For candidates having difficulty locating an acceptable proctor, the National Collegiate Testing Association (NCTA) maintains a listing of potential testing centers on their website (https://www.ncta-testing.org/interactive-map).
Registering Your Proctor
For candidates who are selecting their own proctor, they must pre-approve the proctor with Fi360 in advance of sitting for the exam. To register a proctor, candidates must access the Examination portion of their Fi360 account, navigate to Courses & Exams, and click the link "Email Exam Code to Proctor". There, the candidate can enter the proctor’s email address which will trigger an immediate email to be sent to the proctor.
The proctor will immediately receive an email with detailed Fi360 Proctor Instructions. Fi360 Proctor Instructions for administering the examination. You may then coordinate with your proctor directly to schedule the examination attempt.
A proctor request will need to be resubmitted to Fi360 for any exam retake. Even if the same proctor is being used, it must be resubmitted.
If the candidate's designation application is selected for audit, Fi360 personnel will contact the proctor to verify authenticity of relationship with the candidate and proper protocol was followed. If it is determined the candidate falsified the proctor or submitted an unacceptable proctor, their designation application will be subject to discipline as detailed in the Qualification and Complaint Procedure.
