SYSTEM UPDATE: SEPARATE Check Point ACCOUNTS

If you have tested with other organizations through Pearson VUE, a new account will be created for you that only contains your Check Point exam registrations and history. Some test-takers may be temporarily unable to access their accounts today ( ).

To resolve login issues during this time, you should first try the account recovery process. If that does not resolve your issue, try again later or contact customer service.

Your original account will retain exams for any other organization and may be accessed on the respective login page.

To access your new Check Point account, click Forgot my username and provide the required information, then your new username will be displayed on-screen. Next, click “Forgot my password” and complete the steps to access your new Check Point account.

NOTE: If you have an OnVUE exam scheduled during this time, you may use the check-in link found in your appointment confirmation or reminder emails to take your exam.
