You want to take your LEED exam, but you probably don't want to visit a testing center with the COVID-19 outbreak. If that's your situation, U.S. Green Building Council has a new solution for you! On May 2020, USGBC announced that individuals can now take the LEED Green Associate and LEED AP with specialty exams from home, all online! Before the pandemic, the only option to take a LEED exam was to go to a Prometric testing center and take the 2 hour exam at their locations around the world. With the ProProctor app of Prometric, test-takers can now take their exams from the comfort of their homes!
To take your LEED exam from home, test-takers should first make sure their computers is compatible with remote proctoring and then they should install the ProProctor app to their computers. ProProctor is the remote proctoring application of Prometric that allows the Prometric proctor to oversee the examination process remotely. For the remotely proctored exam, your computer must have a camera, microphone and an internet connection.
In order to take your LEED exam from your own computer, you need to follow three main steps from the ProProctor's website:
1- Perform a system check to confirm that your computer is compatible with remote proctoring.
2- Download and install the ProProctor application from the Prometric's website.
3- Launch your exam before the scheduled start time and complete the inspection of your testing environment.
If you have already reserved your seat at a Prometric testing center and want to change your test taking method to the online exam, you can cancel your original appointment and then schedule your online exam by visiting the Prometric's website.
Now you have completed all the steps and you are ready for the exam day. What's next? Well, other than the virtual check-in requirements, it is the same test as you would take at the testing center. However, there are also some important points to know for the online exam.
