Certification Testing

How Do I Register for my Exam?

Testing companies maintain test center schedules. Since testing appointments vary in duration, seat availability can only be determined during the scheduling process.

For all other PearsonVUE exams:

  1. Go to PearsonVue
  2. Select your program (e.g., CompTIA) or select “A to Z list of all programs”
  3. Explore the test program’s page for exam-specific information.
  4. Sign/Log in or create an account to schedule your exam.

Project Management Institute (PMI) Exams:

Testing for all PMI exams (including the PMP) is now available for scheduling at PearsonVUE. Prior to scheduling, candidates must complete the PMI Certification Process. Click here for more information and detailed instructions.


Other testing sites authorized to deliver your exam will be listed during the scheduling process.
