We have recently signed an agreement with Pearson VUE, the computer-based testing (CBT) business of Pearson, to test candidates pursuing key industry certifications from leading IT programmes, such as Cisco, CompTIA, EMC, HP, LPI, Oracle and VMware.

Pearson VUE’s advanced system administers exams on behalf of hundreds of businesses, boards and organisations around the globe through the world’s largest most secure test centre network. The system enables candidates to register and reschedule their tests online or through a Pearson VUE call centre.

Our CTO Paul Newbury said:

We’re very excited about our new partnership – the Pearson VUE Testing System is the most powerful available and gives us unparalleled control and flexibility over our ability to manage our business our way and the agreement means we can easily offer same-day testing, or bring testing to our customers’ locations.

For example, not only does Yard offer expert Adobe training, but our candidates are now able to take the Adobe certification exam at Yard, allowing us to provide a seamless Adobe training experience.

The list of certification tests available from test sponsors through the Pearson VUE system is continually growing. Test results are quickly transmitted back, ensuring the candidate’s certification status is promptly updated.

Ray Murray, the Vice President of Business Development at Pearson VUE said:

We are proud to welcome Yard to the rapidly growing global network of Pearson VUE Authorised Test Centres. Together, we are providing even more candidates with the opportunity to obtain meaningful certifications and advance their careers.
