Do all tests need certification exams?

All,

I am deploying to Kuwait for a military operation and I wanted to bring some books to study and get some certifications while I am there. I talked to a friend who said he got some certifications over there, but I'm not sure how he did it without taking the tests at a test center (I tried to find out of there is testing centers on military bases over there and it looks like there is not). My questions is, can I get any of the following certifications without having to take a proctored test (ie. I can take the exam online without having to be at a facility):

CEH
SSGB/SSBB
CCNP/CCDP
CISSP
PMP
MSCA

Any information would be greatly beneficial.

    I'd be shocked if there weren't a test center at your base in Kuwait. AAS? If so, that place was huge.

    Have you checked: https://vss.pearsonvue.com/VSSReports/ActiveUSMilitarySiteLocator.cfm to see if there are any test centers for the exam you want?

    There should be plenty of testing centers and I'm sure there will be something available where you are stationed.

    I looked on PearsonVue (where I normally register for tests) and I do not see any on the list (at least for Cisco exams). Link below:

    I also emailed [email protected] asking them if they had any Kuwait and they said

    "
    We do have one test center currently active in Kuwait and also a new one currently being installed. The new one is being installed at Camp Arifjan and will be located at UMUC. I do not have an ETA at this time."

    Is there another test center other than PearsonVue for these tests that I have listed?
