Prometric today announced it has secured agreements with several insurance licensing regulators to leverage Prometric’s ProProctor remote proctoring solution to greatly expand access to the licensing examination programs in their states. This expanded service offering will complement the existing network of professional testing locations provided by Prometric and will provide aspiring insurance professionals with greater flexibility in selecting a date, time and location to complete their exams. Prometric developed the ProProctor solution to address the needs of testing programs, including state insurance regulators, to better support candidates in geographically dispersed communities that have lacked convenient access to testing programs in the past.
“Wisconsin is a large state with both low and high population densities,” said Rebecca Rebholz, Director of Bureau of Market Regulation. “With ProProctor, we will be able to better serve our insurance candidates throughout the state, no matter their location.” In addition to Wisconsin, test takers in Nebraska, North Dakota and Vermont will also have access to remotely proctored licensing exams.
The ProProctor solution uses the same test delivery software as Prometric’s fixed test center locations, ensuring a consistent testing experience across testing modalities. ProProctor offers unparalleled security including 100% live real-time proctoring that provides personalized support and identity verification prior to any presentation of examination content. The application is designed to reduce stress and anxiety by using non-intrusive monitoring and an easy-to-use communication environment, providing higher test taker satisfaction.
“We have been working with state regulators to address their challenges and are pleased to bring this innovative remote proctoring solution to the insurance industry,” said Brad Erickson, Prometric Insurance Industry Account Executive.
