ABCP Statement Regarding Cancellation of the March 2020 Examinations by Prometric
On Tuesday, March 17, 2020, several hours after the National Office emailed March 2020 examinees regarding the options of rescheduling to alternate open centers or rescheduling for the fall examination due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the ABCP was notified that all Prometric centers were being closed for 30 days. In our communication earlier on March 17 with Prometric, only a few specific centers were closed and there was no indication that all testing centers would be closed. We regret any inconvenience that the earlier email may have caused.
The statement from Prometric regarding closing may be accessed at the Prometric website.
Please know that the ABCP Directors and the ABCP National Office will do everything in our control to ensure that your examinations will be rescheduled with the least amount of inconvenience possible and at no additional cost to you. We regret that you are encountering this additional stress on the path to becoming a CCP; however, the ABCP will provide support throughout this process. As we acquire additional information concerning this issue we will communicate with you. The next regularly scheduled examination window is October 14-17, 2020.
We appreciate your patience during these extraordinary times. The ABCP will always be available via phone or email to answer any questions or problems that you may encounter.
