What You Need to Know

In-Person Testing

As noted above, you’ll need to bring your exam confirmation number as well as two (2) valid, signed, government-issued photo IDs to the test center for verification.

Prometric advises arriving at least 30 minutes before your exam time to complete the check-in process.

Review Prometric’s frequently asked questions to learn more about scheduling, test administration, and more.

Remote Testing

Remote assessment is a convenient testing option but necessitates that your system requirements and workstation meet the ProProctor requirements.

Before the exam, you’ll run a system readiness check to ensure your computer is compatible with the ProProctor application. You can then download and install the program and complete further system testing.

On test day, login 15 minutes early to complete your check-in process online, including showing your photo IDs*, guided by a live agent. Review Prometric’s frequently asked questions to learn more.

*For online testing, IDs will be photographed. Any identification that is not permitted to be photographed, such as a military ID, should not be used as one of the two required government-issued photo IDs.
