COVID-19 Update

All testing centers within the United States and Canada have closed for a period of 30 days, starting on March 17, 2020 through April 16, 2020.

This is how the change will affect you:

  • All candidate exam sessions scheduled between March 18 and April 16 have been cancelled.
  • Candidates can currently schedule into any open sessions after April 16th.

Although testing at our site has been temporarily suspended, we encourage you to continue to submit your application for processing.  Application processing will continue throughout this time and you will be able to schedule your exam into any open session after April 16th.

As further developments occur we will keep you updated.
