GCIH - Pearson Vue Cancellation

Has anyone had Pearson Vue cancel a test on them at the last minute? I just received an email from Pearson Vue that my GCIH test scheduled for this coming Tuesday was cancelled. The email apologized and told me to reschedule the test. Here's the problem, there are no testing centers within a 20 mile radius of my house that currently offer the test before the deadline (Sept 24th). There were plenty of testing facilities that had availability a few months ago when I scheduled the test, but now they don't.

This seems like extremely late notice and is really stressing me out. I called and left the SANS proctor an email message explaining the situation. I would assume that they may give me an extension so that I can reschedule the test. Has anyone had this happen to them?

    Never had that happen to me, but I can only assume SANS will extend things out to accommodate a later exam date.

    That sucks. I agree that if you present your case to SANS they will most likely extend it.

    GIAC will extend your test date, just give them a call and they have you write an email to GIAC.

    So they can cancel exams with little to no notice without repercussion but we either can't or face a fee? Sounds about right.

    Sorry for the late follow up, I sent the GIAC proctor an email and they gave me a one week extension. I was able to take the test the following week and passed.
