Over the past few years, Certiport has built a strong, partner-focused business model and developed the world’s largest testing distribution network. We have provided the leading foundational level certification programs from the biggest names in the industry such as Microsoft, HP and Adobe, and today we deliver more than two million exams across 150 countries annually.
The industry took notice of our hard work and success, and I am proud to announce that Certiport has been acquired by Pearson VUE. Pearson VUE is a leader in computer-based testing for information technology, government and professional testing programs around the world. As Certiport and Pearson VUE join forces, we will offer the most robust, end-to-end professional learning and assessment solutions across the globe.
Pearson VUE CEO Bob Whelan told me he was impressed with Certiport’s growth, employees, clients, and partners. As a CEO myself, acquisition by a top-notch company like Pearson validates all of the hard work our team has put in over the past few years to build a successful company.
Pearson was also attracted to Certiport because of our intense focus on customer service, which we will continue to provide as we operate independently with oversight from Pearson VUE. Our clients will also benefit from the expanded product offerings that will become available from our association with Pearson VUE.
I believe every person in the world should possess the skills they need to succeed in the workforce, and this transaction will further that goal and give us the power to help even more individuals earn certification.
