Beginning on September 1, 2017, all final exams for 30-hour courses will require some form of proctoring. The following are acceptable third party proctors:
(A) employees at official testing or learning/tutoring centers;
(B) librarians at a school, university, or public library;
(C) college, university, secondary, or elementary school – Administrators, faculty, teachers, or academic advisors
(D) clergy who are affiliated with a specific temple, synagogue, mosque, or church
(E) members of the court system – Judge, justice of the peace, magistrates, and prosecutors.
(F) law Enforcement Officers – Sergeant, lieutenant, or captain
(F) educational officers of a military installation or correctional facility.
TREC has temporarily eliminated the requirement for physical proctoring. For you, you will “proctor yourself” while taking the closed-book exam. At any time, TREC may revert back to the old proctoring requirement.
TREC will not accept a certificate of completion for a 30-hour course unless 3 days have elapsed since the date/time the course is started. Participation in this course must not exceed 12-hours per day. Example: If the course were started on March 2 at 11:00 AM, then the soonest date the final exam could be taken would be March 4 at 6:00 AM (3 days at 12 hours per day). Please note you are not required to work on the courses 12 hours per day, but this is the maximum amount of time per day. TREC does not permit starting and completing more than one 30-hour course within the same 3-days and in turn, will not award credit for courses/certificates that are not in compliance. These requirements must be met BEFORE attempting the final exam. Read more here.
