Exam Scheduling Instructions
This document outlines the procedure CertNexus exam candidates will follow to register for all Pearson VUE-administered CertNexus exams.
Step 1. Purchase your exam voucher from the CertNexus store, a commercial training provider, or a third-party vendor.
Step 2. Navigate to http://www.pearsonvue.com/certnexus. Click Sign in if you already have a CertNexus program account through Pearson VUE, or click Create account to create a new account. You can find these buttons on the right side of the screen.
You can also find contact information for Pearson VUE on this page (in red text along the right margin of the screen) if you need further help with the registration process.
NOTE: Pearson VUE requires you to have a unique user account for every program for which they administer exams. If you have an existing Pearson VUE account for another exam vendor, you will need to create a new account to register for a CertNexus exam. Once you create this account, you may register for other CertNexus exams using the same login credentials.
Step 3. When you create a new account, you will be prompted to agree to the Pearson VUE Privacy and Cookies Policy. You cannot create an account without agreeing to this policy. Make sure you scroll to the bottom of the popup and check the check box before selecting I Agree.
Step 4. Next, you will complete the three-step process of creating a Pearson VUE account, which includes providing requested demographic data and creating a Pearson VUE username and password.
Step 5. Upon successful completion of the account creation process, you will be taken to the Home screen. From here, click the View Exams button to access the list of available CertNexus exams.
Step 6. From the list of available exams, select the exam that you would like to take.
NOTE: If you are registering for an Anywhere Proctored test event and have been given a private access code (PAC), select the Do you have a private access code? link. Type in the PAC that was provided to you and click Enter. Then, select the exam for which you wish to register.
Step 7. Once you select an exam, you can view its information on the Exam Details screen, which includes the testing policies and price. Then, click Schedule this Exam to move to the next step in the scheduling process.
Step 8. On the Confirm Exam Selection screen, confirm the details of the exam you have selected and click Proceed to Scheduling to continue.
Step 9. Select the most convenient testing center location, and then select Next.
NOTE: for Anywhere Proctored events, you will not need to select a test center or exam date. You will automatically navigate to the My Order screen.
Step 10. On the Choose Appointment screen, select the day you would like to test from the available options displayed on the calendar.
Step 11. Once you select a day, the available start times populate below the calendar and you can choose a suitable time to take your exam.
Step 12. On the My Order screen, review your order details and make any necessary changes before clicking Proceed to Checkout to continue.
Step 13. On the Checkout screen, review your personal information. If any changes are necessary, click Edit to update your personal information. If everything is correct, click Next.
Step 14. Read and agree to CertNexus’ policies. Failure to do so will prevent you from completing the checkout process.
Make sure you check the policy agreement checkbox before clicking Next.
Step 15. To begin the checkout process, click Add Voucher or Promo Code and enter your exam voucher or promo code. Remember, you must purchase your voucher ahead of time from the CertNexus store, a commercial training party, or a third-party vendor.
NOTE: PACs issued for Anywhere Proctored test events are neither an exam voucher nor a promo code. PACs only enable you to register for Anywhere Proctored events. You must still purchase your exam voucher ahead of time to complete the registration process.
Once you have entered your exam voucher or promo code, click Next.
Step 16. Review your exam and payment details one last time before submitting your order and scheduling your exam.
If all your information is correct, click Submit Order.
NOTE: You can always click Cancel Order to clear all your information and start over.
