IPC Provides Online Proctored Exams for CIT, CIS and CSE Certification


Reading time ( words)

As the electronics industry continues to respond to new challenges emerging daily on COVID-19, IPC answered the industry’s request to continue IPC certification and provide provisions for those individuals working from home offices.

IPC integrated a remote proctoring solution into IPC EDGE for all Certified IPC Specialist (CIS), Certified IPC Trainer (CIT), Certified Interconnect Designer (CID/CID+) and Certified Standards Expert (CSE) programs. Remote proctoring includes a combination of a live virtual proctor, artificial intelligence, and video/audio recording and analysis to monitor candidates as they sit for the certification exam without the need for an in-person proctor. Currently, remote proctoring is not available for hands-on modules and exams.

To help defray the additional cost of online proctoring, IPC has subsidized a portion of the fee for those seeking either certification or recertification.

“Our goal is to provide our entire training community a safe and secure certification experience during these trying times,” said David Hernandez, vice president, Education. “As governments enacted shelter in place orders, IPC moved to offer this remote exam proctoring service as quickly as possible. We are committed to serving our worldwide industry as we face this crisis together.”

For more information regarding online proctored exams, visit IPC’s certification portal at https://certification.ipcedge.org. Instructors and students require a log-in.
