Testing at a Prometric Test Center
The ParaPro test is given at Prometric centers. See a list of Prometric test centers.
At Home Testing
You can take the ParaPro test remotely on your own computer at home or another secure location. The test is monitored by a human proctor online through ProProctor®, and appointments are available 8 a.m.–5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.
Before scheduling an at home appointment, be sure that you meet the equipment and environment requirements for at home testing. If you don't meet these requirements, you won't be able to test at home. Once you've confirmed that you meet the requirements, you can register and schedule your appointment through ProProctor.
Test Retake Policy
Whether you retake the test at home or at a test center, you cannot retake a ParaPro Assessment within 28 days of your test date. You must wait 28 days before taking the test again. For example, if you take the test on the first of the month, you cannot take it again until the 29th day of the month. If you violate this restriction, the score from your retest will not count and your test fee will not be refunded.
Cancel, Reschedule or Modify Your Prometric Test Center or At Home Appointment
Changes to your registration must be made through Prometric. If you cancel the original test by the appropriate deadline, you may be eligible for a refund of $42.50. For additional information, please visit the Prometric website.
Note for at home testing: You must make changes at least three days prior to your test date. There is a $42.50 fee to change your test date.
