Technical Considerations

The technical requirements for your exam candidate to take an online exam with a live proctor are found on most computers. No proprietary hardware or software is required. Our process of conducting a system check ensures that the selected computer will work. The minimum set of requirements is identified here and includes the basic requirement for internet access:


1.      Photo Identification must be a valid government-issued ID (Driver’s License, Passport).  Any exceptions will need to be approved by ILCO prior to scheduling your exam.

3.       A reliable high-speed internet connection (Minimal 4Mbps Download and 2 Mbps upload).
