What does a proctored exam mean?

For the Food Protection Manager exam, it is mandatory that the exam is supervised by a proctor. A proctor is an approved, neutral person who ensures the integrity of the environment, security of the exam, and to confirm the identity of the person taking the exam.

Why do exams have to be proctored?

Quite simply, it is to stop any possibility of cheating on the exam. This qualification is not just important for the examinee to get a job, it is also vital for the general public so people in charge of foodservice establishments fully understand every aspect of Food Safety.
