Scheduling your exam:

Candidates have two options for taking ABC certification exams. You have the option to take your exam at a Prometric Test Center or at a remote location of your choice. By choosing a remote proctored exam, you will provide a computer with a camera, microphone and a reliable internet connection, and you are assuming responsibility for any interruptions, which may void your exam.

Prometric Testing Center
