Pearson VUE is Cisco's primary vendor for test delivery. Candidates interested in taking Cisco certification exams must register through Pearson VUE. Pearson VUE offers three different methods to register for current Cisco exams. You can use the Pearson VUE website, call a Pearson VUE agent, or contact the test center directly.
1. To register for an exam online, please sign in to your account using your Pearson VUE username and password. Please note that you will need to create a web account prior to using the website for the first time. If you do not have a username and password, and would like to get one, please create a web account now.
2. Another way to register for an exam is to contact a Pearson VUE agent directly.
3. The final option is to call or visit a test center directly. To locate the address and telephone number of a Pearson VUE test center, visit our Test Center Locator.
If registering for a retired Cisco exam with a promotional code, the candidate must call Pearson VUE or register directly with the test center. A candidate cannot register for a retired Cisco exam online.
When a candidate sits to take an exam at a testing work station, a screen prompt will ask the candidate if he or she is 18 years of age or older. Candidates will still be able to take their exam if they are under the age of 18, but prior to receiving their certification number, candidates must have a parent or legal guardian accept the terms and conditions of the Cisco Career Certification and Confidentiality Agreement, sign the form, and return it to Cisco by mail or fax. The actual form and more information on where to send it can be found through the following link: www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le11/learning_about_certifcation_exams.html
Candidates with special testing needs should contact a Pearson VUE agent directly and ask for the special accommodations department. Candidates must make their requests for accommodations at the time of registration. Special accommodations include time extensions for individuals with learning disabilities or physical challenges. Candidates generally receive a time and a half extension. Vision-impaired candidates who require a reader will have twice the amount of time to complete their exams in a separate room with a reader and recorder. Other requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
