Rochester, New York – [May 14, 2020] CertNexus announces the expansion of their online proctoring options via Pearson OnVUE. As of May 1, 2020, that portfolio expands to include their ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 accredited CyberSec First Responder (CFR-310) and Certified IoT Practitioner (ITP-110).

CertNexus has collaborated with its partners, PearsonVUE and ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB), to expedite making all of its exams available via Pearson’s OnVUE online proctoring platform.

“Online proctoring allows candidates to take their exams in a private location, which is especially important as remote working becomes the norm,” states Megan Smith Branch, Chief Product Officer at CertNexus. “We are extremely pleased that this now includes our ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 accredited exams, CFR and CIoTP.”

With many testing centers closing to ensure the health and safety of candidates, CertNexus recognizes that access to exam testing sites is another potential disruption for certification candidates seeking a vendor-neutral, industry-recognized certification in emerging technologies of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, secure coding and the internet of things. Pearson’s OnVUE online proctoring platform provides candidates with the ability to safely take exams remotely while providing the necessary security features.

CertNexus also announced in late March that exam vouchers with expiration dates prior to July 1st will be extended through the end of 2020. For questions regarding certifications and exam scheduling visit CertNexus’ Candidates Resources Page.
