Remote Proctored CSP Exam:

The number of examinees is limited by the number of available proctors.  The application form will be disabled when the maximum number of examinees for the Remote Proctored CSP Exam has been reached. 

  • Minimum System Requirements 
  • install SmarTest Lock per your OS:
    • Windows
    • Apple/Mac (if an error is displayed and are unable to install SmartTest Lock try the following: System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General and click on Allow Anyway at the bottom of the page.  Click on Continue again from the SmarTest Lock App.  Admin access may be required.) 
  • Desktop or laptop only - tablets, mobile/smart phones are NOT compatible
  • Operating Systems (OS) Requirements: Windows 8, 8.1, 10, 11 or macOS Catalina and higher
  • Chrome only - Edge, Safari and Firefox are NOT compatible

  • 1-3 days before the Remote Proctored CSP Exam a unique link will be emailed - only limited login access is available before proctors are available.  The link will allow you to test your device's compatibility. The email will be from support@certifyassessment.com 
  • Additional exam-taking requirements are included in the Application
  • If SmarTest Lock does not install, or my device does not meet minimum system requirements, use a different device. 
  • Generic Test-Taker Guidelines for login (disregard the sections on Material checks and Toilet break checks - neither is permitted for the Remote Proctored CSP Exam).  The Guidelines mentions a "keycode" (same as the Test Code) that is displayed on the left side of your screen - type in or copy/paste it into the field to enter the CSP exam. 

Not recommended waiting till the day of the CSP exam to complete the above steps in case of technical difficulties.

ON THE DAY OF THE REMOTE PROCTORED CSP Exam:
Do not attempt to login the the Remote Proctored CSP Exam earlier than the appointed exam date/time.  When installing the SmartLock application you may get a popup stating not to run the application.  Click the More Info link and select Run Anyway.  There may also be a long waiting period while SmartLock loads and checks the computer system so please be patient - having to wait several minutes is not unusual.  Even entering the exam late will not reduce the 150-minutes to complete the exam as the count-down clock does not start until the first exam item is presented.  

Additional exam-taking requirements are specified in the Attestation section of the Application and your exam registration confirmation email.
