What can I expect with online OnVUE testing (from my home or office)?
Before you take the exam, you need to do a bit of preparation:
Make sure you have a functioning home computer with a webcam and strong internet connection.
Run a system check to test the compatibility of the OnVUE application.
Roommates or pets? Make sure your space is free from noise or distractions.
Clear the room of any preparation materials or unauthorized items to avoid exam violations.
On exam day:
You will take photos of your government-issued ID and your testing environment, as well as a headshot.
Your photos will be reviewed and your exam will be queued up. Most candidates will start their exam within 15 minutes of their appointment time.
If your pictures don’t pass review, you will be joined by a greeter as soon as possible to help you troubleshoot.
You will be monitored by a VUE-certified proctor via webcam and microphone throughout your test to ensure the integrity and security of your exam experience.
IMPORTANT. Begin the check-in process 30 minutes BEFORE your scheduled exam time. While these tasks are easy, they can take up to 30 minutes to complete.
