Proctoring Requirements for Course Final Exams

Proctoring for final exams on all 30-Hour courses (Pre-License and SAE) has been required by TREC since September 1, 2017.  The purpose of proctoring is to ensure that the student is the one taking the exam and that it is being taken “closed-book.”

Your proctor can monitor the final exam in person or via video conference (ex: Zoom, Google Hangouts). Upon passing the final exam, you must complete the affidavit with the proctor’s Name, Address, Phone, Email, Place of Employment, and Type of proctor (list below). If a Notary, then also the Notary License Number.

The easiest way to proctor the exams is via video conferencing as described above. Still, if a proctor is not available to you, we can switch your courses to Electronic Proctoring (RPS). With RPS proctoring, we are recording you taking the final exam using the camera on your computer. A VERY high-speed internet connection is required, and you must take the test in one sitting and be alone in the room.

The following are acceptable third party proctors:

(A) employees at official testing or learning/tutoring centers;
(B) librarians at a school, university, or public library;
(C) college, university, secondary, or elementary school – Administrators, faculty, teachers, or academic advisors
(D) clergy who are affiliated with a specific temple, synagogue, mosque, or church
(E) members of the court system – Judge, justice of the peace, magistrates, and prosecutors.
(F) law Enforcement Officers – Sergeant, lieutenant, or captain
(F) educational officers of a military installation or correctional facility.
