BEIJING, CHINA, January 31, 2018 – Pearson VUE, the global computer-based testing (CBT) leader, announced today that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, to deliver Alibaba Cloud Certification exams via Pearson VUE’s network.
Now candidates are able to take Alibaba Cloud Certification English exams, including ACP Cloud Computing Certification Exam, ACP Cloud Security Certification Exam, ACA Cloud Computing Certification Exam and ACA Cloud Security Certification Exam, on Pearson VUE’s computer-based testing system within its network of over 5,000 highly secure and local test centers in 180 countries.
The partnership offers greater conveniences to candidates to get Alibaba Cloud Certification by allowing them to schedule their test on demand on a date and time of their choice, whereas previously the exams were delivered during limited period of time at fixed locations.
Bosheng Zhao, Vice President, China at Pearson VUE, said: “We are delighted to partner with Alibaba Cloud and bring benefits to candidates by offering them access to Alibaba Cloud Certification exams on our global computer-based testing network. Candidates can now take the test at a local test center rather than spending time and money travelling to a distant exam hall.”
“By leveraging Pearson VUE’s computing-based testing solutions and its extensive global network, Alibaba Cloud will be able to further expand our global ecosystem of certified cloud talents, make our inclusive cloud technology accessible in more regions, and enable the digital transformation by empowering people with the expertise of our advanced technology,” said Derek Wang, Chief Architect of Alibaba Cloud International.
