How to become an authorized Test Centre?

To become a Pearson English International Certificate Test Centre you should contact your local rep, who will connect you with the Pearson Implementation Team. They will provide you with the necessary information and help you with the administrative process to get the “Test Centre Approval”.

Once your institution has been approved as Authorized Centre, you will receive a Pearson English International Certificate Centre Number and an Accreditation Certificate. Soon after that, you and your staff will be trained by our Local Team to start implementing the exams autonomously.
