CSEMS Pearson Testing Facility Closure and the Introduction to OnVue Testing

Having recognized the limitations of testing throughout Virginia during the COVID-19 pandemic and the initial increased demand for providers, CSEMS PearsonVUE Testing Facility temporarily reopened, extending the original closure date to the end of May.

After careful review of the testing volume for the CSEMS testing facility, the additional testing facilities becoming available throughout the state, and implementation of Pearson OnVUE, we have decided to continue with the planned closure of the PearsonVUE testing at the CSEMS location as of May 28, 2020.

Last Available Day for CSEMS PearsonVUE Testing

Pearson OnVUE Remote Proctored Exams

OnVUE online proctored exams allow you to conveniently take an exam in the comfort of your home or office while being monitored by an offsite proctor. All communication with the proctor is done in English.

The National Registry is working to increase Pearson OnVUE Testing remotely proctored cognitive exams for BLS candidates. For candidates who are unable to access testing at a Pearson Test Center due to lack of available seats, they can begin using Pearson OnVUE May 12, 2020.

Pearson OnVUE remote proctoring will be temporary, however the National Registry is planning to implement a more permanent remote proctoring solution in 2021.

Once a candidate sits for and passes the National Registry Cognitive Exam, they will be issued a full National Registry and Virginia certification.
