It’s easy to join the Pearson VUE® Authorized Test Center network if you meet basic requirements. You’ll find an application, technical specifications and instructions available from the Test Center home page.
Sites that have fulfilled all technical and facility requirements and have submitted the required documents, photos, and agreements in a timely manner, can be up and running in as little as one month.
There is no cost for the site to become an authorized test center. Pearson VUE provides the software and technical support services free of charge to your site. However, sites must meet minimum technical requirements, which includes the computer equipment as well as the Enhanced Security Protocol (ESP) kit.
The ESP kit contains two digital cameras and a digital signature pad. The kit can be purchased from Pearson VUE for $450 or sites can purchase the equipment on their own, per the technical requirements.
Go to Pearson VUE's mindhub store and follow the directions to create an account and purchase the kit: https://www.mindhub.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ESPKIT.
Technical requirements do not allow the use of laptops in our test centers. Refer to the technical requirements for more information.
When a test session is in progress, the room must be dedicated to testing. Any other time the room can be used for other purposes.
No, our technicians will not visit your site. However, they are available by phone to support all aspects of your installation.

Whatever the stakes, high or low, Pearson VUE’s test delivery options strike the right balance between security and flexibility. Based on your program and exam requirements, the Integrated Platform gives you choices like no other test delivery system can.
