How does a second exam delivery provider affect me?
Your AWS Certification exam experience should mostly remain the same, with an increase in availability and accessibility. You can now take your exam at either PSI test centers or Pearson VUE test centers.

Are there any differences between the test center experiences?
Both PSI and Pearson VUE strive to offer consistent experiences across their own network of test centers, and the experience at a test center should be largely the same, regardless of the vendor you scheduled with. Some test centers will request an electronic signature and take your photo during the check-in process.

Are the exams the same with both PSI and Pearson VUE?
The exams delivered, including the exam length and passing standards, will be the same with both vendors.
