Well, you ask someone "Hey, is the SCEA a good exam?" And that person says "Yeah, it's a great exam. I totally vouch for that exam." The person that says good things about the exam is the 'voucher.'
Dictionary.com - Vouch
Actually, to take the exam, you buy a 'Voucher' from Sun. You pay for the voucher, and then, using the id associated with the voucher, you go online and book your exam sitting through the "testing center's" website. You pick the time and location where you want to sit the exam, and when that's finished, the online tool says "what is your voucher id", and you type that in, and then you go and write your exam. The testing center then uses that 'voucher' id to get some $$$ from Sun to cover the cost of the testing, so you don't actually pay the testing center, Sun does, through the money you paid them for the voucher.
Is it a good system? Well, I'd 'vouch' for it.
