DECEMBER WINDOW TESTING UPDATE

    • We currently offer two testing environments for the VA-BC Exam:
      • Test Centers: in numerous locations across the U.S. and Canada
      • ProProctor Remotely-proctored Exams: launched in June in response to COVID
    • Due to large volumes and new technologies, ProProctor experienced some challenges in our June window. Those are continually being addressed for enhancements and improvement.
    • However, now that test centers are opening to handle full capacity and in order to offer candidates a more familiar, user-friendly experience, we recommend you schedule your December exam at a test center.
    • The current testing option for international candidates (outside the U.S. and Canada) is ProProctor.
    • We will continue to post updates to this site throughout the window.
