Cancelations and Reschedule Fee

Cancelations and Reschedule Fees Reinstated subtext: If you would like to cancel and reschedule your examination, PearsonVUE charges a $75 USD fee per occurrence (may be subject to additional local tax). If the test center is closed and the exam appointment is canceled by Pearson VUE the cancelation fee will be waived automatically.

Candidates whose programs will expire within the next 60 days must make an extension request by submitting a new case in the CCMS. For expirations greater than 60 days, an extension may be purchased in CCMS for an additional fee. All cases will be reviewed and approved on an individual basis. Please refer to the Certification Candidate Handbook for additional details.

Exam Security

The IIA, the Professional Certifications Board, and Pearson VUE take exam security seriously because the value of your certification depends on it. That’s why IIA Global created an Exam Security Team to enhance processes and procedures and increase investigative measures to protect The IIA’s exam intellectual property (IP).

Unauthorized possession, reproduction, publication, or disclosure of any examination materials, including storing or disclosing examination questions to any person or entity by any means before, during, or after the examination, is prohibited by copyright laws and can result in candidate disqualification or other appropriate censure. Studying from recalled test content is also improper and can lead to severe penalties. If you are aware that an exam has been exposed, do not purchase such materials. Report the incident to The IIA at Additional information can be found on the Exam Security page or within the Certification Handbook.
