Exam Registration FAQs

Q. I receive an ERROR_CANDIDATE_NOT_FOUND error when connecting to my account at Pearson VUE. What should I do?
A. If you are registering for the first time, this indicates we were unable to transfer your details to Pearson VUE due to an issue with your profile. Please check you have a valid phone number (check that there are no spaces or periods in the phone number) and address including country. For address fields please check that the fields are 30 characters or shorter. If after updating you still have errors please contact our helpdesk using the address given on the screen.
Q. I have an accented character in my name. When transferred to Pearson VUE this appears as a question mark. What can I do?
A.There is a mismatch with character handling in the Pearson VUE side. As a workaround you should update your profile in The Open Group system to put the closest non-accented characters. To update your profile, please click here.  If you need assistance you can contact The Open Group helpdesk.
