Pearson VUE announces partnership with CrowdStrike to deliver security certifications

BLOOMINGTON, MN — February 9, 2021

Pearson VUE, global leader in computer-based testing, announced today that it has entered into a multi-year agreement to deliver security certifications for cybersecurity leader, CrowdStrike.

With a mission to protect its customers’ endpoints and workloads from breaches and cybersecurity attacks, CrowdStrike’s exam program, now delivered by Pearson VUE, offers candidates a portfolio of certifications to address the most critical aspects of cybersecurity facing businesses today. The test delivery partnership between the two technology companies, will create a new standard for individual security certifications for CrowdStrike customers, aimed at elevating them to the level of professional certification and licensure programs.

CrowdStrike’s candidates will now be able to take their CrowdStrike Falcon Certification Program (CFCP) exams online, using Pearson VUE’s online proctoring solution, OnVUE, or through its extensive global network of Pearson VUE authorized testing centers. Both options provide test-takers with flexible and convenient ways to take their cybersecurity certification exam. This flexibility has proven extremely critical in the wake of the pandemic and shift to remote working.

“With security so important in the cloud era, we are delighted to be the new test delivery partner for CrowdStrike. Our range of highly secure testing options are a fantastic fit for its high-stakes certification program. We look forward to offering great service levels and extending reach to its test-takers everywhere.”
