All eight (8) BCSP certifications have been recognized by Pearson VUE as important in supporting the operations of essential industries in all 50 U.S. states and most U.S. territories and Canadian provinces (U.S. Virgin Islands and Nova Scotia pending).
Where COVID-19 shutdown orders are active or again implemented, Pearson VUE-owned testing centers that meet requirements to remain open will also be permitted to continue administering exams scheduled for BCSP certifications.
Pearson VUE testing centers have made adjustments to keep candidates safe and healthy. BCSP encourages candidates to follow Pearson VUE’s safety guidelines, identify multiple testing locations at which they can sit for exam, and schedule examinations in advance.

Even though test centers are beginning to open, you can take the CHMM exam by remote online live proctoring as a testing alternative to taking exams at a test center. Live Remote Online Proctored exams may be taken at home or work, but require a quiet, distraction-free, well-lit room with no other people, pets, electronics, or test aids. With the use of a webcam and your computer, your exam is delivered to your computer and then is visually and audibly monitored by a Kryterion Certified Online Proctor in a live session. The use of a personal calculator is not permitted. However, an on-screen calculator will be available.
More details can be found in the Candidate Handbook at ihmm.org/chmm.
