NCCPA has received an important update from its test delivery vendor, Pearson VUE. In light of the recent COVID-19 (coronavirus) related announcements by the federal government, continued government guidance, and with careful consideration, Pearson has decided to temporarily close all company-owned U.S. and Canada-based Pearson Professional Centers (PPCs) starting March 17, 2020 until April 16, or whenever conditions are deemed safe to re-open.

Pearson places highest priority on the safety and well-being of all candidates who test at their centers and has been implementing measures to help protect the health and safety of everyone who passes through their test centers.  The COVID-19 impact has presented extraordinary challenges for Pearson to be able to provide a safe, healthy testing environment.

As you know, this situation is incredibly fast-paced and fluid, with new information emerging daily. NCCPA and Pearson will continually evaluate the issue and provide updates as information becomes available on test centers reopening.  Please check NCCPA’s website or Pearson’s coronavirus update web site page for updated information.  If you have questions for NCCPA, please email us at

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we all work together to do what we can to fight the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S.
