Exam Proctor Criteria

The American College's Guidelines for Exam Proctors:

The American College requires that every examination be proctored by a "disinterested third party who is not the moderator, not a relative, an immediate supervisor nor employee of the producer and one that has no financial or personal interest in the outcome of the examination." States having additional or alternate requirements are noted below. Students must follow all posted guidelines regardless of the reason for taking the course.

Please note: Pearson-Vue will act in lieu of the state required affidavit for the following states:

AL, CO, GA, PA, AZ, CT, MA, VT, WV, NC, OH, IA, MT, MI, HI and NY.

This means that students who take their exam at a Pearson-Vue testing center only for any of the above states will not have to submit a signed Proctor Affidavit back to the Continuing Education Department.

The remaining Proctor Affidavit states MUST have their affidavit signed at Pearson-Vue’s testing center and have it faxed to 610-526-1402 within 24-hours. These states are as follows:

MS, SC, AR, FL, MO, NE, VA, NV, IN, WI, DC

Any student taking their exam outside of a Pearson-Vue testing center MUST have the Proctor Affidavit signed and returned regardless of the location for ALL affidavit states listed below.

Click on your domicile state below to access the proctor affidavit. Affidavits must be brought to the testing center on the day of the exam. The exam center will not be able to provide them for you. All affidavits must be faxed to The American College CE Department (fax: 610-526-1402) no later than the day following the exam. State insurance continuing education will not be granted if your monitor/proctor affidavit is not received in a timely manner. Students who fail to return the appropriate affidavit will have to take the exam again if CE is desired. If your state is not listed, you do not have to fill out a proctor affidavit but you do need to select a proctor in accordance with The American College's guidelines.
