All NRPP exams are proctored remotely online through a live proctoring platform called Examity. Exam candidates will present their Government-issued photo ID, answer a security question and complete a biometric keystroke match. The Proctor will explain exam rules and instruct test-takers to perform a 360-degree room scan to confirm the workspace is free of any unauthorized materials. Exam sessions are recorded from start to finish and any suspicious behavior will be flagged. Once completed, the exam recording is audited for quality control. Once audited, test-takers receive their exam results via email within 48-72 business hours. You may purchase exam study guides here: Student Study Guides. If you need to retake an exam or schedule an additional exam, you will need to return to this website to purchase another exam prior to scheduling with Examity. If you would like to request special exam accommodations due to a disability or language barrier, please fill out and submit our special accommodations form here: special accommodations form.
