Effective August 31, 2009, Citrix certification exams will be delivered exclusively through Pearson VUE testing centers and will no longer be available through Prometric testing centers.
Students may still register for an exam and redeem exam vouchers with Prometric until July 31, 2009; however, scheduled exams must be completed in a Prometric testing center by August 30. Beginning August 1, any unused Prometric vouchers will be valid in the Pearson VUE system. The current Citrix exam registration process with Pearson VUE is unaffected by this transition, and will continue as normal.
With the transition to a single-vendor relationship, Pearson VUE and Citrix plan to work more closely together to focus on key areas such as exam security and marketing programs that raise awareness of the value and integrity of Citrix certifications. This will also allow Citrix to increase the scalability and coverage of its certification programs, ultimately adding to its recognition and value.
