WHAT IS A TEST PROCTOR?
A Proctor is a person who supervises the administration of a test or examination. The Proctor is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the testing event and has no financial interest in the outcome of the testing. Proctors can charge fees for providing testing services. A REPA Registered Test Proctor is responsible for:
- Providing a safe, secure, classroom or similar facility suitable for providing testing.
- Ordering and receiving the training and testing materials provided by REPA.
- Proctor the exam for as few as one student or as many as a full classroom.
- Return exams to REPA for grading.
WHO CAN BECOME A PROCTOR?
A test proctor does not need to be certified to become a proctor. For example a proctor can be:
- An in-house instructor.
- A business owner.
- A Teacher.
- Maintenance worker or manager.
- Office Administrator.
Anyone can be a test proctor even if they are not in the HVAC/R industry as long as they adhere to the provisions of their contract with REPA.
