 minutes past your scheduled exam time), you can try closing the OnVUE app and repeating the check-in process.

We have received reports of instances where a Pearson VUE proctor did not show up on time. In such cases, restarting the check-in process eventually allowed the candidates to take their exams. It's important to note that drinking excessive amounts of fluids before the exam is not recommended, as restroom breaks are not permitted once the exam begins.

Stay focused and perform your best throughout the exam. Remember to follow the instructions provided by the proctor and adhere to all exam policies. We wish you success in your AWS certification journey!

That concludes Part 2 of our series. Stay tuned for the next installment, where we will explore essential exam strategies and tips to help you excel in your AWS certification exam.

Keep studying, and good luck!

Two hours before your exam, it's important to note that you cannot have any paper or pen on your desk. During the online exam in the OnVUE app, you will see a floating window with chat and whiteboard buttons. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to visualize the architecture or draw up your thoughts, you can click the whiteboard button to assist you. Additionally, if you need to communicate with your proctor, you can use the chat button to engage with them.
