Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, on March 17 Prometric closed its testing centers in the US and Canada, with these closures being extended until May 31st. It has now been announced that FINRA and NASAA plan to implement a new remote testing service, which will allow exam candidates to take selected exams using a camera-equipped computer. Exam testing will continue to be administered by Prometric, with their staff supervising the exams via video and online monitoring tools.
While this remote testing service is currently in its trial phase, FINRA plans to launch the service “in the near future” for selected exams, including the SIE, Series 6, Series 7, Series 63 and Series 66. It is expected that further exams will be included in the weeks following the launch of this innovative service.
Details will be available on FINRA’s COVID-19 information page from May 1st.
Prometric also announced that it plans to resume testing at certain test centers on May 1st, with limited capacity to maintain safe social distancing protocols. Further information will be updated on the Prometric Coronavirus Update page.
