Lightlearn Joins Global Pearson VUE Testing Network

Visalia, USA/CA – 16 September 2005 - Lightlearn today announced that it has signed an agreement with Pearson VUE, the electronic testing business of Pearson Education, to provide Information Technology certification test delivery using the Pearson VUE® Testing System. The Pearson VUE advanced computer-based testing system administers exams for leading IT certification programs such as Microsoft, Cisco Systems®, CompTIA, IBM and others through a global network of quality test centers.

“We’re very excited about our new partnership with Pearson VUE,” said Noel O’Donoghue, President and CEO of Lightlearn. “The Pearson VUE Testing System is the most powerful available. We’re pleased to partner with a company whose breakthrough technology and passion for service will allow us to provide even greater service for our customers.”

Among the technological advances of the Pearson VUE system is the ability of test candidates to register and reschedule their tests at the test center, on the Pearson VUE Web site or through a Pearson VUE call center, all in real time via the Internet. “The Pearson VUE Testing System gives us unparalleled control and flexibility over our ability to manage our business our way,” added Mr. O’Donoghue. “We will be much freer to experiment with testing hours and number of testing stations. We can easily offer same-day testing with the Pearson VUE TESTNOW™ capability, or bring testing to our customers’ locations. Everyone benefits.”

The growing list of IT certification tests accessible through the Pearson VUE system are delivered directly from the test sponsors. Test results are quickly transmitted back, ensuring the candidate’s certification status is promptly updated.
