Welcome to PESA-P Assessment Exams.

For more information about PESA-P please visit the IDI website.


Exam appointments should be made in advance of the day you wish to test, subject to availability. You can schedule and pay for your exam through Pearson VUE either online or by telephone. PESA-P candidates will not be able to make a same day booking.

The exam/appointment testing time varies per exam and reflects the total appointment time, including a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), exam time, or other screens.

If you are a candidate who has been notified that you have no access to a test centre, you should book a computer-based exam through Pearson VUE using the access code provided by IDI.

To schedule your PESA-P assessment exams, log in via the IDI LMS.


PESA-P candidates may reschedule their exam (subject to availability) at no additional cost up to 72 hours before they are due to take the assessment exam. Failure to do so will result in the candidate losing their fee.
