With a computer-based online proctored exam, you write the exam using your own computer in your own environment while being proctored (monitored) by an individual in a different location. The exam is delivered through the computer and you will answer each test question by inputting the information into your computer.

Technology is used to allow the proctor to monitor your activity during the exam and to communicate with you if necessary. You are required to meet specific systems requirements to take the test using this format.

Yes, the exam is available in French and English.

  • A working webcam
  • Microphone (or headphones with a microphone)
  • A stable and fast Internet connection
  • Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browsers (Note: Google Chrome is recommended. Safari is not supported).

Students must also perform a demonstration test on their computer to prepare for their actual exam. The demo test helps students get familiar with the exam interface and checks their equipment and Internet connection.

The regulators have mandated that the LLQP certification exam be proctored and limit exam attempts to 4. IFSE believes the single certification exam combined with the prerequisite learning activities provides an excellent indicator of a student’s grasp of the topic areas. The single exam is also practical.  Given IFSE’s experience with online proctoring, we want to offer students a solution that is cheaper, easier, and simpler, resulting in - fewer technical issues and no need to reschedule multiple modular exams (especially re-writes).

No.​ The provincial licensing exams remain in a modular format.

IFSE has partnered with YouTestMe to offer computer-based testing on IFSE’s platform.

No. Since we’re arranging proctoring for IFSE’s students only, there will be set dates and times similar to paper-based exams.
