A quick heads up that our EA Exam Training Program teacher, TaxMama® Eva Rosenberg, has informed me that there have been some problems lately with Prometric, the company that administers the EA Exam.
You know, Prometric, where you go to their “testing center” and they put you at a computer, give you the instructions, and then you sit there and take your exam.
Prometric has been canceling at the last minute some EA exam test dates, saying they don’t have the staff that’s trained to administer this test.
We had one recent student who had studied for MONTHS and then received notice at the last minute that he had to reschedule his test…and his new test location was 200 miles away from his house!
NOTE: purpose of this email is NOT to knock Prometric; all businesses are “going through some stuff” during these Pandemic times, especially related to staffing issues.
Couple tips to avoid issues:
- If you (or someone you know) are looking to schedule your EA exam test dates, you should schedule far in advance.
- Consider contacting the Prometric testing center and make sure they have enough staff to guarantee that you’ll be able to take the test on the day you schedule.
This issue reminds me of the reason why we feel our EA Exam Preparation Program stacks up strong against ANY other option:
Because of the TEACHER.
Eva is THE best tax teacher that I know of.
She actually teaches the materials in a way that you can understand.
A great teacher makes a BIG difference, wouldn’t you agree?
Plus, Eva FIGHTS for her students. She has escalated this Prometric rescheduling exams at the last minute issue to the highest levels of the IRS. She is truly committed to seeing her students become SUCCESSFUL Enrolled Agents.
If you (or someone you know) want to talk about this by phone, please click here to schedule a phone call with my colleague, Yuri Jimenez. We realize becoming an EA or assisting someone else to become an EA often requires a conversation before you would decide, and we are happy to answer any questions you might have.
Hope this helps!
