Exams, Courseware and Classes

Exam Information

Candidates in affected regions should schedule their exams approximately two months in advance of their desired testing date. However, candidates in affected regions who have difficulties finding availabilities due to the impact of COVID-19 on test center operation should contact support@ascm.org for assistance approximately three to four weeks before their Authorization to Test (ATT) expires. ATT extensions will not be provided for the purpose of granting additional study time. Candidates may also reschedule online or contact Pearson VUE by phone.
