In order to maintain the integrity of the testing process and the value of AlienVault® certifications, all exam deliveries are proctored. All test-takers may use online proctored testing. The AlienVault USM Appliance Technician exam and the AlienVault Certified Security Engineer (ACSE) Recertification exams are only available through online proctored testing. However, first time ACSE and AVSE test-takers also have the option to use onsite proctored testing. No matter which option you choose, the exam format and content is the same.
If you need to reschedule your exam, you may do so on Webassessor at no additional cost. However, as noted during the registration process, reschedules are not permitted within 96 hours (4 days) of your scheduled exam time.
Kryterion offers you the ability to take AlienVault exams from your own computer. You’ll need to meet the system requirements, and you’ll need to have a webcam. You can use the webcam that's built into your computer, or a separate webcam.
