Self-study Exams

Candidates, rather than receiving accredited training, also have the option of self-studying for a certification using the official manual and then booking their examination directly with APMG. Public exams in the Australasia region can be completed either in paper format in Canberra or online from your own home through our ProctorU service.

The ProctorU service is available 24/7, which provides you the flexibility to schedule your exam at a time and date convenient to you. This online exam system works by allowing a live invigilator access to your PC while you complete your exam so they can monitor the exam environment through your computer’s webcam and microphone.

Please note for online exams: you will only be able to schedule your exam with a ProctorU invigilator once APMG have confirmed your exam booking.

To ensure availability, we recommend applying for your exam at least a week before the exam date.

Exam Locations

Online - Anywhere, Anytime 24/7!

Take your exam at home on a date and time that you schedule - exams completed through the ProctorU online service can be completed from the comfort of your own home using a stable internet connection, webcam and microphone. You do not need to travel to a centre to complete an exam using ProctorU.

Alternatively, paper-based exams are available at the following location:

  • Canberra - APMG-Australasia - Ground Floor, 101 Northbourne Ave, Canberra ACT 2601

Results and Certificates

Results are released via email within a week of the exam date. When you apply for your exam, please enter the email address you would like your results sent to. If you do not receive your result within a week of the exam date, please contact APMG Australasia.
