Candidate Conduct at Pearson VUE Testing Centers


The Pearson VUE staff will guide you through the steps developed by The IIA, many of which are designed to ensure your security and the security of the exam itself.

Violations of the Pearson VUE testing site rules include, but are not limited to:

  • Being disruptive.
  • Having any item not specifically permitted in the testing room, such as a phone or watch.
  • Acting suspiciously.
  • Removing test items from the center.
  • Providing false information when applying for the certification program.

Test center employees have been trained to watch for unusual behavior and incidents during exams, and real-time monitoring is backed up by audio and videotaping of the exam sessions.
