How to Register for the PRM Exam

Exam Cancellations/ Changes

In recognition of the busy and changing schedules of risk managers, you may change your exam appointment without charge through the Pearson VUE system. Please note that all change requests must be made at least one business day before the testing date or the entire exam fee will be forfeited.

Because of the flexibility in rescheduling, exam fees are non-refundable.

Testing Facility Policies

Arrive On Time

It is very important that you leave enough time to arrive at the testing center early. Candidates that arrive late to the test center may not be permitted to test. The full charge for the exam will be made if you are not admitted for any reason. As these centers offer exams for other organizations as well, not everyone in the room will be taking the same exam, so no assumptions should be made about when other candidates enter or leave the testing center.

Exam Administration

Each testing center has an administrator who can assist candidates with any questions that they may have. In the event of any incident (computer failure, inadequate supplies, excessive noise, or any other circumstance) which the candidate believes is not compatible with good examination conditions, this must be brought to the attention of the examination proctor immediately upon the incident being noticed – without continuing the exam. Failure to inform the proctor in this manner will invalidate any subsequent candidate incident reporting which cannot be substantiated by the test center.

Exam Security

The PRM exam is conducted under secure conditions. Any attempt by candidates to copy questions, by any means including organized memorizing, and to distribute these questions to other individuals, will be treated as unethical behavior and may result in penalties against the candidate which could include forfeit of any PRMIA certifications, vouchers, and possible expulsion from PRMIA. Incitement to copy, and usage of copied questions may also result in the same penalties.
