Frequently asked questions
How is the exam administered?
Zendesk utilizes a testing platform called Webassessor which was created by a company called Kryterion. Depending on the exam, you will have the option to test online, using a combination of biometric software and one-on-one proctoring, or on-site, through a network of 900+ worldwide testing centers.
What kind of set-up do I need if I take the exam online?
Zendesk allows the use of either an external camera or your built-in, internal computer camera. To get a better feel for the online testing experience and/or to test your equipment, please leverage Kryterion's online testing guide. This guide contains chat, talk and email support options should you run into any issues getting set-up to test online.
