Barry Richardson, director of assessment at LAPT, said: “Our new agreement with Pearson VUE means a major upgrade for our candidates in terms of convenience. They will now have far greater access to our exam program in a high quality and consistent exam room environment. We can now concentrate our time energy on developing and refining exam content while Pearson VUE manages efficiently delivering the exams.”
