Test Center Closures Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus):
As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, our first priority is the health and safety for employees and candidates. Starting on Tuesday, March 17th – we are suspending test delivery at all U.S.- and Canada-based Pearson VUE-owned testing centers for 30 days until April 16th. As a result, most test appointments in this timeframe have been cancelled.
Pearson is regularly updating COVID-19 information on a dedicated webpage.
