Pearson Vue have suspended all exams in a bid to protect staff and test candidates and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Candidates concerned about the exam authorisation window should get in touch with IIA Global via the CCMS - where you'll also be able to re-book exams for free. Status updates on Pearson Vue's contingency planning in this regard can be found here.
The exam is taken digitally at a location of Pearson VUE. After registration you will receive a registration number with which you can reserve a date and time at Pearson VUE for half a year (180 days) to take the exam. This is possible at every Pearson VUE location worldwide, so if desired also abroad. In the Netherlands, the organization has exam locations in Amsterdam and Utrecht. There is one exam location in Belgium. It is advisable to reserve at least two months prior to your desired date.
When taking the exam, you must bring a valid identification document and your authorization letter with the unique code. You will not be admitted without these documents and your rights will expire. You can bring a dictionary; a calculator is made available digitally. Also make sure you are (well) on time - the time reserved by you cannot be postponed and if you arrive late, your rights will expire. Immediately after taking an exam, you will receive a provisional result - this status cannot yet be granted. This will be confirmed definitively within approximately five weeks.
