Taking a Remote Exam

Taking the CPAN or CAPA Exam Online with a Remote Proctor

Live Remote Proctoring is a safe, secure and convenient way to schedule and sit for your certification exam. Earn a valuable CPAN or CAPA certification from the convenience of your home or office!

Remote proctoring uses a non-invasive platform that allows professional proctors and technology to monitor test candidates live while they complete the certification exam. This method of test delivery enables the CPAN or CAPA candidate to take the certification exam from their home, office or a remote site, using their own computer.

This online remote exam means that a remote proctor is actively watching the exam candidate during the time of the test administration in order to safeguard the exam integrity and validity. This is similar to the role of a proctor during an in-person exam at a testing center.

Is the Online Remote Exam Option for Me?

The online remote option does place more responsibility on you as a candidate to ensure your equipment and location meet the technical requirements, including stable Internet and access to a webcam. It is recommended that you use your personal computer instead of a company-issued computer because of security settings that may block necessary functions.

If unable to meet these requirements, taking the CPAN or CAPA exam in person at a PSI Testing Center will be the better option for you. Both the online and in-person testing environments for the exams provide the same level of rigor and security.

Watch the candidate experience video so that you are familiar with the online proctoring process.


Please refer to the Certification Candidate Handbook for complete information on eligibility, remote exam policies and other requirements for taking the CPAN or CAPA certification exams.
