Hello, I'm trying to schedule my cert exam, when I click on Schedule I receive an error saying

https://examregistration.microsoft.com/error?s=ERROR_CANDIDATE_NOT_FOUND

We can’t access your Microsoft profile to schedule your exam. To resolve the issue, try these steps in this order and return to the exam page to schedule the exam:
Use Internet Explorer (version 9 or above) or Edge
Clear all cache and cookies
Use the InPrivate option in Internet Explorer or Edge
If the issue persists, you can contact Pearson VUE Support to schedule the exam. If you still need help, please click Ask a question on the Microsoft Certification Program support forum.

I've chatted with a Pearson VUE agent and she said:

    Microsoft Certification Program is supported on their own forums. I'd try asking for help with exam scheduling in dedicated forums here. (Participate\Ask A Question)
    Exams/Exam Registration/General Registration Questions
    Exams /Exam Registration and Scheduling/Scheduling with Pearson Vue
    Pearson VUE Customer service
    Pearson VUE contact / chat
