Fi360 examinations must be completed under the supervision of an acceptable proctor. The requirement for a proctor helps to ensure the integrity of the examination process as one of the rigorous requirements for attaining certification.
- Remote proctor: The primary proctor solution for the majority of AIF® and PPC® Designation Candidates is the Fi360-contracted remote proctor solution, ProctorU. Any AIF® and PPC® Designation Candidate who wishes to take the exam at home and on-demand must schedule with ProctorU. No other remote proctoring solution is authorized for taking those exams. Instructions for scheduling a proctor are provided as part of your training workflow.
- On-site proctor for group-based training and exam: For in-person training events arranged by or in consultation with Fi360, an in-person proctor may be arranged for a group exam setting. Those proctors must be provided by or pre-approved and trained by Fi360.
- Special accommodations: In special circumstances, a candidate may request Fi360 approve an in-person proctor for an individual exam attempt (i.e. outside the remote proctoring solution and group-based exam environment). Fi360 must approve the accommodation and the proctor in advance of the exam being administered.
To request, a candidate must notify firstname.lastname@example.org 10 days in advance of the requested examination date. The candidate is responsible for securing and scheduling a proctor which will need to be approved by Fi360. After Fi360 reviews and approves the request and proctor Fi360 will provide the candidate and the proctor detailed next steps.
The same proctor guidelines are in place for exam retakes. If a candidate took their previous attempt under the supervision of an in-person proctor at a group exam setting, they should follow the instructions to schedule a remote proctor for subsequent retakes.
