What are proctored exams? An exam is given in a specific content area that is supervised by a neutral person. These exams are timed and require you to bring an ID to double-check that the correct person is taking the test. Bring an unexpired driver's license, state ID card, or passport with photo and signature. Bring your ECC ID number or ECC ID card. You can reserve a seat for your proctored exam using the links below. On the day of the test, please arrive 15 minutes before the test time.  

To ensure we have a seat for you, please register for your proctored exam below.
