Credentialed Practical Exam Proctors are authorized to offer the NWSA practical exam at approved NWSA Practical Test Sites.

Practical Exam Proctor credentials are valid for five years. Once credentialed, you will receive a Practical Exam Proctor packet with the documentation necessary to conduct NWSA practical exams. You will also receive an official NWSA Credential wallet card listing the practical exams for which you are credentialed and are eligible to administer practical exams.

To be an NWSA-credentialed Practical Exam Proctor, you must:

  • Be certified by NWSA in both certification designations (TTT-1 and TTT-2)
  • Have three (3) years of industry-related experience
  • Attend a NWSA Practical Exam Proctor Workshop, during which your performance as a Practical Exam Proctor will be observed and evaluated
  • Pass a Practical Exam Proctor Workshop written exam testing your knowledge of the role of the Practical Exam Proctor and the test administration process
  • Have a direct email address to receive email notifications from NWSA (this may not be a shared address)

If you are interested in becoming a Practical Exam Proctor, visit the Practical Exam Proctor Workshops page to see if any workshops are available. (Please note that you must first be certified in both TTT1 and TTT2 prior to submitting a workshop application.)
