In-person Testing

You should arrive at the testing facility about 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment to leave enough time for checking in. During the check-in process, you will be asked to sign in and present two forms of valid identification, one of which must be a photo ID.

Personal items will not be allowed into the testing room, so you will be asked to leave things like your phone, wallet, keys, and food items in your car or in a secure locker.

After you have been checked in and your personal items have been stored, you will be led to the testing area and given a brief overview of the testing system before starting your exam.

To take the exam remotely, you must use a non-touchscreen laptop or desktop computer, and you must have a working speaker, microphone, and camera hooked up.

Your environment must be private, with no traffic in and out of your testing area. The area where you take the exam must be clear of all personal items, and you will not be allowed to wear headphones. The proctor will ask you to move the camera around so that your testing area can be observed.

Once the proctor has determined everything is ready, they will walk you through the examination process.
