The Montana Commissioner of Insurance Renews Contract with Pearson VUE
Bloomington, Minn., January 20, 2012 – Pearson VUE, the computer-based testing business of Pearson, announced today that the Montana Commissioner of Insurance has renewed its contract with Pearson VUE to conduct application screening, develop and administer computer-based exams, and provide continuing education services. The five-year contract was awarded earlier this year following a competitive bidding process.
Since 1990, Pearson VUE has worked closely with the Montana Commissioner of Insurance to administer the insurance licensure examination program. In addition to exam administration, Pearson VUE will continue to provide test development and on-site digital fingerprinting services for the Commissioner.
“Over the past 22 years, we have had the privilege of developing a collaborative partnership with the Montana Commissioner of Insurance that has allowed us to play an active role in program developments and changes,” said Art Valentine, senior vice president of professional services and general manager of regulatory services of Pearson VUE. “We’re looking forward to leveraging our extensive program knowledge and creative solutions to help the Commissioner’s office protect consumers through efficient regulation.”
Robert Whelan, president and chief executive officer of Pearson VUE said, “Retaining a long-term client like the Montana Commissioner of Insurance is a testament to Pearson VUE’s commitment to service and innovation and to the power of partnering with clients as opposed to merely serving their needs. We’re thrilled that the Montana Commissioner of Insurance has decided to continue our relationship, and we look forward to developing the solutions that will help the program continue to run smoothly.”
