    What to expect

    Online exams are secure. It is important to prepare your environment and test your system so that you have a smooth exam writing experience. For example you will need to verify your id with a government id card. You will be connected to a live proctor, who will do a security check of your environment via your phone and computer camera to ensure you follow exam rules, e.g. no other people present, no books, no paper, or cellphone. The proctor will be able to see you write your exam. You will be able to chat with the proctor if you have any technical issues. 

    Here is a video to help prepare you for what to expect during your online exam. 

    Here is a step by step video to help you book your exam.
