In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Certification Commission of NAMSS (CCN) is excited to announce that our accreditation body NCCA has approved Live Online Proctoring (LOP) for the fall testing window (October 10-31st). Candidates who apply and are approved to test during the Fall testing window, will have 2 options to take their exam: at a Scantron test center or via Live Online Proctoring. Live Online Proctoring (LOP) allows you to take your exam from the comfort of your own home or location of your choosing on your own computer while being monitored live by an offsite proctor through your webcam.
Testing sessions are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week, based on seating availability. Your computer must have webcam capability as well as a microphone and speakers, and you should be in a quiet environment to avoid distractions and to ensure that the online proctor can hear everything in your location. You must also have an adequate internet connection and updated software installed on your computer. A full listing of the technical requirements will be provided in your scheduling email from Scantron one month from the testing window.
