Test Center Security

Protecting Honest Test takers and Ensuring Fair Test Experiences

Prometric takes our role of providing a secure test environment seriously. During the check-in process, we inspect any and all eyeglasses, jewelry and other accessories to look for camera devices that could be used to capture exam content. 

You will be required to remove your eyeglasses for close visual inspection. These inspections will take a few seconds and will be done at check-in and again upon return from breaks before you enter the testing room to ensure you do not violate any security protocol.

Jewelry outside of wedding and engagement rings is prohibited. Please do not wear other jewelry to the test center. Hair accessories and ties are subject to inspection. Please refrain from using ornate clips, combs, barrettes, headbands, tie clips, cuff links and other hair accessories as you may be prohibited from wearing them in to the testing room and asked to store them in your locker. Violation of security protocol may result in the confiscation of prohibited devices and termination of your exam.

For All Prometric Test Centers: Providing Candidate-friendly Reminders for Break Policy Requirements

As we continue to enhance security controls for our global network of test centers, we have implemented candidate-friendly reminders that will help you better understand what you are allowed to do during your breaks depending on the exam you are taking. In test centers, you will notice signage similar to what is shown below.

It is important for you to take note of the color coding designations because prior to your computer check in process a color tag will be attached to your locker key. It will serve as a visual reminder of the permissible activities during your breaks, such as having access to your locker, food, beverages and medication.
