Pearson VUE for Microsoft Official Exams beginning September 4, 2014


Pearson VUE has been added as a new exam delivery provider for Microsoft Certification exams. Starting September 4, 2014, candidates, including academic candidates, may choose from both Prometric or Pearson VUE to complete their Microsoft Certification Professional (MCP) exams and Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) exams. Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) and academic MTA exams will continue to be delivered through Certiport.

Announced this week at the Microsoft World Partner Conference 2014, Microsoft is consolidating all exam delivery provider services with Pearson VUE, and Certiport, a division of Pearson VUE, effective January 1, 2015. This will enable Microsoft to provide a more seamless customer experience throughout the Microsoft Certification exam testing process.

LRS Education Services will offer Microsoft Certification exams as an Authorized Prometric Test Center through August 15, 2014 at our Springfield and Bloomington Education Facilities so that we may make the transition to Pearson VUE effective September 4, 2014. We will begin delivering Microsoft exams under Pearson VUE beginning September 9, 2014.

Students who have received complimentary exam vouchers with us by attending a Microsoft Official Course may continue to use the exam voucher at any Prometric Test Center through December 31, 2014. LRS will begin offering Pearson VUE exam vouchers by students who redeem them after attending a Microsoft Official Course beginning September 9, 2014.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can answer any questions regarding this transition.
