VMware have announced that remote exam testing will be available from 20th April via Pearson Vue. This is for all exams except for lab based VCAP Deploy exams which will come at a later date.
Remote exam testing involves all the same security checks as being at a test center. You show ID, take pictures of your room, cannot have materials to hand and are recorded via webcam the entire time.
Having taken remotely proctored exams for other technologies, the convenience of it is hugely valuable. Being able to now sit these for VMware is a huge plus.
