Security is paramount to examinations, and we have designed policies and protocols to protect the validity of our examinations and to prevent anyone from gaining an unfair advantage. When registering for any of NBCC's examinations, you must agree to our terms and conditions.
NBCC offers examinations using a variety of options: in person through a Pearson VUE testing center, or online using OnVUE, or Examity. No matter what delivery method you choose, when you are registering to take one of NBCC’s examinations, you are agreeing to all appropriate security procedures. These include, but are not limited to the following:
You can learn more about Pearson VUE’s security policies for candidates on its website.
You are required to capture four photos or conduct a “room sweep” of your testing environment.
Constant online proctoring/monitoring will be conducted by both artificial intelligence and a trained proctor via webcam and microphone throughout the examination.
You must review all submitted information and follow-ups, as needed, with a proctoring team member.
You can learn more about how Pearson VUE’s online platform, OnVUE, protects candidate information and data on the Pearson VUE website.
NBCC also offers examinations through Examity, one of our secure online partners. Examity allows candidates to conveniently take examinations from any secure location with internet access, and candidate information is safe guarded by robust firewall protection, and under government regulations. You can learn more about how Examity protects candidates’ data on its website.
If you would like to report any suspected violations of our security measures, including confidentiality breaches, cheating, or other examination concerns, please complete the secure form below or contact a member of our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
