The American Society for NDT - ASNT is excited to announce expansion of its computer-based testing (CBT) internationally effective 3 January 2017.

It was May 2016 when ASNT first announced its chosen partner, Pearson VUE for the administration of CBT.
Candidates will now experience streamlined scheduling by having the option to schedule via phone or online 24/7 at a worldwide network of Pearson VUE exam centers which also includes National Sponsoring Organizations (NSO’s) and current Authorized Examination Centers (AEC’s) from which to choose.
Once your application is approved, you will receive an email when the computer-based testing scheduling system is open for you to create your Pearson VUE account. Schedule your computer-based examination at a Pearson VUE exam center, NSO or AEC.
The majority of NDT examinations are automatically graded and therefore the candidate will receive their NDT examination results immediately at the test center. Examinations with essay responses will not receive onsite results as they require additional validation.
