ECMS Exam with Perason View

All I can say is I am in the wrong line of business !!!


I have just gone to book my ECMS Online exam with Pearson View and nearly fainted ...... £300.00 for a 90 min exam thats the equivalent of £200 / hour even the UK Prime Minister only gets £40/hour.


Am I missing something here that would make me accept that this fee is justified ?


Does Meraki offer any vouchers to help cover these costs, when I did the SonicWall proctored exam with them the first two attempts where covered by SonicWall and then it was only £100 for each attempt thereafter (not that I needed them :-).  )

Of course it’s not justified. Pearson has a monopoly and can and do charge what they wish.


Cisco certs are a gravy train for them. Choo choo.

300 is about the price of any proctored exam though.


Cisco exams are the same.

I feel it is a rip off as well.  Especially when delivered online.


I'm sure it is an expensive business delivering exams globally but come on.

imagine living in a 3rd world country and trying to keep up with all of these certs.

Imagine failing, but we have no choice but to carry on
