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.
