Within the past 24 hours, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have issued updated guidance on measures to be taken to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 disease. In particular, the CDC lowered the number of people that should be able to congregate in the same space from 50 to 10 in the United States. Given this new guidance, RESNA's testing company, Prometric has determined it is necessary and appropriate to close their test centers in the United States and Canada for a period of 30 days, starting on March 17.
Prometric is extending a liberal rescheduling policy due to COVID-19. Candidates that are impacted due test center closures or other concerns related to COVID-19 will have the $100 reschedule fee waived. If you have been impacted and need to reschedule, please contact RESNA at email@example.com.
