While there are an increasing number of online certification exams possible, the majority of exam locations are still in the physical world. Online testing might be considered more convenient than going through the trouble of finding the examination center and taking the time to do the actual exam. However, if the vendor you have selected requires that you travel to a particular location at a particular time to take the exam, there are easy ways to find out what the scheduling is. Usually, if you have found information about your desired certification on the Internet, there is information that corresponds to all concerns about test taking. For instance, if you had selected a Cisco certification, information on the Web site which advertised the Cisco training will update you as to where, when, how, and how long your test is to be, as well as peripheral considerations, such as what to know and how to study. Many vendors have nearby locations to suit your convenience, while others might require more extensive traveling. Many of these sites have toll free numbers listed on their sites, which you can call for more in-depth, live responses to your location questions. Also, there are conventions in designated cities that are devoted to mass testing for computer certification. Information about these sites is posted on the Internet as well, and can inform you about the types of certification available, as well as the times and places. Consult a computer certification professional for more information.
