Woonsocket Education Center to host online exams for variety of careers and certifications
Woonsocket Education Center is now an authorized testing site for Pearson Vue, a nationwide network of testing centers providing on-site, on-demand testing for certification and professional licensure exams. Appointments to take one of the 400+ tests starting on June 1, 2023 can be made at www.pearsonvue.com.
Many employers require certification for various technical and professional occupations. Some of the most common exams at the Pearson VUE Authorized Test Center at Woonsocket Education Center are expected to be the GED, ServSafe Food Protection Manager, Crossfit Trainer, emergency nursing, MTELS and AWS certifications, real estate, insurance, and computer skills.
“A barrier to testing is a barrier to higher education, job skills training and employment.” said Shannon Gilkey, R.I. Commissioner of Postsecondary Education. “We are working toward a more highly educated, highly skilled workforce as a driver for economic growth and prosperity in northern Rhode Island and this development enhances that effort.”
Pearson Vue tests will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Woonsocket Education Center, located at 115 Main Street. The length of the exam is a determinant of when the testing period can be booked.
