The Conference extends agreement with Pearson VUE

FAYETTEVILLE, AR – The International Conference of Funeral Service Examining Boards is proud to announce a five-year contract extension with Pearson VUE, a global leader in computer-based testing.


The renewal extends a long-term partnership between the two entities. Pearson VUE has been the sole provider of The Conference’s online exam administration since the organization shifted to computer-based testing in 2006.
