I agree, but they say it is in the testing centre information, though we have 
never seen it.

That said, I tried the fix just now and you are talking to a newly certified 
Adobe Premiere Pro!

Open Chrome and drag the testing centre icon onto it. Works like a charm.

Thanks for looking into this Sue, you'd think that they'd create the test 
platform to be compatible with any browser, or at the least, provide the 
information for test centres.

Sue,
Thank you for finding out about this. Probably better this happened to us and 
not students.
Once you have retaken the test I think it is worth us speaking to our sales rep 
about the vouchers.

I agree it seems odd. However, the first four tests were developed two years 
ago, when Safari and IE were the standard. Illustrator and InDesign were 
developed in the past six months and Chrome has become the defacto standard 
browser lately it seems as many web based software apps that have limited 
budges are developing for only one browser to save funds are are choosing that 
one in particular.

Anyway, I hope this information helps. I will be trying the test again this 
afternoon, using the correct browser, and will let everyone know if it resolved 
the issue.

Hi Gang,

Ohhhh, so that's why I failed Premiere Pro...for a while there I thought it was 
because I was not a pro!

On a serious note, thanks Sue for finding this out...it will be useful for the 
future!  Although, I must say, it seems odd that the testing system is set up 
that way.

Tim

Subject: [AAMT] Certiport and Premiere Pro exam results from our AAMT meeting

Hi Colin and all,

I am on the phone with one of the tech guys at Certiport trying to resolve the 
testing environment issues we are having with our PCs at CBE. While I had him 
on the phone, I spoke to him about the issue we had with the Premiere Pro exams 
at our AAMT session two weeks ago.

He has indicated that there are some scoring issues with exams if the device is 
using the wrong browser.The challenge is that some of the exams need Safari 
(InDesign and Illustrator) and some need Chrome (Photoshop, Premiere, 
Dreamweaver, and Flash). Since Premiere Pro exam needs to be taken using 
Chrome, if it was run using Safari, he said that it looks like it works, but 
there can be issues with scoring.

Apparently when you click the desktop icon, it will launch the exam in whatever 
the default browser is set as. So when you want to take exams on the browser 
that is not the default, you need to open the correct browser first and then 
drag and drop the desktop icon onto the correct browser to launch it.

I am not sure which browser is the default at your lab in Rocky View, Colin, 
but that may have been part of the problem. I hope this helps. Unfortunately, 
we wasted at least 6 vouchers on exams that produced invalid results. I am not 
sure whether we want to ask for replacements or not. They have said we would 
need to go through our regional sales person.
