Pearson VUE ( implements innovative electronic testing solutions that enhance the performance, reliability and security of professional licensing and certification programs throughout the world. Exams are delivered through a domestic network of more than 200 company-owned and operated Pearson Professional Centers and a global network of more than 3400 Pearson VUE Authorized Centers. Southwestern Community College's Assessment Center is a VUE Authorized Center.

Each test center is authorized to deliver specific exams, and exam sponsors determine how their candidates may register for exams and schedule exam appointments. Candidates can typically register and schedule by contacting a testing center or visiting the candidate website.

To Register for an Exam

Southwestern's Pearson VUE test site is normally open a very limited number of days per year so scheduling a test appointment at Southwestern may be difficult without first contacting the Assessment Center (641.782.1330).  A date and time for testing will be agreed upon between the test center and the candidate.  The test center will then open the Southwestern Pearson VUE test site for that date and time and the candidate can proceed with the registration process.
