• The computer-based test delivery system, tutorial, exam content, and survey are the unpublished, confidential, and proprietary materials of Prometric and/or your test sponsor.
• Communicating, publishing, reproducing, or transmitting any part of an exam, in any form or by any means (e.g. verbal, electronic, written, etc.) for any purpose is strictly prohibited.
• ANY reproduction or disclosure will result in the immediate filing of civil and/or criminal charges against you and anyone directing or conspiring with you.
Q. How do I find out if my testing center location is closed?
A. To check the status of your testing center location, please visit our Site Updates page, where you’ll find a list of all centers that are closed due to inclement weather or other circumstances.
Q. Can I cancel and/or reschedule my test appointment via the Prometric Web site?
A. Yes. Many test appointments can be cancelled and/or rescheduled through the Prometric Web site. From the Prometric.com home page, click on the button for what you’d like to do (either cancel or reschedule). Then, simply follow the on-screen instructions which will walk you through the process, step by step. As part of the process you’ll need to provide the confirmation number you received when you scheduled your exam initially, so please have it with you. If you do not have your confirmation number, please contact our customer service center.
Q. How far in advance do I need to reschedule my exam so that I don’t get charged a fee?
A. The fee to reschedule an exam varies by testing organization, as does the amount of time you have to do so without penalty. Please check the procedures specific to the organization whose exam you are taking for rescheduling timeliness and penalties.
Q. I just want to make sure my exam is still occurring. How can I confirm it?
A. As part of the process you’ll need to provide the confirmation number you received when you scheduled your exam initially, so please have it with you. If you do not have your confirmation number, please contact our customer service center.

Q. How do I use a voucher to “pay” for my exam?
A. When you schedule your appointment online or by telephone, you will be asked to provide your method of payment. Provide your voucher number at this time. You may also present the voucher onsite at your local test center.
Prometric vouchers are non-returnable, and non-refundable, and may only be used for the type of test indicated on the voucher. Terms and conditions of use accompany each voucher order along with the expiration date. Vouchers may not be redeemed after the expiration date.
Q. When will my credit card be charged?
A. Credit card processing time varies depending upon the exam. Your credit card may be charged from the time you schedule your appointment up to the time you are scheduled to test.
Q. How can I request a receipt?
A. You can print your receipt yourself as part of the online scheduling and registration process, at the end of your payment transaction. There are some exams for which you do not pay Prometric directly, but rather you pay the testing organization whose test you are taking. In these cases you must request a receipt from that organization, and not from Prometric.
Alternatively, you can contact us and request a confirmation letter which includes the amount you paid for your exam.
Q. How do I determine the cost of a particular exam?
A. The cost of any exam is dictated by the organization whose exam it is. You can likely find pricing information on that organization’s website. In addition, it will be visible at some point during the online scheduling and registration process.
Q. If I cancel my exam, am I eligible for a refund?
A. Possibly. Whether or not you receive a refund for your cancelled exam depends on the exam you were scheduled to take, how far in advance you cancel your exam and the rules and procedures surrounding exam cancellation set forth by the organization whose exam it is. Each organization has its own rules surrounding how cancellations and refunds are handled, so please refer to the sponsoring organization for information specific to your exam.
Q. When will I receive my score reports?
A. That depends on the exam you’ve taken. How scores are reported, and when, is determined by the organization whose exam you’ve taken. In some cases, such as with many Information Technology exams, scores are available immediately following the exam and the test taker will know by the time he leaves the test center whether he passed. In other cases, the testing organization asks Prometric to send scores to them directly first, and then they send results to test takers. Please check with your exam sponsor for complete information.
Q. How can I check the status of my certification? Why haven’t I received it yet?
A. To obtain information about the status of your certification, you must contact the examination sponsor directly. Prometric delivers the exam on behalf of test sponsors, but the certification or license for which you are ultimately testing is managed by the organization whose exam you took.
Q. I am not happy with my score. Can I retest?
A. Whether you are able to take your examination again depends on the test you’re taking and the rules set forth by the testing organization whose exam it is. For many certification exams, test takers are permitted to test as many times as they wish, though some time there is a mandatory waiting period. If the exam requires that a test taker is “eligible”, meaning that he has met certain pre-requisite criteria, the restrictions around the eligibility will determine whether you can retest. As the rules around retesting are unique to each organization, please check with your exam sponsor for complete information.
NOTE: If you cannot find the answer you are looking for please Contact Us directly and one of our customer service representatives will get back to you as soon as possible.
