  • Once notified of the MRC’s approval to take the exam, you will need to schedule the online exam date with our remote testing partner, ProctorU. Specific exam dates are subject to availability. 

    If you need to reschedule or cancel an exam, note the following:

    • Rescheduling your exam may incur a rescheduling fee. To avoid it, schedule your exam more than 72 hours in advance of the desired exam date.

    • If you need to cancel the exam, you must provide a cancellation notice at least 24 hours before your appointment to be eligible for a refund, minus a US$150 administrative fee. 
    • If you fail to show up for a scheduled exam without a prior cancellation notice, you will not be eligible for a refund.

    Before the exam, ensure you meet the technical requirements for the exam:

    • You must download approved software from ProctorU to ensure the exam is secure. Please ensure the computer you plan to use allows you to download and install third-party software before taking the test. We do not recommend testing on your employer’s computer due to potential firewalls, permissions, and security settings that might not be compatible with the ProctorU application. 
    • Review the equipment requirements from ProctorU to ensure you are using the supported technology.
    • Contact us regarding any additional technical questions which may not be covered in the equipment requirements list.
