Pearson VUE’s advanced system administers exams on behalf of hundreds of businesses, boards and organizations around the globe through the world's largest most secure test center network. The system enables candidates to register and reschedule their tests online or through a Pearson VUE call center.
“We’re very excited about our new partnership with Pearson VUE”, said Steve Denegri, Chief Operating Officer with Tech901, “The Pearson VUE Testing System gives us the ability to embed a certification testing stage within each IT training program, which should help accentuate the degree of success that we achieve with each class training. This should translate to an even greater number of trained students who also hold industry certifications as they exit a Tech901 course, and this can only help our employer partners identify even more hirable job candidates.”
The list of certification tests available from test sponsors through the Pearson VUE system is continually growing. Test results are quickly transmitted back, ensuring the candidate’s certification status is promptly updated.
Ray Murray, Vice President - Business Development, Pearson VUE said, “We are proud to welcome Tech901 to the rapidly growing global network of Pearson VUE Authorized Test Centers. Together, we are providing even more candidates with the opportunity to obtain meaningful certifications and advance their careers.”
Pearson VUE delivery of exams has continued to increase rapidly in recent years, with the company delivering 10 million exams in 2011.
