Provider agrees to give the exam in a proctored setting. The proctor must be a school employee.
During the Exam
Each student is required to use the same personal email address for all exams.
Students must take their own exams.
If a student fails any segment of an exam, the student must wait 14 days before retaking that exam.
Students must first pass the CSWA exam before taking any other Professional level exam
