Do you need to know your password for www.sans.org?

I was wondering if you log into the Sans.org site to take your exam at the testing center? Or do they just set everything up for you? I ask because my password for the site is not something easily to remember. I greatly increased the complexity and length of my account passwords since taking my first Sans Course. I use Keypass to keep track of my passwords, something I will not have access to at the testing center.
Still searching for the corner in a round room.

    No they do not ask you your password, it is only used for you.

    Thanks for chuckle.

    No, you don't need your SANS.org password, Pearson Vue's testing app will automatically log you into the testing site.
