Our Commitment to Accessibility
At Pearson VUE, we believe the capacity for growth lies in all of us. As the global leader in high-stakes assessments and exam delivery, we are committed to setting a professional standard by providing equitable access to learning and testing for all candidates, including people with sensory, physical, and cognitive impairments.
To that end, our websites, products, and services are designed and developed in accordance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Levels A and AA, and section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act. We are committed to removing barriers to accessibility and improving our products and services for everyone.

Pearson VUE Accessibility Conformance Reports
The Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) is “the leading global reporting format for assisting buyers and sellers in identifying information and communications technology (ICT) products and services with accessibility features.” They are the creators of the VPAT® (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template). VPATs are used as a source to create Accessibility Conformance Reports (ACR). The Pearson VUE Accessibility team uses the latest versions of ITI VPATs to develop ACRs. ITI VPATs cover the following ICT accessibility standards: Section 508 (U.S.), EN 301 549 (EU), and W3C/WAI WCAG.
