Proctored Examination Required
This course requires proctored exams. You will need to identify a person from your institution who will proctor your exams during business hours, Monday – Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Eastern USA Time. This person should be your Human Resources Training Manager, supervisor, or someone from the management team of your organization. Make sure to arrange your proctor well in advance of your exam date.

If you do not work with an institution, you will need to contact a university/college, library, or a testing center to request they proctor your exam. You will be asked to provide the telephone number of your proctor in case we need to reach that person for verification. A relative or friend cannot proctor an exam. All parties must abide by the ABA exam policy. There are no exceptions.​​​​​​​​​​
