    • Pearson OnVUE remote proctoring will be temporary, however the National Registry is planning to implement a more permanent remote proctoring solution in 2021.
    • Once a candidate sits for and passes the National Registry Cognitive Exam, they will be issued a full National Registry and Virginia certification.
  • Psychomotor Exams – After careful consideration, the Office of EMS Management Team has decided to cancel all further Consolidated Testing at the BLS level through December 31, 2021 due to Executive Order 51, 53 & 55.  With so many unknown factors in the months ahead and the amount of advanced planning and commitment required to hold a CTS, we determined cancellation to be in the best interest of the health, safety and well-being of all participants.  Students will receive guidance from their Course Coordinator as to how their psychomotor skills will be tested in lieu of Consolidated Testing.
