Galveston College Offers New Testing System
Galveston College Joins Global Pearson VUE Testing Network

Galveston College announced that it has signed an agreement with Pearson VUE, the electronic certification and licensure testing business of Pearson. This will provide Information Technology certification test delivery using the Pearson VUE® Testing System. The Pearson VUE advanced computer-based testing system administers exams for leading IT certification programs such as Cisco®, CompTIA®, Citrix®, Novell® and others through a global network of quality test centers.

“We’re very excited about our new partnership with Pearson VUE,” said, Michelle Mackey, Assessment Coordinator. “The Pearson VUE Testing System is the most powerful available. We’re pleased to partner with a company whose breakthrough technology and passion for service will allow us to provide even greater service for our customers.”

The Pearson VUE system has several advances, such as, the ability of test candidates to register or reschedule their tests at the test center through the Pearson VUE website or through a Pearson VUE call center. “The Pearson VUE Testing System gives us unparalleled control and flexibility over our ability to manage our business our way,” added Michelle Mackey. “With so many options, we will be able to experiment with testing hours and number of testing stations. We can easily offer same-day testing, or bring testing to our customers’ locations. Everyone benefits.”

The increasing list of IT certification tests are delivered directly from the test sponsors to the Pearson VUE system. The test results are quickly transmitted back, ensuring the candidate’s certification status is promptly updated.

Randy Trask, Pearson VUE Vice President Market Development, said, “We are proud to welcome Galveston College to the rapidly growing global network of Pearson VUE Authorized Test Centers, providing candidates with an opportunity to participate in a positive, rewarding test experience.”
