AUA Extension is an official representative of Prometric in the region accepting test-takers from Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Russia, and other parts of the world. The Pace Setters Certificate of Achievement is a result of the AUA Extension Prometric team’s consistency in maintaining strict security protocols in test administration.
“This is another achievement AUA Extension is proud to share with the community. Test Center manager Anna Maghakyan (MBA ‘14), as well as administrators Hasmik Gevorgyan and Armine Poghosyan have joined the Extension team recently, and it is great to see such success in a short time.

On February 5, 2019, the AUA Prometric team had successfully passed a secret shopping test, a procedure organized by the Prometric Global Security team, during which secret shoppers register as regular test-takers and attempt to breach test center security rules. The secret shop test is conducted every two years and is a critical component of earning the achievement award.
