    Hello!
    I'm a little bit confused about the Unity Certified User: Programmer program. So I can buy the learning course here: https://www.gmetrix.com/Products/Details/Unity-Certified-User-Courseware
    Then I can make a online Unity Certified User: Programmer Practice Exams here: https://www.gmetrix.com/Products/Details/Unity-Certified-User-Programmer-PracticeExams
    Okay...
    But where can I really make the test to get certified? I only found a way to buy a voucher for the certification (https://shop.certiport.com/product-p/12006407.htm), but is it possible to make it online or do I need to drive to a location?

    That I need different accounts from different websites makes it not better to understand how it works...
    https://www.gmetrix.com/ -> Buy stuff
    https://www.gmetrix.net/ -> Redeem stuff
    https://www.certiport.com/ -> Do the "really" certification?

    I would like to hear where I can make the really certification and if I can make it online or do I need to go to a location?

    Thanks

    Wait. Am I hearing this right that the programmer certification can not be taken online? It may be out of the question for me, then.

    I am pretty sure you take the test at Pearson VUE site though. I have used them in the past to get IT certifications and it is a straight forward process. I am sure things are little different due to Covid but usually, you sign up, and show up at your local test site (usually approved third-party test centers with a proctor on site) and take the test. Depending on the test (I think most test do) they will let you know if you passed or failed when you are done.

    In any case, I too find all this information is confusing. Links seem to send you to different sites for learning materials. I remember Unity used to offer study material on unity.com. Is this not the case any more?

    I am also confused about the prerequisites. I am looking at the Programmer path, do you need to do certifications in order (because it doesn't say that) to do the next? How do I prove that I meet the prerequisite? Or can I simply jump in at any point (even expert) and hope for the best?
