DU Testing Sites:

  • Grand Rapids W. A. Lettinga Campus

Candidates are encouraged to schedule their exams online through the Pearson VUE website at  But Pearson VUE does offer three different methods of registration:

  • Online - after selecting the exam program (such as Cisco Systems), click the "Schedule a Test" button and follow the instructions.
  • Telephone or e-mail - after selecting the exam program (such as Cisco Systems), click on the "Schedule by phone" button for the phone number of a Pearson VUE agent or an e-mail form or go directly to the list of programs and their contact information.

When a candidate has completed the registration process, they will receive an appointment confirmation letter by e-mail or ground mail. NREMT candidates must register for testing via NREMT and Pearson VUE directly. Testing centers are not allowed to directly schedule NREMT candidates.

Cancellation or Rescheduling:

All cancellations and rescheduling must be done through Pearson VUE and at least 24 hours before the scheduled testing appointment or risk forfeiture of payment. 

ID on Day of Testing:

ID requirements vary by test.  Most often primary and secondary IDs are required, both containing signatures.  When you register, you will receive an e-mail from Pearson VUE explaining your specific ID requirements.
