How to Register for the ORM Exam

IMPORTANT Exam scores will not be visible on the PRMIA website if you do not follow this. When creating an account with Pearson VUE you will be asked for your PRMIA username. This will become your Pearson VUE "client question". If you do not replicate your PRMIA username in this field your exams scores will not associate properly to your PRMIA member page. Additionally, please do not create multiple accounts at Pearson VUE as this can also create difficulties in reporting exam results.
Pearson VUE will send you confirmation of your scheduled exam.
On the date of your appointment, arrive at the testing center at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. You must bring two forms of identification with you. The first must be a current government-issued ID with your photograph and signature. A digital signature using a signature pad and a digital photograph will be taken during the admissions process at the testing center. Candidates must sign-in and sign-out of the testing center.

Exam Cancellations/ Changes
In recognition of the busy and changing schedules of risk managers, you may change your exam appointment without charge through the Pearson VUE system. Please note that all change requests must be made at least one business day before the testing date or the entire exam fee will be forfeited.
Because of the flexibility in rescheduling, exam fees are non-refundable.
Testing Facility Policies
Arrive On Time
It is very important that you leave enough time to arrive at the testing center early. Candidates that arrive late to the test center may not be permitted to test. The full charge for the exam will be made if you are not admitted for any reason. As these centers offer exams for other organizations as well, not everyone in the room will be taking the same exam, so no assumptions should be made about when other candidates enter or leave the testing center.
Each testing center has an administrator who can assist candidates with any questions that they may have. In the event of any incident (computer failure, inadequate supplies, excessive noise, or any other circumstance) which the candidate believes is not compatible with good examination conditions, this must be brought to the attention of the examination proctor immediately upon the incident being noticed – without continuing the exam. Failure to inform the proctor in this manner will invalidate any subsequent candidate incident reporting which cannot be substantiated by the test center.
The Associate PRM exam is conducted under secure conditions. Any attempt by candidates to copy questions, by any means including organized memorizing, and to distribute these questions to other individuals, will be treated as unethical behavior and may result in penalties against the candidate which could include forfeit of any PRMIA certifications, fees, and possible expulsion from PRMIA. Incitement to copy, and usage of copied questions may also result in the same penalties.
