Exam Impacts Due to COVID-19

Please bookmark this page for all updates on ABFAS examination impacts due to COVID-19.


COVID-19 Restrictions Limit Testing Seats for Spring Exams


Pearson VUE testing centers are at half capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions.  More testing seats are expected to open as local restrictions are lifted. Meanwhile, do not use the Consecutive Appointment feature to schedule multiple exams back-to-back. Instead, schedule each exam independently.  You may contact Pearson VUE for assistance at 800-511-6951 Mon–Fri, 7:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. CT. If you need further help please email us at scheduling@abfas.org. We’ll do everything we can to get you scheduled.


Recertification and Self-assessment Examination Cancellations


During this last year, ABFAS has had to make a number of adjustments to ABFAS examination timing due to COVID-19 impacts. 2021 is the year that ABFAS is piloting the new Continuous Certification program with the goal of implementing the new program in 2022. In recognition of these factors, the ABFAS Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2021 Self-assessment and Recertification exams. We have communicated directly with those Diplomates who are affected by this change. If you did not receive the email communications, please contact our office.
