Proctors

Proctors

Some online courses with written examinations require a proctor to supervisor the exam.
 
You must make the arrangements for a proctor before you apply for the online course. If there's a charge, it's your cost
 
We have some general qualifications for a proctor.  Generally, a proctor needs to:
  • be approved by ETC

  • sign applicable agreements acknowledging their intention to comply with testing procedures and regulations
