Based on the latest health and safety information, continued government guidance, and the availability of our team of test center volunteers, Pearson VUE Testing Service has taken the following actions related their operations in the U.S. and Canada.

  • They have extended the temporary suspension of exam deliveries in US and Canada through April 30.
  • Candidates scheduled will receive a cancellation/reschedule notice.
  • Candidate appointment availability begins on May 1.

 Pearson VUE recognizes that the administering exams to certain medical and first responder candidates is vital in order for them to become licensed due to the shortage of medical personnel in fighting the virus. They have agreed that ARRT’s radiography, nuclear medicine technology, radiation therapy, and sonography candidates fit this need. These are the only ARRT candidates being allowed to schedule an appointment through April 30. A limited number of test centers have been opened to handle these candidates and they are not open every day. Additionally they are running at 50% capacity to help maintain social distancing which is why test center appointments thru April 30th are being limited to certain candidates . Candidates are allowed to bring a mask and gloves to the test center.
