* TEST CENTER DATE AVAILABILITY:  Pearson VUE testing centers may vary on their ABO Exam date availability based on the demand in their area.  Some centers may have all 4 ABO Exam dates available, and others may only offer the ABO Exam on 2-3 of the designated dates.  Examinees are advised to plan accordingly and schedule an available date once Pearson VUE registration opens up (approximately 60 days prior to the exam start date) in order to secure a seat.  The examinee always has the option to check back with their designated Pearson VUE center at a later date (<30 days prior to exam start date) to see if additional dates have been added allowing for rescheduling.
