Which Proctoring Method is Right for You

You’ve done your course, and you are now ready to take your certification exam.

Food Protection Manager Certification exams require that the exam be proctored. If your business does not offer internal proctoring, you will have to find another way to proctor your exam—whether that’s online or in-person.

If you are debating whether to have your exam proctored in-person or online, here are some things to think about when making your decision.

Benefits of remote proctoring

If you want to save money, remote proctoring is more affordable than a traditional testing center.

It is also more flexible. You can take the exam at whatever location works best for you, and you can select a time that works with your schedule.

However, you will need to have the correct equipment in order to take the exam. This includes a working webcam and microphone, as well as an updated browser. A tablet will not work, so you will need a laptop or desktop. If you do not have this equipment yourself, you will have to find a way to get access to this.

We partner with ProctorU to administer online exams.

Benefits of in-person proctoring

Some people just like to do things the traditional way. If you prefer to do things in-person as opposed to online, or lack the proper equipment, then an in-person proctor might be the right choice for you.

To take an exam in-person, you can find a proctor or testing center in your area.
