DECEMBER WINDOW TESTING UPDATE

      • We currently offer two testing environments for the VA-BC Exam:
        • Test Centers: in numerous locations across the U.S. & Canada
        • ProProctor Remotely-proctored Exams: launched in June in response to COVID
      • Due to large volumes and new technologies, ProProctor experienced some challenges during our June window. Those are continually being addressed for enhancements and improvement.
      • However, now that test center accessibility is near 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.
