IT professionals can now take their exams on-demand and securely at a time and location that suits them.
Utrecht, The Netherlands (PRWEB) April 02, 2012
EXIN’s CEO, Michiel van der Lande, about taking exams online: “This innovative way of taking exams offers enormous benefits to candidates. Using their own computer and webcam, IT professionals can now take their exams on-demand and securely at a time and location that suits them. It saves travel time to testing centers, and reduces the stress of taking an exam.”
Now, with Exams Online, taking an online exam is as easy as one-two-three. Step 1 - Candidates registering for an online exam enter a secure environment; Step 2 - The candidate’s identity is verified and exam room conditions are scanned by the webcam; Step 3 - The candidate takes the exam, during which the candidate is monitored for violations of exam policy, similar to those in a proctored classroom setting, i.e. talking to others, accessing the internet, or leaving the room.
EXIN developed this secure online proctoring solution in conjunction with Software Secure, the market leader in secure and cost-effective computer-based testing solutions for traditional and distance learning environments in higher education and certification programs. Douglas M. Winneg, CEO and founder of Software Secure, said “We are delighted to partner with EXIN, one of the leaders in the IT Certification industry, to provide Software Secure’s innovative technology as an integral part of EXIN’s strategy to deliver certification exams more conveniently for busy IT professionals – but with the same exam integrity as found in a proctored testing center”.
EXIN Anywhere - Exams Online eliminates the need for acquiring new hardware or software, or pre-scheduling a proctor. This service provides candidates with an easily accessible and convenient method to take their exams.
‘Exams Online’ is available as of April 2, 2012 in the US. Candidates can take the following exams online (all Foundation level): ITIL, ITSM, EXIN Cloud Computing, Green IT, IT Security and all other EXIN exams.
EXIN will initially launch the service in the United States of America. However, EXIN Anywhere - Exams Online will also be made available in other countries in the near future. Additional services will be launched around the summer of 2012 which will expand EXIN Anywhere into a convenient enterprise solution for large organizations and training partners as well.
