The Status Of Global Test Delivery Is Changing Rapidly: Stay On Top Of It As Pearson VUE Administers Exams on a Limited Basis

After temporarily closing all testing centers due to the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus), CAMICB’s test administration partner, Pearson VUE, has begun to administer exams at some testing centers on a limited basis. Some centers are reopening with increased health and safety measures, while others remain closed in accordance with guidance from local governments and health authorities. 

Based on recommendations from the CDC and World Health Organization, Pearson VUE centers that have reopened are implementing a number of health and safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. All exam candidates are required to wear face masks while testing, while the use of disposable gloves is optional. Candidates are required to maintain a six-foot distance from others in accordance with social distancing guidelines. Pearson VUE has also implemented a strict cleaning regimen at all test centers that includes sanitizing check-in equipment and individual workstations after each use. 

CMCA candidates whose appointments have been cancelled or rescheduled due to test center closures will receive an email notification from Pearson VUE. The notification will provide instructions for scheduling a new appointment. Candidates may reserve an appointment or reschedule an existing appointment by logging in to Pearson VUE’s Online Scheduling Portal. ​

Recognizing that test center closures may interrupt testing plans for CMCA candidates, CAMICB has extended the yearlong exam deadline for candidates that are most affected by this change. All CMCA candidates whose authorization to test expires prior to August 1, 2020 have been granted a deadline extension to August 1. Candidates with an extended authorization to test have been sent a confirmation email from CAMICB with further details. 

Pearson VUE will be posting all updates regarding test center closures and other containment measures on their COVID-19 Update webpage. Likewise, CAMICB will use our Coronavirus Update page to post all new information regarding changes to regular certification activities. 

Please direct all questions to CAMICB office operations have shifted to a fully remote system and staff may be unable to monitor and respond to incoming phone calls in a timely manner.
