This new partnership will also allow many SUNY Orange students in career and technical academic programs the convenience of taking their industry certification exams at the College rather than at an off-site location.

Pearson VUE’s advanced system administers exams on behalf of hundreds of businesses, boards and organizations around the globe through the world’s largest, most secure test center network. The system enables candidates to register and reschedule their tests online or through a Pearson VUE call center. Pearson VUE delivered 10 million exams in 2011.

The College’s Testing Center, located in the Shepard Student Center on the Middletown campus, is managed by the SUNY Orange Continuing and Professional Education department and is staffed by certified proctors.

“We’re very excited about our new partnership with Pearson VUE,” says David Kohn, CAPE director. “The Pearson VUE Testing System gives us the control and flexibility to easily offer same-day testing, or bring testing to our customers’ locations. We’re pleased to partner with a company whose industry status, technology and passion for excellence will allow us to provide even greater service for our customers.”

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, vice president of business development for Pearson VUE, adds, “We are proud to welcome SUNY Orange to the rapidly growing global network of Pearson VUE Authorized Test Centers. Together, we are providing even more candidates with the opportunity to obtain meaningful certifications and advance their careers.”
