Special COVID-19 Requirement

    Prometric is requiring ALL who enter a Prometric Testing Center to bring their own mask and wear it for the duration of the exam.

    Candidates who do not bring and wear a mask will not be allowed in the test center, will be considered a “no show” and will forfeit all fees.
If you received an email from Prometric stating your exam was cancelled due to social distancing requirements, see below:
    The email alerted half of our June candidates that they must reschedule their test date in June to a different day due to social distancing requirements. If you did not receive this communication, your test date remains intact. In order to respect the COVID-19, 6-feet apart rule, every other test center seat must be vacant.

    Half of our current candidates now need to work with Prometric to find a new date with appropriate open seating at a test center in June or may choose to schedule a remotely-proctored option. Reschedule with Prometric online at www.prometric.com/VACC (choose the remote scheduling option on the left menu) or via Prometric’s call center at 1-800-899-3985.
