24/7 exams

Taking your exam is easy. Our online proctoring system enables you to take your exam anytime. If you prefer a paper test you can schedule an exam at a public centre or through one of our Accredited Training Organizations who include the exam as part of the training course.

If you are taking an exam online - our Technical Helpdesk is available to help 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week.

*Please note that if you wish to take an exam for an AXELOS certification - you must do so by December 30 2017.


At Home and Online

Take an online exam from the comfort of your own home or office with online proctoring.

You will need a computer with a webcam, microphone and high-speed internet connection. A wireless internet connection is not recommended as it may disrupt your exam. Candidates should be aware that if any part of the re-examination criteria is not performed correctly, the exam will automatically get a breach result.

There are two options available:

Proctor U

  • It's just like having the proctor in the exam room with you but you don't need to travel.
  • A proctor will access your exam as you take it to monitor the exam environment through your computer's desktop, webcam and microphone.
  • Once you have booked an exam you will be given a registration email to schedule an appointment with your live proctor via our Candidate Portal.

Remote Proctor Now (RPNow)

  • Start the Remote Proctor at any time – no pre-agreed time required.
  • Simple and convenient – just follow the on-screen instructions to comply with the exam rules before starting your exam.
  • Once you have booked an exam you will be given a registration email to take your exam via our Candidate Portal.

When taking an online exam in an office environment you may need local administrator permissions on your computer and your office firewall may block necessary connections.

Both ProctorU and RPNow include a system check which we recommend you try before entering your exam.

Classroom or Public Centre

Take an exam as part of a training course or book a self-study exam to take one at of our public exam centres.

Many Accredited Training Organizations provide traditional classroom-based training. The exam is usually taken on paper either during or at the end of the training course.

Once you've completed an exam your paper answer sheets are collected by the proctor and sent back to APMG International for marking.

Once marked - your ATO will inform you of your exam results.

Your electronic certificate will be available to download from the candidate portal and your name added the successful candidate database. Paper certificates are available on request.

Some ATOs utilize our exclusive SelfScan® exam-marking system. Upon finishing an exam in the classroom - SelfScan provides candidates with an instant preliminary result, giving you an indication of how well you've performed.

This innovative technology allows your proctor to scan your exam answer sheets into our systems as soon as the exam session is over.

Your answers are then transmitted to APMG International for marking and your provisional result is sent back immediately.

Choose a certification to find a training course delivered by one of our Accredited Training Organizations.

We also run public exam centres around the world, allowing you to self-study for a certification and then book the examination at one of our centres.
