The test is administered online by a proctor either by webcam or at a proctoring location, and the proctoring service verifies the identity of individuals taking the examination. The administration of the examination will be made available through video conferencing at an examinee’s location or at a commercial proctoring site identified by HUD’s contractor. Those choosing to take the examination online must have equipment available. Additional information on test locations and online proctoring is available on HUD’s Housing Counseling website on HUD’s website for Housing Counselors Training and Testing for Certification.
