4 months ago I found out that I have 2 accounts with Prometric: with different testing IDs. I called them and asked to merge the accounts. They fixed that, but now when I'm trying to log in I get an error message. Interestingly, when I use their 'forgot password' feature I successfully get an e-mail with my login and password - the same ones that fail to get me in! Reporting this issue to Prometric haven't helped much: thay only say "PLease send an e-mail with your problem to webmaster@prometric.com". I've sent 4 such e-mails so far and no response. I'm very surprised such a reputable organization doesn't have a well-defined online account support procedure. :roll:

Of course I can register for my test by phone, but this juts takes much more time. If anybody has an experience of solving similar issues with Prometric, please share it.

Well, it looks like using a phone is the best option to communicate
with Prometric.
Last when time I tried to schedule test, I was not able to pass
voucher validation point - I have got timeout on validation request.

But calling them was not that bad - the service was fast and friendly...

Wow, that's exactly what was happening to me 4 months ago! And when I called them they just apologized for "temporary issues". But the same happened yesterday! Looks like their temporary issues tend to be permanent.
Now, yesterday I discovered that you can create literally an unlimited number of profiles with the same testing ID. The only thing they check is your e-mail. So, now I have 2 testing IDs and 3 profiles with different e-mails. .
Another astonishing discovery: as soon as I created my new profile and check the history, I found an exam that I've never even taken. The exam was taken in 2003 in Russia(!). I suspect somebody with the same name took that exam, but how on earth could this exam appear in my testing history?!

Oh boy, Prometric does have a nice "enterprise application". And the technical support of this application is rock solid and highly available: you can be sure you won't get a response from "webmaster" 24x7. At least I never did. I wonder if they ever thought about hiring at least on of the thousands of those SCEAs.

For the sake of fairness I should confirm: yes, their live CSRs are professional and friendly.
 
That's a very big dog. I think I want to go home now and hug this tiny ad:
