CrossFit and Pearson VUE Enter Computer-Based Testing Agreement

Pearson VUE

Pearson VUE, the global leader in computer based testing, has entered into a multi-year agreement with fitness and wellness giant CrossFit to deliver its coaching exams.

Pearson VUE will deliver the Certified CrossFit Trainer (CCFT) exam – a credential for experienced trainers who want to demonstrate a high level of CrossFit coaching knowledge and ability – via its network of over 5,000 test centers in 180 countries around the world.

Candidates can schedule their exam at a local and highly-secure test center on-demand, rather than having to attend a large exam hall on one particular day.

“I am delighted that CrossFit Coaches around the world will now be able to take their exams at a local test center on a time and date of their choosing thanks to this new agreement,” said Bob Whelan, the managing director of Pearson VUE, in a press release. “CrossFit has become a very popular fitness regime around the world, and increasing access to assessment for Coaches can only be a good thing.”

Nicole Carroll, the executive director of certification for CrossFit, also made a statement in the release. “A big factor in selecting Pearson VUE to deliver our CCFT exam is the large test center coverage they offer. This increases access and convenience for our trainer certification candidates globally,” she said.
