PEARSON VUE TO OPEN THIRD-PARTY
TESTING CENTERS AND SUPERCENTERS FOR BOMI LEARNERS
BOMI International is working with our exam partner,
Pearson VUE, to help learners waiting to test to do so as expediently and
safely as possible.
Though many Pearson VUE computer-based testing locations
are currently closed or constrained due to COVID-19, BOMI International is
working with Pearson VUE to open third-party testing centers and SuperCenters
in certain markets not normally available to BOMI International learners.
Though the hours or availability of these third-party centers may differ from
those of actual Pearson VUE-owned testing centers, the third-party centers and
SuperCenters will follow BOMI International’s testing guidelines.
To further alleviate issues for learners waiting to write
exams, BOMI International is working with Pearson VUE to establish an online
exam proctoring solution that will allow for 24/7 testing opportunities from
home. More information on this testing option will be provided in the near
Pearson VUE and its centers are implementing proper precautions

COVID-19 pandemic, including engaging in social distancing, wearing face masks,
and wearing disposable gloves during testing. More information on the steps

eligibilities end between 4/16/2020 to 6/30/2020. Learners who previously
received exam eligibility extensions through 6/30/2020 have also been given an

BOMI ONLINE COURSE ACCESS
BOMI International is extending access for active
learners currently enrolled in the BOMI Learning Portal to accommodate the
impact of testing centers not being available due to COVID 19. Enrolled
Online Self-paced (OSP) learners, Spring 2020 Instructor-led online learners,
and CMCP Exam Prep learners will now have access to online learning resources
through August 30, 2020. Please take advantage of the online resources for
preparing for your final exam post the testing center closures.
The printer that creates BOMI International's program
certificates has re-opened, but with limited hours to protect workers. Learners
who have earned a certificate have been submitted to the printing plant, but
certificates may be delayed. If you need confirmation of credential achievement
in the meantime, please send an email to email@example.com and request a
Certificate of Program standing, which will be emailed to you. All graduates
will still receive their graduate packets, as usual.
