The Fire Protection Professional Engineer examination is continuing as scheduled and will be administered on October 22, 2020. The Pearson Vue testing facilities are open following the local regulations for the test center location. Most of these facilities
are operating near 50 percent capacity, which means seats are limited. Once you have been approved by your state board it is imperative to register for your testing seat as soon as possible.
SFPE, NCEES, and Pearson Vue are all aware that testing on October 22nd has limited seating availability. The best course of action is to contact NCEES directly through your “MyNCEES” account so they can track the issue and work towards solutions. If
you are in a situation where you cannot get the test site you desire, there are wait lists and cancellations do occur regularly. NCEES has published the following:
“Please note that there are seats available for exams at testing centers. While they might be a couple of hours away, there is that option as well as being able to test in other states. Pearson VUE must operate in compliance with local guidelines and restrictions. Due to varying government restrictions, capacity has been reduced at many test centers to comply with social distancing requirements. Appointments may be limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. NCEES is aware that this has caused scheduling issues for some candidates. NCEES is monitoring the situation and is working with Pearson VUE to evaluate other testing options. In the meantime, please continue to check for availability; there may be cancellations or additional appointments added to a test center’s calendar as capacity increases in some areas. NCEES will notify you if other testing options become available.”

if there are questions related to that process.
