CompTIA has launched an ‘anytime, anywhere’ online testing option for its certification exams. CompTIA is collaborating with Pearson VUE, experts in computer-based testing, to make its exams available via Pearson VUE’s OnVUE online proctoring solution.
The online testing option for CompTIA exams is available in English, around the world, with the following exceptions: China, Cuba, Japan, Iran, North Korea, South Korea, Sudan, Syria, and Slovenia.
Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO of CompTIA said, “current and prospective IT professionals, students, career changers and others whose plans have been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic can resume their studies and schedule their exams with the full confidence that we’re here when they’re ready to take their test.
“They’ll do so on a platform that delivers a rich user experience and robust security protection, all from the privacy and security of their home. This is a great advancement for our global certification program. We’re extremely pleased to work with our long-time partner Pearson VUE to deliver online testing to candidates around the world.”
Online testing allows certification candidates to:
- Test from anywhere, especially from the security and privacy of their own home or from any private area
- Test anytime, so candidates can schedule their exam according to their schedule to avoid competing priorities and conflicts
- Test in a highly secure environment, because Pearson VUE’s OnVUE remote proctoring ensures all candidates test under the same secure monitoring conditions as a test centre
Online tests may be scheduled for all CompTIA certifications except for CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+).
CompTIA will continue to offer both online testing and taking a certification exam in a test centre once those facilities are cleared to reopen for business based on guidance from local governments and health authorities.
