ASIS International, the world’s association of security management professionals, offers the ability for security professionals to participate in remotely proctored exams for its board certifications. Following the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, this new option allows professionals who cannot-or would rather not-travel to their nearest Prometric test center to sit for their exams in their own home or office: anytime, anywhere, at no increased cost.
Taking exams remotely
Using Prometric’s ProProctor remote proctoring software, those who are pursuing the Certified Protection Professional (CPP), Professional Certified Investigator (PCI), Physical Security Professional (PSP), or Associate Protection Professional (APP) exams can do so anywhere there is a solid internet connection. While taking the exams remotely has different check-in procedures, the exams themselves will not change no matter where an individual chooses to take the exam.
Earning an ASIS certification shows your peers, colleagues, and supervisors that you have mastered the knowledge and skills"
“The ASIS certification programs continue to be the gold standard for anyone working in security management,” stated Joseph L. Rector, CPP, PCI, PSP, 2020 Professional Certification Board Vice Chair. “Earning an ASIS certification shows your peers, colleagues, and supervisors that you have mastered the knowledge and skills to be a successful security manager. And now we offer the convenience of taking the exam in your own home. This is a major development in certification, and we believe our members will appreciate having this option available to them.”
ASIS Approved For ProProctor Option
ASIS began investigating remote proctoring when test center availability was impacted at the start of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. Based on its accreditation under the ANSI/ISO 17024 Standard, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) awarded ASIS permission to move forward with the ProProctor option in July 2020.
