Pearson VUE enters exams agreement with Abu Dhabi QCC

ABU DHABI, May 29, 2018

Pearson VUE, a global leader in computer-based testing, has entered into an agreement with the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC) to develop and deliver its skills verification examination programme across a wide range of sectors.
 
The new agreement means that Pearson VUE will deliver the exams via its network of highly secure and convenient test centres across the UAE. Candidates have the convenience of booking their test for a date and time of their choice, said a statement from Pearson.
 
As part of the agreement, Pearson VUE’s team of measurement scientists will work with QCC’s team to convert its personnel conformity schemes into valid, reliable and fair exams. Sectors covered include construction, agriculture, cosmetics car mechanics, hazard material management, pest control theory and pest control practical tests.
 
Matthew Poyiadgi, vice president of Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Pearson VUE, said: “Our new partnership will allow candidates from around the world to prove their skills to a potential employer in the Middle East, while also providing a development path where higher level exams can be taken at the end of the two year certification validity. It will also mean a potential increase in income and living standards” 
 
Engineer Abdulla Hassan Al Muaini, executive director of conformity scheme services at QCC, said: "We have signed this agreement with PVUE as part of our priority to galvanise our efforts and optimise the use of resources in achieving our shared objectives. We selected Pearson VUE due to their team’s focus on quality and test room security, along with a proven ability to run complex high-stakes examination programme.” – TradeArabia News Service
