NREMT Renews Exclusive Contract With Pearson VUE

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., Dec. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pearson VUE, the computer-based testing business of Pearson, announced that the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) has renewed their contract for test delivery of their emergency technician exams. The high-stakes exams will continue to be available throughout the Pearson VUE-owned and -operated network of more than 260 Pearson Professional Centers and supplemented by select Pearson VUE Authorized Test Center locations in rural areas.

The NREMT is the Nation's Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Certification® agency established to serve the Emergency Medical Services community by providing a valid, uniform process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice by EMS professionals across the country. The NREMT seeks to verify that every EMT and paramedic who passes the NREMT exam can safely and effectively practice at entry levels of competency. The NREMT also maintains a registry of certification status.

"Security is a key factor in the delivery of our exams," said Bill Brown executive director of NREMT. "By testing in Pearson VUE's network we are ensuring that the individuals who sit for our exams are in fact the people NREMT has authorized to take the exams. Pearson VUE's Secure Testing Framework helps protect the integrity of our high-stakes examinations." Mr. Brown added, "Pearson VUE has proved to be an excellent partner. Their test center coverage provides our candidates with the ability to test almost every day of the year. In addition, by providing testing centers on military bases, service members can earn EMS certifications while on active duty. Other capabilities, such as Computer Adapted Testing (CAT), advanced psychometric services and rapid turnaround of test results, enable our candidates to start practicing their profession much more quickly than was possible with paper and pencil testing."   

"We are thrilled that NREMT has renewed their contract with Pearson VUE," said Robert Whelan, president and chief executive officer of Pearson VUE. "NREMT is a respected organization with a highly valuable credential. We are honored to support them in their life-saving mission and we look forward to continuing our relationship."
