I AM a subscribed desktop ProAdvisor. My program is $549 (?) per year because I also support Enterprise. And I STILL CAN"T FIND THE TEST. Please answer the question asked and quit making assumptions.
Hi there, KathyS296.
I'm here with some clarification to provide regarding the QuickBooks Desktop ProAdvisor training modules.
Effective December 31, 2018, we have discontinued the certification exam due to low demand and engagement from the ProAdvisor community. Rest assured, you're still recognized as a ProAdvisor and can access all the features provided by QuickBooks.
For more information about this, I recommend following this article: Frequently Asked Questions about ProAdvisor Certification
I hope this clears up everything. Keep me posted if you have further questions, or if there's anything else I can do for you.
I have the same question. I'm not concerned so much that the certification has been discontinued, but I need to learn how to use QB Desktop. Where is the training? I purchased the package specifically for the training. I've confirmed that my account has access to the Desktop training. All I can find is the Online training.

Hope it helps.
@RoseMarjorieA for us US users your second link is useless as it goes to the UK Pro Advisor site. Becoming a desktop Pro Advisor in the UK is free while in the US still to my knowledge demands the yearly membership at a minimum of $349 before one can train and take the desktop exams. Other links you posted go round in circles and end up ONLY talking about the ONLINE Pro Advisor program.
Until you can combine the overall Pro Advisor programs AND make Desktop Pro Advisor program just as cheap (free) as the online version you will not find me, a 20+ year veteran of QBDT paying for the privilege of being tested. (Would not surprise me in the least if my QB on floppies is older than over half the working staff at QB)
