The Pearson VUE Hub will be unavailable this weekend for their monthly software updates. The outage will run from 5:00 pm Saturday 21, January to 11:59 pm Saturday 22 January (US Central Standard Time CST or -6 hours Greenwich Mean Time.)

While the actual outage may be less than the full window, you should be aware that you will not be able to schedule exams during this period. Exams must be finished before the outage begins. Registration blocks for Internet Based Exams (IBT) have been scheduled for 4pm Saturday until 3:00am Sunday (CST).

We thank you for your patience during this outage.
