Pearson VUE will first analyze the site request based on approved criteria. Sites that are hosted by educational institutions, such as community colleges and universities, are generally approved through Pearson VUE. These are sites that fit the criteria of PTCB’s large scale Pearson VUE Test Center approval in 2017. Some educational institutions and all other hosts are forwarded to PTCB for review before approval. PTCB considers factors such as distance to the nearest existing test center, public transportation available to existing test centers, and the number of open seats at existing test centers. If a new test center adds convenience for candidates and/or fills a regional gap in the existing test center map, the site is approved.
To initiate your request to become an authorized testing site, please contact Pearson VUE Channel Sales at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
