What’s New

Updated security measures at test centers

Beginning in September 2011, PBT and CAT test centers will begin fingerprinting and photographing all test takers as confirmation of their identity. As this will take additional time during check-in, all test takers are advised to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the test start time. Test takers refusing to comply with these security measures will be dismissed from the testing center and will forfeit all test fees.
