On-Line Examination Instructions and Information

Instructions for Examinations through ProctorU:

Please note, to schedule an examination, you must have your registration or application information approved by CISEC, Inc.  You can find out about the various examinations and links to the IECA eHub for purchase HERE (US) or HERE (Canada).  Once you are approved, an email will be sent with information on scheduling your examination with ProctorU.  Please make sure to use the link in that email to schedule the exam.

ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that allows you to take your exam from the comfort of your home.  ProctorU is available 24/7, however, you will need to schedule your proctoring session at least 72 hours in advance to avoid any on-demand scheduling fees.  Creating a ProctorU account is simple.  You can do so by clicking here

In order to use ProctorU, you will need:

  • A high-speed internet connection,
  • A webcam (internal or external),
  • A desktop or laptop (smartphones, tablets and chromebooks are not supported),
  • A Windows or Apple operating system, and
  • A government issued photo ID.

ProctorU recommends that you visit https://go.proctoru.com after creating your account to test out your equipment prior to your exam.  Simply click on the “Test My Equipment” button located at the top of the screen.  Please make sure that you are using the current version of your browser and have downloaded the ProctorU extension available here for Chrome and here for Firefox.

Additionally, please visit and review the test-taker resource center here.  You should expect the startup process with the proctor to take about 10-15 minutes.  However, this time will not affect your exam time.  Please feel free to direct any questions to the test taker support team via the live chat within your account.
