Schedule Your Exam

Once you’ve requested your voucher, ECPI University staff will be in touch to assist with scheduling. ECPI University students and alumni may test in one of three ways.

OPTION 1: Take your test on campus—if your campus has an available testing center. (To schedule an on-campus exam, please contact your campus for assistance.)
OPTION 2: Use your voucher code to schedule your exam at a nearby off-site Pearson VUE testing site.
OPTION 3: Use your voucher code to test at home using Pearson’s OnVUE testing platform (if applicable).

IMPORTANT notice for remote & off-site testers:  After you test, you need to let ECPI University staff know the result. Please respond to your voucher email or use the Ask a Librarian form to share your results.

Remote Testing

In addition to testing at a Pearson Test Center, VMware is offering online certification testing. Candidates can:

  • Test anywhere – especially from the security and privacy of their own home.
  • Test anytime – online testing can be conducted 24/7, schedule your exam whenever time permits, avoiding competing priorities or conflicts.
  • Test in a highly secure environment – remote proctoring ensures all candidates test under the same secure monitoring conditions as a test center.
