You can take the exam at either a Pearson VUE test center or at a home, office or work location using the Pearson OnVue remote proctored solution. When registering for the exam, you will have the option of selecting your location to take the exam.

Is the VCTA exam proctored or non-proctored?
The VCTA exam is a proctored exam, meaning that as you take the exam, there will be a proctor monitoring the exam, to both protect the integrity of the exam as well as validate that the candidate is answering the questions on their own and not leveraging outside help or resources.

Is the VCTA a prerequisite for the VCP?
No. The VCP exams are for a higher-level, more advanced level of certification, aligned to an administrator job role. Experienced candidates may earn the VCP without first earning the VCTA.
