With remote proctoring, you now have the option to write your CMP® or SCMP® certification exam from the comfort of your own home or office at a time that works for you.
Announced in August 2022, the Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC) offers a 100% cloud-based option which features a simple interface with a stress-free environment, which means for some, taking an exam has never been easier!
Traditionally these exams only took place in-person in limited locations. Thankfully thanks to GCCC’s partnership with Prolydian/Examity, each candidate now has the flexibility to choose the exam option that works best for them.
Benefits of remote-proctored exams:
|Reduced costs||If the closest exam to you isn’t in your city, an online exam will save money on travel and accommodation. Exam fees are still applicable.|
|Time||While you should prepare well ahead of your exam, in-person exams may not work for your schedule. Remote proctoring is booked at your convenience to suit your schedule.|
|Comfort||Writing exams in-person can be challenging for some people and nerves can get in the way. Now you can write the exam in the comfort of your home or office.|
How does it work?
- Submit your CMP® or SCMP® certification application to GCCC.
- Once approved to take the exam, you can schedule your online exam for any day at any time, but just not on the same day you were approved.
- You will be assigned a proctor who will observe you remotely while you complete your exam.
IABC/BC will continue to offer in-person exams, but it is expected that this additional exam option will support more communications professionals to achieve their CMP® and SCMP® certification, the only professional certifications that meet the global standard.
When you’re ready, take that step to become certified to showcase your knowledge and expertise, and provide evidence of your abilities.
