First, we'd like to let all of our customers know that we are not shutting down our business or taking time off during the closures. Our contracted questions writers work from home and are responsible for their own health. We are continuously writing new questions for exams dispite the efforts of government to threaten and coerse people into not working.
You contractors are the backbone of the independent labor force in the United States. Who else is going to fix, build and design all the infrastructure we use every day? YOU ARE NEEDED! Try hard not to get discouraged!
All testing centers will require masks. Some will allow gloves. All will make you prove that you’re not hiding test answers unders your PPEs. Be prepared to have your temperature taken and asked medical questions about your state of health.
CAUTION: Do not volunteer any medical information at the test center or on any forms!
For example: PSI is e‑mailing a questionnaire that you are required to fill out before you take your exam. You will be asked general questions about where you’ve been and if you’ve been around infected people. We advise that you read these heath questions BEFORE you schedule your exam so that you don’t have to waste time and money rescheduling. Be sure to read the health screening documents that you provider publishes on their web site.
A majority of in-person locations are resuming exams on June 1st. When a location shows “TBD”, this usually means that they are on hold until state government allows them to open facilities again -OR- they haven’t figured out how to implement all of the precautionary procedures at the specific location (i.e., sanitizing everything you come in contact with in the room).
The list of OPEN exam locations can be accessed by first clicking on the button below. Then, click on the link for “View a full listing of test site closures”. Choose your country to view testing locations by city name.
IMPORTANT: Find the link to "FAQ Document". This will list the COVID screening proceedures you will need to follow before and during the exam.
From the information posted on the page linked below, Pearson is not maintaining a detailed list of open facilities. They expect you to contact them first at (877) 234-6082 to determine if you need pre-approval. If not, you can ask about a specific exam location being open. They’ll probably have alternate locations you can choose from.
Pearson VUE has very detailed rules about face masks and being tested for the virus. You must read their information page carefully BEFORE you show up for an exam. See “Health and Safety Requirements...”
Please see the linked PDF document on their web page titled "in-center procedures" in the paragraph discussing a May 1st openings. This document lists very specific screening procedures for their exam locations.
If you click on the navigation button at the top of the page linked below labeled “COVID-19 UPDATE”, you see a link to "Site Openings" where testing sites are listed by state and city.
If your state does not use a third party testing company, your exam is probably administered by a state licensing agency. We advise that you wait to contact them until 10 to 30 days has passed after your state governor has announced that government offices will re-open.
The states doing their own testing include: California, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
