BICSI has signed a contract with Pearson VUE, the computer-based testing business of Pearson plc, that will see the company deliver BICSI’s eight credentialing examinations, including the Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) credential.

The exams will be transitioned from paper-and-pencil delivery to computer-based testing and will be available throughout the Pearson VUE Authorized Test Center network of an estimated 4,500 sites in 165 countries.

Computer-based delivery of the Data Center Design Consultant (DCDC) exam will begin in February 2012, with the remaining exams to follow.

“Moving our credentialing program from paper-based exams to computer-based testing is a major milestone for us,” said BICSI president Brian Hansen.

In addition to the RCDD and DCDC, BICSI will begin offering computer-based testing for the Registered Information Technology Professional (RITP), Registered Telecommunication Project Manager (RTPM), Electronic Safety and Security (ESS) Designer, Network Technology Systems (NTS) Designer, Outside Plant (OSP) Designer, and Wireless Designer (WD) credentials throughout 2012 and 2013.
