State HCA Testing:
Prometric has CANCELLED ALL Home Care Aide state testing until at least JULY 1. We have no control over this process. Please contact Prometric directly to find out when testing will resume and when your test will be rescheduled.
They should have sent an email letting you know that testing has been cancelled and give your further instructions. If you don't see this email in your inbox, try checking your spam folder.

Over the past several weeks, Prometric has closely monitored the ever-changing events associated with the spread of the COVID-19 virus in countries around the world, and has made decisions impacting our site and corporate operations based on ordinances from local, state, and federal governments, as well as recommendations from the CDC and WHO.
If your exam appointment is impacted by these closure extensions, you will receive an email notification informing you that your appointment has been canceled, and instructions for how to reschedule for a future date. No rescheduling fees will be applied, and we are working with your exam sponsor to ensure all program requirements are met. Please note that if you choose to contact Prometric for assistance, hold times may be extended due to the volume of individuals we are attempting to support. We thank you for your patience.
