Mar. 17, 2020 Media Contact: Alyson Maloney , 215-568-4000

As of March 17, ABS has received information from Pearson VUE that, in response to the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation, they have had to temporarily close U.S.- and Canada-based Pearson Professional Centers (PPCs) starting March 16, 2020 for at least 30 days until April 16, or whenever conditions are deemed safe to re-open.

Affected individuals will receive communications from Pearson regarding candidate cancellation notifications, which will provide instructions for scheduling new appointments on or after April 16, 2020. The window for the readmission examination is through May 15, but that may change according to the needs of the population and the profession at the time.

As you know, this situation is incredibly fast-paced and fluid, with new information emerging daily. We will continue to monitor the situation and will do what we can to minimize the impact this crisis has on careers. Thank you for your cooperation during this time of rapid change and uncertainty. If you have questions, please contact the ABS office at 215-568-4000.
