Exam Delivery Methods

SAE International currently supports exam delivery through three mechanisms:

  1. Test Center based delivery through Pearson VUE’s worldwide network of testing centers.
  2. OnVUE online proctoring allows you to sit the exam at your convenience at a suitable non test center location, while being watched by a remote invigilator through your webcam. Read more about OnVUE to learn about the process and decide if OnVUE is right for you.

Note: Writing utensils and paper are not allowed during OnVUE exams, but you will have the option to use the inbuilt OnVUE Whiteboard feature while taking the exam online.

If you are uncomfortable with any of the OnVUE requirements, we recommend you schedule an in-person exam at a Pearson VUE Test Center.
