Find the testing option that works best for you

AWS Certifications validate AWS Cloud knowledge, skills, and expertise. Candidates take an exam to earn one of our Foundational, role-based, or Specialty certifications. To maintain our high bar for earning an AWS Certification, our exams are taken in a proctored, timed environment. We offer flexible, convenient options for taking exams so you can select what works best for you.

We offer AWS Certification exams globally through our test delivery provider Pearson VUE. We encourage you to identify the most convenient testing option for you based on where you would like to take your exams and any specific accommodations you may need.

Online Proctoring

Online proctoring is a testing environment that allows you to take an exam from any private space, such as your home or office. You use your own computer for the exam, and converse with a proctor who remotely monitors your exam via both a screen-sharing application and your webcam. Most exam appointments are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We recommend scheduling your exam in advance so you’re more likely to find a time that's convenient for you.

Online proctoring is available for all AWS Certification exams from our test delivery providers Pearson VUE. Review the information below for details on testing options available:

Testing Centers

Testing centers are facilities operated independently from AWS that offer in-person proctoring as well as the technical equipment required for an exam, such as a computer that meets system and security requirements. You will use the testing center computer to take your exam, and on-site staff will assist you with checking in and storing your belongings. Appointment availability varies by testing center.

To find a testing center near you, search availability by ZIP Code.

Note: Some testing centers are currently closed based on local health guidance. Please refer to information from Pearson VUE to learn more and to confirm the latest health and safety measures.
