For those planning to sit for the National Commodity Futures Exam, or Series 3, FINRA is now offering candidates the option to take the exam online via Prometric’s ProProctor platform. 

Since mid-2020, FINRA has offered online delivery of certain securities exams via the ProProctor remote service, allowing you to choose where and when to take your exam.

The ProProctor platform features an easy-to-use interface and 24/7 proctor support for a smooth test-taking experience. But it’s a good idea to be aware of the technical and security requirements before sitting for your exam remotely. 

In addition to the Series 3 and other NFA exams, these exams can be taken online: the Securities Industry Essentials (SIE), Series 6, Series 7, Series 63, Series 65, and Series 66 exams. 

For detailed information about taking exams online, including technical and procedural specifications, visit FINRA’s information page: https://www.finra.org/registration-exams-ce/qualification-exams/testonline
