A NEW WAY TO GET CERTIFIED
The GCCC is excited to announce it will introduce remote proctoring beginning in June 2022. Remote proctoring allows certification candidates to take their exam remotely, without a standard, in-person proctor. Candidates will be monitored by a proctor provided by GCCC testing vendor, Prolydian/Examity, via a webcam from the candidate’s home or office.
More information on Remote Proctoring will be released in June!
While remote proctoring is not yet live, candidates applying for the CMP or SCMP will be able to monitor their candidate application and register their exam through the same platform. The GCCC will launch remote proctoring this summer.

This is my first remote proctored exam. What is it like?
Taking a remote proctored exam gives you the freedom and convenience to take your exam when you want to and where you want to. Remote proctored exams provided by our partner, Examity, require you to complete a few steps before you begin your exam. You'll have to complete your Examity profile, which you can easily access from your Prolydian account - you'll only ever need one log in. This profile setup has you upload the government issued photo ID you'll show the proctor when you start your exam. You also have to answer a few questions that will be used to verify your identity. The video above, "Scheduling a test with remote proctoring" walks you through those setup steps.
When you're ready to start your exam you'll be connected with an Examity proctor, who will verify your identity and check your surroundings. Make sure the room is free of people, pets, and clutter. You'll complete a 360 degree sweep of the room to make sure it's free of anything that might get in the way of your testing experience and then the test will begin. You have to stay on screen for the duration of the exam otherwise the proctor may have to pause or stop the session.
Make sure the laptop or computer you're using has Zoom or GoToMeeting installed on it. Our remote proctoring partners require use of one of these meeting applications to monitor the exam session.
