A proctor can be a supervisor at your job, a clergy member, a representative from a testing/learning center at a college, local university, or a library. A proctor cannot be a family member or personal friend.
Every proctor must have an email address and access to the internet. You will receive an email confirming the delivery of the exam information to your proctor. At this time, you will contact your proctor to make arrangements to take the exam.
