How to schedule your salesforce exam?

A Salesforce certification can be proof for an individual that they have achieved enough knowledge in a certain area to be considered proficient in it, and subsequently “certified” by Salesforce

Over time, they have become the number one customer relationship management (CRM) software in the world and now offer around 40+ certifications.

All the exams are tracked and scheduled through Webassessor, a cloud-based test development and delivery platform created by Kryterion, Inc. It requires registration to access exams, reminders, and results.

Know Your Test-Taker Style

The certification exam can be taken either Online from a location you choose or Onsite from a Kryterion-sponsored Testing Center.

Take the Salesforce Exam – ONLINE (Mostly chosen):

  • Take the exam remotely from your own personal or work computer
  • Proctored through a webcam
  • Requires installation of Sentinel Secure software
  • No scratch paper allowed during exam
  • Normally, taking the exam online would require you to have two webcams (one built-in webcam on the laptop and one external webcam), but due to COVID-19, the restrictions have been relaxed to accommodate more people. So as of December 1st, 2020, you are able to schedule an exam online with just your built-in webcam and forgo the external webcam requirement. Read the requirements fully in the future as this may change again. 

Take the Salesforce Exam – ONSITE:

  • Take exam from a Kryterion-sponsored Testing Center. There are many to choose from worldwide, so you can schedule your exam with a testing center that is closest to you
  • Proctored through cameras set up in testing room
  • Everything is ready for you, no need to worry about technical setup and installations
  • You are provided with scratch paper

Sentinel and Online Exam Set-Up

Prior to taking the exam online, you will be instructed to download Sentinel, Webassessor’s security software. Sentinel will do a facial recognition scan and have that information logged to verify you each time an exam is taken online. Once registered, under the My Assessments tab, below the steps to installing Sentinel, there will be sections: Scheduled Exams, In-Progress Exams, and Completed Exams. 

The sections log the information of every exam purchased and when they were scheduled. If you find out that you are unable to attend and take an exam, Webassessor does allow you to reschedule for another time depending on whether you’re scheduled to take the test onsite or online. 

An onsite exam may be rescheduled for free 72 hours before the scheduled test time. There will be a fee charged for any changes made within 72 hours. Online exams can be rescheduled free of charge anytime. At one point in time, I  unexpectedly had to miss my exam time and logged back in as soon as possible to check the status. Luckily, a missed exam within a couple of hours that is held online comes with no additional cost or fees to reschedule.
