FADA is proud to offer a virtually proctored Certified Technician Exam that enables participants to test from home. Virtual proctoring will not replace a traditional proctored test but is being offered due to the extenuating circumstances with COVID-19 while traditional lab space is unavailable. The test is delivered in the same test delivery system.
Upon successful completion of the test, the same FADA credential will be awarded that would have been earned in a traditional proctoring situation. The procedure for virtually proctored test is different from the traditional process. The test will be available May 4th, but you can start getting prepared now. If you are interested in testing, please contact Tim Withee (404.502.1535) for more information. You may also read an overview HERE.
