A Message From Paragon Testing Enterprises:
As a result of COVID-19 precautions, we have halted a significant volume of testing. Please see below for an update on necessary suspension of testing in Canada and the US, current testing availability in other markets, and our commitment to supporting you during these difficult times with additional free online instruction and reduced study material prices.
Please know that we are also working to ensure that once COVID-19 precautions have been lifted, you will be able to resume your testing schedule.
