In response to the rapidly developing COVID-19 situation, Pearson VUE unexpectedly announced the temporary closure of testing centers in the United States and Canada. This directly impacts all National Registry examinations delivered by Pearson VUE. The National Registry was already preparing alternative pathways, in conjunction with partners, to ensure the continuity of certification and support the national EMS system during this crisis.
These are unprecedented times. As the Nation’s EMS Certification organization, we recognize the thousands of providers on the path to EMS service. We are finalizing potential solutions and will be sharing additional details in the coming days. We remain committed to supporting the vital work that you do.
For candidates and registrants with pending applications, no immediate action is required at this time. We will provide details as solutions are implemented.
