I want to appear for "SAS Certified Predictive Modeler Using SAS Enterprise Miner 13" certification exam. I am preparing for it on my own. Can I book this exam in Pearson Vue without attaending training through SAS or any of its ATCs? My current location is India.

I don't believe any of the SAS certifications mandate a training course by SAS corp. I am pretty sure that you can register for any exam without a proof of training. However, some exams may have prerequisites for example, you may not be able to register for a SAS certification such as "Advanced SAS Programming" without having proof of completing "Base SAS Certification". So, please check if there are any requirements for your exam.

It looks like the exam is only being given on certain days in Cary, NC or Toronto,ON or at the SAS Global Forum in Las Vegas. There is no mention on the website of the exam being offered outside of North America. You may want to contact SAS to see if there is any plans to make it available elsewhere.

The Predictive Modeling exam is not currently offered through PearsonVUE test centers. It is available at SAS locations and events. Many SAS country offices host the Predictive Modeling exam. I suggest that you reach out to our India training office by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to inquire about the options to take this exam in India.
