If you’re preparing to take a Marketo Engage certification test, you may be wondering what it’s like to take it remotely from your own home. I’ve compiled advice that I’ve gotten from other Marketo Engage Champions as well as my own experience taking the Adobe Certified Expert-Marketo Engage Business Practitioner (formerly Marketo Certified Expert) exam last year. I hope this helps set you up for success in your journey becoming Marketo Engage certified!
PSI vs Examity
There are two companies that provide remote administration of Marketo exams: PSI and Examity. PSI uses their own software to administer the exam. You can’t download or test your connection ahead of time, which can cause delays when you are ready to take your exam. Examity uses remote meeting software to proctor the exam (which you probably already have installed on your computer). This means you can test ahead of time and jump right into the exam when you log in.
I used Examity for my exam last year, and this is the provider recommended by many other Marketo Champions. Here are some tips and tricks for preparing for taking the test in Examity.
Remote Administration via Examity
First off, you need to be able to download remote meeting software on your computer—if you work at a company with tight Information Security policies, check with your IT department ahead of time. My proctor used GoToMeeting, although other people have reported that theirs was on Zoom. Since they’ll be monitoring you remotely, your computer needs a working camera and microphone.
