I was supposed to take the test today. I went to the site and only to find that there's nobody there. No table, no computer, nothing!! It seems that their business shutdown. Then I went to another test center nearby, hoping to take the test there, but I was told I couldn't without rescheduling the test first. What should I do? Anyone have the same experience?

Yes. The phone number provided is not in service anymore. I called prometric and they told me to call on Monday in office hour to explain the situation and reschedule the test.

I will only take certification exams at hub Prometric Centers. When looking
for a place to take my exams, I saw all kinds of community colleges and
strange sounding businesses offered as test sites. Rather than risk "issues"
at a small college, or worse yet, small business, I only go DIRECTLY to a
Prometric branded and operated facility. This often means travelling to a
nearby city. In my case, Burlington MA or Hartford CT.
I suspect that alot of "Mom & Pop" technology training centres are going
underwater these days... Best to avoid them.

Yes, I remember that on May 20, last day before my voucher would be expired, I walked to a test site, only finding that the door was locked and nobody answered my call. I then called Prometric, and they told me that test site had been closed, and resheduled me 2 days later. I then took half an hour in the rain to walk back to my home, and phoned my boss to tell him I need another day-off. Oh, I was on SCJD at that time. I hope it wouldn't happen again on my SCWCD test.
