COVID-19 updates

Pearson VUE will monitor the situation with COVID-19 in relation to test centre operations and will operate in accordance with government and local authorities. 

Facemasks at all test centres
All candidates must take their own face mask to the test centre as most test centres will require you to wear one to sit the test. This applies to candidates sitting the test in Australia, New Zealand and at overseas locations. Test centres do not provide face masks to candidates. 

Any surgical or cloth face mask, including a homemade face mask, is acceptable as long as your nose and mouth are fully covered. Face masks with exhalation valves and face shields are not acceptable. At test centres where facemasks are mandatory, candidates will not be permitted to sit the test without one. 

Candidates sitting the test at an overseas location (outside Australia and New Zealand) should refer to the country specific testing information at the Pearson VUE COVID-19 page closer to their test date for any updates about COVID-19 as it relates to test centres in their location.
