BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ProctorU is honored to announce a new partnership with CompTIA to offer secure online certification exams.
"We're honored to offer an online proctoring solution to CompTIA's multitude of testers and this partnership continues to establish ProctorU as a leader in the certification and professional testing market," said ProctorU Founder Jarrod Morgan. "As with all of our partnered institutions, online proctored exams are so important in today's fast-paced society, filling the needs of people's schedules and offering convenience."
The partnership allows test-takers to work virtually with a live proctor to complete the CompTIA Project+ PK0-003 exam, which is part of CompTIA's project management certification. ProctorU is the world's largest provider of online proctoring, having monitored over 2 million exams remotely since 2008.
"Online testing gives you the flexibility to take your CompTIA certification exam from anywhere, at any time, to fit your busy schedule. The secure, fully proctored service, powered by ProctorU, costs the same as our on-site exams," said CompTIA Director of Consumer & Alumni Marketing Lauren Pray.
CompTIA's Project+ certifies the knowledge and skills of professionals in project management. Project+ validates the ability to initiate, manage and support a project or business initiative. And it's not just for IT technicians; Project+ is designed for any individual who wants to validate project management experience.
ProctorU provides distance proctoring services for colleges, universities and certification organizations that offer examinations online. The service allows students to take their exams from nearly anywhere in a secured environment. ProctorU uses a patent-pending three-step process that confirms that the student who registered for the exam is the student who is taking the exam and is following the institution's testing requirements. The service is modeled after the in-classroom experience and proctors monitor the entire process in order to ensure that a high level of integrity is maintained throughout the exam process. ProctorU offers live, person-to-person, real-time monitoring to nearly 1,000 colleges, universities and certification organizations, including the University of Alabama, the University of Florida and Northwestern University. ProctorU operates dedicated proctoring centers in Folsom, Calif., Livermore, Calif. and Hoover, Ala.
