“Prometric has been a longtime partner of ASE, providing first-class testing options for service professionals in North America,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO.

“With Prometric’s recent acquisition of Paragon Testing Enterprises, there are now more test-location options available throughout Canada for those pursuing ASE certification and recertification.”

Headquartered in Vancouver with a satellite office in Toronto, Prometric has expanded its footprint in Canada with two more corporate locations added to the existing 13 that Prometric has been operating in Canada.

The acquisition of Paragon also brings an opportunity for ASE to partner with over 50 additional Paragon partner-sites including schools, learning centers and other testing facilities, helping Prometric expand in the Northwest Territories, Yukon and Saskatchewan.
