This week, PMI® announced that beginning July 1st 2019 it is moving to Pearson VUE for all its certification examinations worldwide (except for China).
We’re moving to Pearson VUE to provide a better overall exam experience. All certification examinations worldwide (except China) will be run through Pearson VUE to provide:
- Additional test locations: With more testing locations available, choosing a convenient test site is easier than ever.
- Online proctoring for PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® and Certified Associate in Project Management (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.
- Versatility to U.S. Service Members: Pearson VUE offers a global U.S. Federal and military on-base test center network in the marketplace, allowing US Service and government members to test where they serve around the world.
Starting 1 April 2019, all PMI certification exams will be available for scheduling through Pearson VUE. Testing with Pearson VUE will begin 1 July 2019. We will stop testing at Prometric for all PMI certifications on 30 June.

If your exam is already scheduled on or before 2019-06-30
You can keep that appointment and test as planned, regardless of the certification exam.
If your exam is already scheduled on or after 2019-07-01
For candidates in this situation, PMI writes that “we will work with Prometric and Pearson VUE to have that appointment moved to a Pearson VUE location”. What will most likely happen is that PMI will reach out to youin the coming days or weeks and ask you to reschedule your exam at a Pearson VUE testing location near you.
