ECPI University recognizes the importance of professional certifications, and each Campus Library maintains a Certification Central Collection with study guides and review materials to help students, alumni, faculty and staff prepare for these exams.
A Pearson VUE® Authorized Test Center is available at some ECPI locations. Pearson VUE delivers certification exams through the world’s most comprehensive and secure network of test centers in 175 countries. Test center hours of operation vary by location. A Test Center Administrator registers and proctors exams. Some industry certification exams are proctored on campus by authorized ECPI Instructors. Medical Careers Institute, the College of Health Science, licensure exams are delivered off-campus at Pearson Professional Test Centers and other licensure delivery test sites.
For select Business and IT certifications, students will prepare and register for exams through GetCertified, a certification study and voucher request platform that makes it easy for students and alumni to prepare for select IT certification exams.
Visit GetCertifed for more information.
For exams that have not yet been incorporated into the GetCertified platform, contact your local department head, program director, or test center administrator to begin the registration process.
Test takers must complete an ‘ECPI Certification Exam Eligibility Form’ and submit it to an academic program administrator for their signature of approval prior to test registration.
Students and alumni must have successfully completed courses designated on the Approved Certifications List and be in good academic standing.
Test takers also sign an agreement form at the test center before testing to release the pass/fail score to the University.
Since COVID-19, most IT and business industry certification testing is conducted at public Pearson VUE Test Centers or through Pearson VUE’s online testing platform OnVUE. A few ECPI locations still provide on campus Pearson VUE Authorized test centers.
Some industry certification exams are proctored in the classroom by authorized instructors. Health science and nursing licensure exams are delivered at authorized test centers approved by the exam sponsor.
