Education & Certification
You can now take your exam from home!
Starting May 27, 2020, North America residents can now register and test using OnVUE, PearsonVUE's online proctoring exam delivery system, from the comfort of their home or office.
Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC) and Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) examinations administered via online proctoring through August 29, 2020, will feature questions based on federal laws and regulations in effect as of January 1, 2019.
OnVUE exams are available to residents in North America ONLY. Online proctored exams are not available for International candidates.
OnVUE leverages artificial intelligence, in combination with live monitoring, to ensure exams are protected using state-of-the-art technology. All OnVUE exams should be treated similar to an exam at a physical test center. OnVUE exams require zero interruptions or the proctor may terminate the exam.
Candidates must review the OnVUE Frequently Asked Questions (below), the Step-by-Step Guide to Online Testing, and the APA OnVUE exam delivery page for information regarding system requirements and policies.
Eligibility and application requirements, and other policies stated in the FPC and CPP Candidate Handbook, still apply. To test online effectively, candidates must meet the minimum system requirements prior to scheduling the exam.
