The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards announced today that it will provide remote proctoring for the September 22-29, 2020, CFP exam due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Advisors who have to travel 50 miles or more to a test center or have health concerns will be eligible to take the test from home or a location of their choice.
According to the CFP Board, Prometric, the test delivery vendor, will administer the exam through the ProProctor remote assessment platform versus at a Prometric test center, which still is an option. The proctor will monitor the candidate through audio and video during the remote exam.
The remote option is only available to those who are eligible based on location or health. The exam will be the same as is in the test centers.
