    More Opportunities to Promote Your Courses With Continuous Testing!

    Starting November 1, 2016, there will be no longer be testing windows, which means more opportunities for you to promote your courses! Now candidates can take all seven HRCI exams year-round at worldwide testing centers. 

    Effective June 1, 2021, Pearson VUE will reinstate the $150 cancellation/reschedule fee for exams scheduled at test centers or online. Pearson will continue to waive the fee for candidates who present and must reschedule due to COVID-19 reasoning (symptoms, diagnosis, direct exposure, or quarantine requirements).
