The Project Management Institute is moving to Pearson VUE to provide the best exam experience possible. All certification examinations worldwide (except China) will be run through Pearson VUE to provide:

  • Online proctoring for PMI-ACP® and CAPM®: Candidates can now test from their home or office for increased convenience and ease-of-access.  No other certifications are scheduled for online proctoring at this time.

Transition Timeline 

There will be a period of overlap where scheduling and testing will be available with both Prometric and Pearson VUE.  Most candidates who have already scheduled their exams will be unaffected by this change.

Next Steps for Candidates Who Already Scheduled through Prometric

Candidates who have already scheduled a test with Prometric on or before 30 June 2019 can keep that appointment and test as planned, regardless of the certification exam. For those candidates who have already scheduled with Prometric on or after 1 July 2019, we will work with Prometric and Pearson VUE to have their test appointment moved to Pearson VUE.
