Why are Proctors Important?

Proctors are 3rd party individuals who play an important role in the adminstration of an examination. They work on behalf of the NHCO as an independent 3rd party. Their role ensures that no one cheats, and that everyone plays by the same rules when taking the examination. Proctors play a vital role in exam security, and are compensated for their time when giving the examination. Proctors do not help students, and are there to keep things organized, honest and within time the alloted time limits of the examination.

NHCO is always looking for proctors, to register as a proctor in your area, please send an email to [email protected]
