Pearson VUE (PV) Exam Scheduling

After purchasing a Pearson VUE exam on the ASMC website, you should receive an email in 24-48 hours with a unique Pearson VUE candidate ID and scheduling directions.

Important: Before selecting a Pearson VUE test center located on a military base, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the proper approval to enter that base. If you schedule an on-base exam and no-show because you are turned away for not having the proper permissions, your exam fees will be forfeited.


For concerns about COVID-19 and testing, see Pearson VUE’s Coronavirus Update Page here for details on:

  • Additional measures Pearson VUE has implemented across Pearson-owned testing centers
  • Which test centers’ operations are currently affected by the coronavirus country-by-country (and/or regions as applicable)
  • Some helpful tips for what candidates can do prior to their testing appointment

Pearson VUE’s incident response team continues to monitor the developing situation and global circumstances daily and will act upon any new guidance provided by local authorities and government agencies as they develop.

ADA Testing Accommodations

ASMC complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and wants to ensure that no eligible individual is deprived of the opportunity to take the exam solely by reason of a disability as defined under the ADA (or equivalent), as long as the disability is not one which would render the individual incapable of performing the duties of a certified position.

Candidates must identify their need for special accommodations at least 5 weeks before the desired testing date by making a request in writing, to include a letter reporting a formally-diagnosed, ADA-recognized disability from a qualified professional who has provided evaluation or treatment to the applicant.

The report must document the following information in order to be considered:

  • The specific diagnosis and date of diagnosis
  • Specific and current findings that support the diagnosis (e.g., relevant medical history, tests administered, date of most current evaluation within the last 3 years, etc.)
  • A description of the candidate’s substantial, day-to-day functional limitations resulting from the stated disability
  • Specific recommendations for testing accommodations including a detailed explanation of why the accommodations are needed. If the accommodation includes extra time, indicate the amount of time requested (e.g., time and a half, double time, etc.)

Special Accommodations requests can be emailed to certification@asmconline.org, faxed to (703) 549-3181, or mailed to ASMC Certification Dept, 415 N Alfred St, Suite 3, Alexandria, VA 22314.
