Global Growth Chart

Why Go Global?

International markets provide test owners significant business growth opportunities, especially for organizations where their home markets have matured.  One strategic objective for organizations of all sizes in all industries is to grow – increasing organizational membership, penetrating previously underserved markets, and improving financial results.  At Prometric, we understand these imperatives and are ready and able to use our on-the-ground expertise to guide our clients through their global expansion planning and connect them to important people and resources

Whether you need to deliver a high stakes certification exam or an assessment for a smaller certificate program, you can count on Prometric for best-in-class test development and test delivery services. We reduce complexity and time-to-market for global certifications. 

Emerging Market Opportunities

Emerging markets are increasingly accounting for a larger percentage of organizational membership, certification volume, and program revenue. Entering these markets can be time-consuming and costly, especially if key market factors are not sufficiently understood. Two such markets that are appealing to most certification organizations but represent operational, financial and brand risk are India and China.

Markets to consider:

India is not only the fastest growing economy in the world, but it is also an English-speaking country where localization and translation are not necessary. With 17 percent of the global population, as well as being home to an exploding services sector and 1 and 4 of college graduates in the world, credentialing organizations should look to take advantage of this market.

Prometric has been delivering exams in India for more than 25 years.

Our local infrastructure encompasses:

  • Strategically located corporate test centers in 8 major cities
  • Flexible testing in 70 locations across 40 cities through our solid network of university and business partners
  • Full-service testing solutions that mirror our global headquarters’ services
  • Corporate office in Gurgaon in the National Capital Region

Home to the world’s second largest economy, China is looking to maintain its growth by transforming from an inward-facing manufacturing base to an innovative technology-and-service-based global economy.  Offering a large market where individuals and state-enterprises have great interest in further education and career advancement, China is an attractive market to certification organizations.

Prometric has been delivering exams in China for more than two decades.  

We have:

  • a corporate office in Beijing with tenured staff
  • test center coverage in the densely populated eastern region of the country where 94% of the population lives
  • consistent and strict security measurement
  • testing services to take organizations from planning through delivery
