  • You are required to use a desktop computer or laptop with a webcam and stable high-speed internet connection to access the exam. 
    Tip: It is recommended to use a personal computer/laptop to minimize potential interruptions due to firewalls or software restrictions, which are more commonly found on work-issued devices.

Prior to the Day of Your Exam

Prior to the scheduled exam day:

  • Ensure that your username and login work with the AssessBank testing platform.
    • Note that you will not see your registered exam until your scheduled exam day. You must not start any exam until you are connected and checked in with a live proctor and your proctor allows you to start the exam.

  • Book your virtual proctoring with eProctor Canada during the booking window (March 18 - April 1, 2024). Although you may be registered for an exam with your respective regulator, you must book a time slot with eProctor Canada to be able to connect with a live proctor on the day of your exam.

More information and instructions can be found in the Candidate Guide for Online Technical Exams.

On the Day of your Exam

Candidates are expected to log in through the eProctor Canada application at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled time. This allows time to address any system or internet connectivity issues (if needed) and also allows proctors ample time to conduct the check-in process and review exam procedures.

Please review and closely follow the instructions in the guide on How to Access Your Exam, Do's and Don'ts for Virtual Examinations and the Candidate Guide for Online Technical Exams.
