LOMA exams at Prometric ending this year

LOMA exams at Prometric ending this year

 Permanent link

For many years, students have had the option of sitting for their proctored LOMA exams at Prometric Testing Centers. However, increased costs and decreased volume have resulted in Prometric testing no longer being a good fit for LOMA’s proctored exams. Starting in 2021, all proctored exams will be delivered via I*STAR testing sites at member companies.

Effective October 1, 2020, students can no longer enroll for Prometric exams.

Effective January 1, 2021, LOMA exams will no longer be offered at Prometric testing sites.

What This Means for New Enrollments
  • Beginning October 1, LOMA’s learning system will no longer offer a Prometric option for new enrollments.
What This Means for Current Prometric Enrollments
  • As of October 1, if a learner’s current Prometric enrollment is due to expire on or before December 31 2020, the student must complete their exam by the expiration date. No extensions will be granted.
  • As of October 1, if a learner’s current Prometric enrollment is due to expire after December 31, 2020, the student may either
    • Elect to take their exam at a Prometric facility until December 31, 2020 or
    • Contact us and we will enroll them in the self-proctored version of the course. Prometric fees will be refunded, and their course access period will be extended for an additional 6 months when they change to the self-proctored format.

Most exams for LOMA designation courses now offer self-proctored options — more will be available before year-end.

What This Means for Learners

If a learner wants to take a course exam at Prometric, they will need to successfully complete the exam by 6:00 pm Eastern Time on December 31, 2020. After this date, no LOMA exams will be offered at Prometric. No extensions are available. Students are responsible for scheduling their exams with their local Prometric Testing Center.
