Does your exam program offer online proctored exams? Find out

Scheduling is easy: Simply select the option to “take my exam from home or work” during registration.

Convenience is key

OnVUE online proctoring allows you to take your certification exam securely from your home or office. With just a simple check-in process, involving ID verification, face-matching technology, and a live greeter, you can test without leaving the comfort of home.

Taking a test through OnVUE? Here’s what you need to do in advance:

  • Make sure you have a functioning home computer with a webcam and strong internet connection
  • Run a system check to test the compatibility of the OnVUE application
  • Have your government-issued ID ready to present during the check-in process (restricted IDs such as U.S. military IDs are not accepted)
  • Roommates or pets? Make sure your space is free from noise or distractions
  • Clear the room of any preparation materials or unauthorized items to avoid exam violations

Ready to run the system test? Start from your program's homepage.

Here’s what you can expect when you take your online proctored exam:

  • You’ll take photos of your government-issued ID and your testing environment, as well as a headshot (note: we are unable to accept restricted ID types such as U.S. military IDs)
  • Your photos will be reviewed and your exam will be queued up. Most candidates will start their exam within 15 minutes of their appointment time.
    • If your pictures don’t pass review, you’ll be joined by a greeter as soon as possible to help you troubleshoot.
  • You’ll be monitored by a VUE-certified proctor via webcam and microphone throughout your test to ensure the integrity and security of your exam experience.

Hear from test-takers like you

As you go through the check-in process, remember that the proctors aren’t trying to make things difficult. They’re just trying to uphold the integrity of the exam, which should be important to you, too, since you’ve worked so hard to earn the certification.
