Curtin Pearson VUE Authorised Test Centre a boon to candidates pursuing key industry certifications

Miri – 10 October 2017 – Curtin University, Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) and Pearson VUE, the computer-based testing (CBT) business of global learning company Pearson, have established the Curtin Pearson VUE Authorised Test Centre at the university campus following the signing of an agreement between the two organisations last month.

The test centre serves as a testing facility for candidates pursuing key industry certifications from leading IT programmes such as Cisco, The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), Dell EMC, Hewlett-Packard, Linux Professional Institute (LPI), Oracle and VMware.

Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Science at Curtin Malaysia, Ir. Professor Lau Hieng Ho said, “We are very excited about our partnership with Pearson VUE, a company whose industry status, technology and passion for excellence will help us provide outstanding service for our customers.”

“The company’s testing system is the most advanced available and gives us unparalleled control and flexibility in managing our testing activities according to our needs. It means we can easily offer same-day testing and even conduct testing at our customers’ locations,” he added.

Pearson VUE’s advanced system administers examinations on behalf of hundreds of businesses, boards and organisations around the globe through the world’s largest, most secure network of test centres.

The list of certification tests available from test sponsors through the system is continually growing. Test results are quickly transmitted back, ensuring the candidate’s certification status is promptly updated.

Meanwhile, Vice President (Business Development) of Pearson VUE, Ray Murray said, “We are proud to welcome Curtin Malaysia to the rapidly growing global network of Pearson VUE Authorized Test Centres. At Pearson VUE, we believe testing and certification is at the heart of the learning experience and Curtin Malaysia will play its part by offering accessible and secure testing facilities for candidates.”

“Together, we are providing even more candidates with the opportunity to obtain significant certifications and advance their careers,” Pearson added.

Pearson VUE Authorized Test Centres are privately owned, third-party testing facilities which provide on-site, on-demand testing for certification and professional licensure exams.

Pearson VUE is a business of Pearson, the international education company, whose businesses also include the Financial Times Group, Pearson Education and the Penguin Group. It provides a full suite of services from test development to data management, and delivers exams through the world’s most comprehensive and secure network of test centres in more than 175 countries.
